  • OF Tony Campana

Move:

  • MI Zack Cozart (from SS)

Notes:

  • Braves RP Kris Medlen was originally drafted by Get Off Kong! in the 2012 WBRL Minor League draft (first round, 4th overall), but was released last week (June 5th). He has been sent down to Triple-A Gwinnett to stretch out as a starter, and will return to the Braves rotation in a few weeks. He carries an $8 salary for the 2012 season.

  • 2B/OF Alex Castellanos was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque yesterday, June 11th.
  • In FAAB action, I had bid $2 on Pirates OF Alex Presley, but Get Off Kong! bid $13 (Shoeless Jews bid $6, and Cover Zero bid $0).
  • My contingency for Presley was Padres Triple-A 2B prospect Jedd Gyorko, who may be on the verge of getting called up.  I bid $0, but Get Off Kong! bid $1.

 

Roster Moves – Week 10 – June 5th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP Shawn Camp, Cubs ($2 bid, add to actives)
  • RP Brad Lincoln, Pirates ($1 bid, add to actives)
  • 2B/OF Alex Castellanos, Dodgers ($1, reserve)

Up:

  • 2B/3B Elian Herrera (to MI)

  • SP Mike Minor

  • SP Jake Westbrook
  • SP Archie Bradley

Notes:

  • On May 31st, SS Troy Tulowitzki was placed on the 15-Day DL with a strained left groin.
  • SP Tim Stauffer has no timetable for his return from a sprained elbow injury, so I needed the roster space.
  • SP Jake Westbrook has lost his effectiveness, with an 8.55 ERA and 1.850 WHIP over the past three weeks.
  • 2B/OF Alex Castellanos was the fallback bid for Braves SS Andrelton Simmons.  I bid $6, and Get Off Kong! bid $7 (he had already released him). GOK had bid on Castellanos as 3rd contingency for $2.
  • A contingency bid for Shawn Camp was Pirates (and 2012 RoadRunner) Jason Grilli. Shoeless Jews got him for $1.

Notes:

  • Last Tuesday, May 22nd, Cubs C Welington Castillo was placed on the 15-Day DL with a sprained right knee.

 

 

Roster Moves – Week 6 – May 8th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • OF Oscar Taveras, Cardinals ($0 bid, Prospect, Minors)
  • 3B Cody Ransom, Diamondbacks ($0 bid, Add to Actives at UT)

Move:

  • OF Tony Campana (from UT)

Down:

  • OF J.D. Martinez

Cut:

  • RP Fernando Salas
  • OF Domonic Brown (Minors)

Notes:

  • Bidding was heated on new Cubs closer Rafael Dolis. The Atomic RoadRunners bid $11, but X-Men won the bidding at $26. Other bids were $17 (Shoeless Jews) and $10 (Misogynistic Padres). Dolis will split time with James Russell (no bids) as Carlos Marmol has repeatedly imploded.
  • No other bids were placed on Taveras or Ransom.
  • Astros OF J.D. Martinez has been in a slump, batting .175 over the past 3 weeks, with only 2 extra-base hits (both doubles). He was batting .056 the past 7 games, with 1 hit in 18 AB.
  • Diamondbacks Cody Ransom has been playing a lot at 3B in place of ice-cold Ryan Roberts.  It won’t last for the 38-year old journeyman, but he’s currently hitting .351 with 4 HR in 37 AB this season, which could be useful.
  • RP Fernando Salas was released due to poor performance. Benched on the RoadRunners after Week 2, Salas keeps getting lit up, with a 6.35 ERA and 2.029 WHIP, and his numbers are trending the wrong way.  21-14-7 day progression for ERA: 7.04 – 8.44 – 10.80.  Same for WHIP: 2.087 – 2.250 – 2.700.  Stats while active for AaRr: 3.2 IP, 6 K’s, 4.91 ERA, 1.91 WHIP. Looks like we got out before too much damage had occurred.
  • Phillies “prospect” OF Domonic Brown was released as well. The Phillies basically ruined him. The brought in 3 free-agent OF’s to compete for the LF job (Scott Podsednik, Juan Pierre, and Laynce Nix), plus incumbent John Mayberry, Jr.  Meanwhile, the future of the elderly franchise gets sent to AAA for the third season, where he’s (probably) dejected and is currently batting .247 in 93 ABs with 0 HR, 3 SB, 9 Runs and 13 RBI, with an OPS of .645.  If anyone needs a change of scenery, Brown is it.
  • Meanwhile new OF prospect, St. Louis Cardinal Oscar Taveras, is raking, and is primed to contribute in 2013.  Currently assigned to Double-A Springfield, Taveras is hitting .325 in 114 ABs, with 8 HR, 27 RBI, 16 Runs and 2 SB – with an OPS of 1.032.

 

Roster Moves – Week 4 – April 24th, 2012

FAAB Acquisition:

  • OF Tony Campana, Cubs ($5 bid, add to actives at UT)

Up:

  • RP Wilton Lopez

Down:

  • 2B Daniel Descalso (from UT)

Cut:

  • RP Jason Grilli

Notes:

  • With SP Chris Narveson going on the DL (and subsequently being out for the year with a torn labrum), Brewers called up SP Wily Peralta on Saturday, but sent him back down to Triple-A Nashville on Monday.  Peralta basically assisted in long relief while Kameron Loe was on the bereavement list.
  • There were no other bids on OF Tony Campana, who looks to get a large amount of playing time in CF after the Cubs traded Marlon Byrd to the Red Sox.  Campana already had 2 steals his first night.  I was pretty certain that I would be out-bid, but I’ll take an extra 20 steals any day.
