Roster Moves – Week 28 – October 2nd, 2012 – Final 3 Days!

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • C Hector Sanchez, Giants ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • CM Kevin Frandsen, Phillies ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • MI Pete Kozma, Cardinals ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • UT D.J. LeMahieu, Rockies ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • RP Jonny Venters, Braves ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • RP Josh Stinson, Brewers ($0 bid, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • SP Edinson Volquez
  • SP Jake Westbrook

Move: 

  • OF Donovan Solano (from MI)

Down: 

  • RP Jon Axford
  • SP Jhoulys Chacin
  • C Ryan Hanigan
  • CM Chris Johnson
  • MI Logan Forsythe

Cut:

  • OF Travis Snider
  • SS Troy Tulowitzki
  • OF Justin Maxwell
  • SP Wily Peralta
  • SP Zack Greinke
  • RP Luke Gregerson

Notes:

  • All of the pick-ups were made specifically with categories in mind. With only three full days remaining in the season, and the Atomic RoadRunners in first place over Misogynistic Padres by one point, we need all the assistance we can get.
  • Batting Average: Frandsen, LeMahieu, Kozma, and Sanchez are all hitting over .300. Hanigan, Johnson, Forsythe, Snider and Maxwell were dragging on the AVG.
  • ERA: Stinson and Venters were brought aboard to assist. Westbrook and Volquez have both pitched their last games in the regular season, as has Peralta and Greinke, so they can’t help. (Westbrook and Volquez can help by not pitching while on the active roster).
  • Tulowitzki isn’t coming back. He went on the DL back in May. Thanks a lot – you owe me $31.
  • Meanwhile, the Misogynistic Padres also made six pickups (we were the only two teams to make FAAB bids). His were for RBI, SB, AVG, and potentially Saves: OF Alex Presley, C Jason Castro, RP Santiago Casilla (former 2012 RoadRunner), RP Philippe Aumont, RP Jared Hughes, and RP Craig Stammen.

Roster Moves – Week 13 – June 26th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SP Jake Westbrook, Cardinals ($2, add to actives)
  • SP Dallas Keuchel, Astros ($3, add to actives)

Up:

  • 3B Chris Johnson
  • SP Brad Lincoln

Down:

  • 3B Todd Frazier
  • SP Christian Friedrich
  • RP Jose Arredondo

Cut:

  • RP Josh Lindblom
  • RP Shawn Camp

Notes:

  • Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki underwent groin surgery on Wednesday, June 20th, and will be out up to 8 weeks (end of August). Tulo injured his groin during one of his final rehab appearances (hamstring) with Triple-A Colorado Springs.
  • Cardinals 1B Matt Adams was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday, June 22nd, where he will again play every day. Cardinals corner man Matt Carpenter returned from the DL, and with OF Jon Jay returning, 1B/2B/OF Allen Craig will likely take over primary 1B duties.
  • Cardinals SP Jake Westbrook rejoins the 2012 Roadrunners.  He was released on June 5th, and since has gone on a tear, so my mistake there. I bid $2 to get him back, and The Pi Train bid $1.
  • We were the only bidders on Houston SP Dallas Keuchel, who in two starts (14 innings) has a complete game, 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. Not many strikeouts, but we can use all the help we can get, and he’s at the Padres for his next start.
  • We lost the bidding for Pirates SP Kevin Correia, who has done well lately. RoadRunners bid $1, but The Pi Train got him for a $1 bid (I’m in 3rd place, he’s in 7th.)

 

Roster Moves – Week 12 – June 19th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP Jose Arredondo, Reds ($1, Add to Actives)
  • RP Josh Lindblom, Dodgers ($1, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • MI Elian Herrera
  • OF Jose Tabata (to UT)

Move:

  • SS Zack Cozart (from MI)
  • CM Todd Frazier (from UT)

Down:

  • SS Troy Tulowitzki
  • 3B Chris Johnson (from CM)
  • RP Shawn Camp

Cut:

  • RP Wilton Lopez
  • C Welington Castillo

Notes:

  • Cubs C Welington Castillo was activated from the 15-Day DL (knee) on Thursday, June 14th, and was optioned to Triple-A Iowa four days later (June 18th) with the activation of starting C Geovany Soto. Castillo still retains rookie eligibility.
  • Braves RP Kris Medlen was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday, June 15th, but in a surprise move, Jair Jurrjens (picked up by Misogynistic Padres for $0) was named the interim starter for the Braves, while Medlen will stay in middle-relief.
  • Astros RP Wilton Lopez was placed on the 15-Day DL with a strained elbow on June 15th.
  • Former 2012 RoadRunner Cody Ransom was picked up by his 3rd WBRL team of the season, with Shoeless Jews snagging the now Brewer for a $1 bid. He was released May 29th by Cover Zero.

 

Roster Moves – Week 11 – June 12th, 2012

FAAB Acquisition:

  • RP Kris Medlen, Braves ($3 bid, reserve)

Up:

  • SS Troy Tulowitzki
  • SP Mike Minor
  • OF Tony Campana

Move:

  • MI Zack Cozart (from SS)

Down:

  • SP Brad Lincoln
  • MI Elian Herrera

Cut:

  • 2B Alex Castellanos

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.
  • SS Troy Tulowitzki is already on rehab assignment with Triple-A Colorado Springs, and should be activated when eligible this Friday, June 15th.
  • 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)
  • 3B Chris Johnson (to CM)
  • OF Tony Campana

Move:

  • SS Zack Cozart (from MI to SS)

Down:

  • 1B Matt Adams (from CM)
  • OF Jose Tabata
  • SS Troy Tulowitzki (15-Day DL)
  • SP Mike Minor

Cut:

  • SP Tim Stauffer
  • 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.

 

Tulowitzki to Cool His Heel

Troy Tulowitzki has been diagnosed with a sore right heel. A big sigh of relief for the Rockies and their fans. Tulo was lifted from Thursday’s Cactus League game after hitting his foot with the end of his bat on a vicious third-strike swing. He expects to be fine in a few days. Tulowitzki (heel) will miss the Rockies’ next two games, the Denver Post reports. (Rotoworld / Troy Renck on Twitter)

Tulowitzki Signs Monster Contract Extension Through 2020

Rockies signed SS Troy Tulowitzki to a six-year, $119 million contract extension. Tulo is in the midst of a six-year, $31 million extension that he signed before the start of the 2008 season. With this new deal thrown into the mix, the 26-year-old shortstop will be guaranteed $157.75 million between now and 2020. While the long-term agreement involves a lot of risk on the side of the Rockies, Tulo batted .315/.381/.568 with 27 homers and 95 RBI this year and should remain a top offensive infielder throughout most of the deal.

Tulowitzki Won’t Require Off-Season Wrist Surgery

Troy Tulowitzki had a follow-up exam on his left wrist Thursday that showed no lingering inflammation. “All is well,” Tulowitzki told the Denver Post. He missed 33 games in the middle of the summer because of a broken wrist that many assumed would require offseason surgery. Alas, it has healed on its own and the shortstop should be at full health by the time spring training rolls around next season. He batted .315/.381/.568 with 27 homers and 95 RBI this past year.
