Fantasy Beat: Rotation Promotions

4

Bill Baer

Some veteran arms could be on the move, if not now then likely some time during the month of August. Which hurlers are likely to earn subsequent promotions?

The trade deadline is a bit of a hectic time for fantasy baseball players, especially as it pertains to starting pitchers. With so many rumors and so many players involved, it can be hard to follow at times. If you are not quick enough, you can lag behind the curve*. So, with the deadline nearly upon us, it is important to look at some of the candidates who could take the roles vacated by traded starting pitchers.

*In the Baseball Daily Digest roto league, I went to pick up Drew Storen right after I was done watching the Diamondbacks-Phillies game. I was literally seconds too slow as our own Rob McQuown beat me to the punch.

Transaction Action: Send Me Some Angels

34

Christina Kahrl and Kevin Goldstein

Sending Dan Haren back to the AL West has a big impact beyond 2010, while leaving the Snakes dirtbound and dead.

ANAHEIM ANGELS
Team Audit | Player Cards | Depth Chart

Acquired UT-S Alberto Callaspo from the Royals for RHP Sean O'Sullivan and LHP Will Smith. [7/22]
Acquired RHP Dan Haren from the Diamondbacks for LHPs Joe Saunders and Patrick Corbin, RHP Rafael Rodriguez, and a PTBNL. [7/25]
Activated RHP Matt Palmer from the 15-day DL, and optioned him to Salt Lake (Triple-A); optioned RHP Trevor Bell to Salt Lake; purchased the contract of RHP Michael Kohn from Salt Lake. [7/26]

Lima Time as a standard for evaluation, reinforcing the Red Sox, the Tigers slip by an Inge, and more.

Using a pitcher's rate of SNLVAR, Kazmir's season has been a disaster of massive proportions, one that rates about 4.8 on the Keough scale, something that for the moment suits my purposes for describing starting pitcher inadequacy, using Matt Keough's appalling 1982 season as a baseline for starting pitcher-related terrors visited upon a team's unhappy fans over a full season. This isn't really especially fair of me, in that Keough doesn't hold the single-season low for a starter with 30 starts in a campaign, but 1982 was a horrifying disappointment, and the man was beaten with a regularity that made me think that he was the drum, and the entire American League was Keith Moon.

On the Beat: Staying Positive in a Negative Situation

John Perrotto

Astros manager Brad Mills hasn't lost the faith in his rookie season, along with other news and notes from around the majors.

As the Astros prepared to take the field for their first game following the All-Star break, manager Brad Mills looked at freshly-minted hitting coach and franchise legend Jeff Bagwell. Mills had just one thing to say to Bagwell.

The Cubs could use Carlos Zambrano's bat as much as his arm, plus other notes from around the majors.

Lou Piniella had spent the better part of 10 minutes answering questions from the media about the return of Carlos Zambrano to the Cubs' starting rotation and his team's offensive woes when it was jokingly suggested to the veteran manager that perhaps the Big Z's return to the bottom of the batting order might spark a hitting renaissance. After all, Zambrano has a .233/.239/.391 career batting line, which would make him look downright ferocious in a Cubs offense that ranks 13th in the National League with an average of 4.2 runs a game.
