Reds trade C Chad Moeller to Dodgers for cash

August 11, 2007

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds traded catcher Chad Moeller to the Los Angeles Dodgers for cash considerations on Saturday.

The 32-year-old Moeller, signed by the Reds as a free agent in November, hit .167 with one home run and two RBIs in 30 games over three stints with Cincinnati this season.

He is expected to report to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Moeller is 32 already?

Athletics signed veteran outfielder Jeff DaVanon and assigned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

DaVanon, who was drafted by the A's in 1995 but traded as a minor leaguer, was released Aug. 4 by the Diamondbacks. He could get the call to the majors in September when the rosters expand.

I think this is a good thing for Jeff. He needs some consistent ABs to get his swing back. Hopefully he'll do well in September and find a spot next year.

Cardinals claim IF Barden off waivers

August 13, 2007
ST. LOUIS (TICKER) -- The St. Louis Cardinals claimed infielder Brian Barden off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday.

Barden, who was immediately optioned to Class AAA Memphis, had one hit in 12 at-bats after making the Opening Day roster for the Diamondbacks.

After being optioned to Class AAA Tucson in May, the 26-year-old hit .269 with two home runs and 29 RBI in 83 games for the Pacific Coast League Sidewinders.

ADVERTISEMENT


For his career, Braden has hit .297 and averaged nine home runs and 65 RBI over six seasons in the Diamondbacks minor league system.

Barden was one of the players featured in the Mojo channel production "The Show".

You can't watch the show without really pulling for the guy, even if you weren't a d back fan.

It's a shame that Bardewn struggled so much this season. After his 06 campaign, it looked like he had a clear big league future ahead of him. Now, who knows... but he did seem like a nice kid on the TV show.

Athletics purchased the contract of outfielder Jeff DaVanon from Triple-A Sacramento.

DaVanon hit .326/.442/.419 in 43 at-bats for Sacramento. If his shoulder is healthy, he could be a nice asset off the bench for the A's. Still, there's little reason to pick him up in AL-only leagues just yet.

Dan Richars 1st Major League Home run is a Grand Slam, for Wite Sox against Seattle.

Nationals optioned LHP Matt Chico to Triple-A Columbus.

The move makes room for Wily Mo Pena. Chico lost his spot with another subpar outing Friday against the Mets, meaning Joel Hanrahan will get to stay in the rotation. With a 4.96 ERA after skipping over Triple-A, Chico essentially met whatever expectations the Nationals should have had for him this year. He'll likely be needed to make some additional starts in September.

I suspect that move might be as much to limit his inning pitched this year. No need to injure the kid.

Exactly. I watched him pitch against the Mets last night; according to the TV radar gun, his fastball barely reached 85 mph. He's gassed out.

It's a smart idea to shut him down for the rest of the year.

Shea Hillenbrand went 4-for-6 with two RBI in Saturday's 14-inning loss to the Rockies.

Hillenbrand singled in the tying run for the Dodgers in the eighth, flaring a Jorge Julio slider just over a leaping Troy Tulowitzki for a single. All four of his hits were singles, but he's now 7-for-21 for the Dodgers.

Gee, if a certain local owner was in LA instead, Shea could get a multi-year contract with a NTC right now... Wink

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pinch-hitter Matt Kata's three-run double highlighted the Pirates' second rally from a four-run deficit against the Phillies in as many days, and Freddy Sanchez hit a go-ahead RBI double during the seven-run seventh inning that carried Pittsburgh to an oft-delayed 8-4 victory Sunday.

White Sox signed LHP Mike Myers to a one-year contract.

Myers, who was let go by the Yankees earlier this month, will be available on Monday night. The White Sox could send down Gavin Floyd to make room for him on the roster.

Russ Ortiz left Monday's game in the fifth inning with an undisclosed injury.

Ortiz's elbow might have flared up again on him. He allowed four runs before leaving, but he still would have been in line for the victory had he finished the fifth.

I wonder if Ortiz is trying to play off the injury and saying that he deserves another chance and the injury has nothing to do with it, he just needs more time...

As per today's Oregonian, Padres sign Casey Fossum to a minor league deal.

Right back in the lineup even though Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp both had nice games Wednesday, Luis Gonzalez went 0-for-4 Thursday against the Phillies.

Gonzalez is batting just .224 with one homer in 107 at-bats since the All-Star break. He's even stopped walking, with just five base on balls in the second half after he had 41 in 293 at-bats before the break. Especially after factoring in defense, the Dodgers would seem to be quite a bit better off with both Ethier and Kemp playing regularly right now. Blame Grady Little for continuing to sign play Gonzalez, but also blame GM Ned Colletti, who gave the 39-year-old a $7.35 million contract when there was very little upside to the move. Plus, Colletti had to know Little would stick with him far too long if he wasn't any good.

i was thinking the same thing but it has been 7 years and he has been with many teams and AAA teams, so we were not the only ones to give up on him....



On January 7, 2002 Cust was traded by the Diamondbacks with catcher J.D. Closser to the Colorado Rockies for pitcher Mike Myers.


thank goosh JD did not pan out cause this would be a deal you can throw into the pot labeled "shit moves"

Didn't necessarily matter in my book... we don't play with the DH so watching Cust play the OF and K 200 times would have more painful than the 35+ HR would be worth.
