6) BlueJays CF Vernon Wells hit 2 HR.

After 32 RCAA/.909 OPS and -1 RCAA/.809 OPS seasons, Wells is off to a .442 SLG, .292 OBA, .733 OPS, -6 RCAA in his first 51 games. He has a .812 career OPS, compared to his league average of .763, and 16 RCAA in 562 games.

7) Tigers C Ivan Rodriguez has a fracture in his right hand, but says he expects to continue to play.

Rodriguez was hit around the bottom of his thumb, near the palm, by a foul ball yesterday. After 17 RCAA/.843 OPS and 29 RCAA/.893 OPS seasons, Rodriguez is off to a .433 SLG, .294 OBA, .727 OPS, -4 RCAA start in his first 45 games. He has a .834 career OPS, compared to his league average of .767, and 108 RCAA in 1803 games.

Correction and addition from yesterday–Dioner Navarro hasn’t made his 2005 debut yet, but was 3 for 7 in 5 games with the 2004 Yankees.

Roger Clemens is also 3rd on the BlueJays career RSAA list–

RSAA  
1    Dave Stieb                  240

10   Duane Ward                   62

1) The Indians activated RF Juan Gonzalez from the DL and designated OF Ryan Ludwick for assignment.

On his first AB of the season, Gonzalez reaggravated his hamstring injury and is probably going right on the DL.

Ludwick has -9 RCAA/.716 OPS in 104 career games, including a .512 SLG, .333 OBA, .846 OPS, 1 RCAA in 19 games in 2005.

2) Redsox CF Johnny Damon had to leave yesterday’s game, a half inning after colliding with the OF wall. He had scratches and bruises and needed stitches, but had no signs of a concussion.

After 2 RCAA/.750 OPS and 25 RCAA/.857 OPS seasons, Damon is hitting .457 SLG, .404 OBA, .861 OPS, 15 RCAA in his first 49 games. He has a .784 career OPS, compared to his league average of .774, and 87 RCAA in 1456 games.

3) The Tigers sent 1B Carlos Pena to the minors and called up 1B Chris Shelton.

After 3 RCAA/.772 OPS and 7 RCAA/.810 OPS seasons, Pena is hitting .283 SLG, .307 OBA, .590 OPS, -7 RCAA in his first 41 games. He has a .771 career OPS, compared to his league average of .763, and 5 RCAA in 451 games.

Shelton has -2 RCAA/.628 OPS in 28 career games, including 1 for 3, with a 2B and 1 RCAA, in 1 game in 2005.

4) The Royals called up OF Shane Costa and designated OF Eli Marrero for assignment.

After -6 RCAA/.622 OPS and 14 RCAA/.894 OPS seasons, Marrero is off to a .341 SLG, .222 OBA, .563 OPS, -6 RCAA start in his first 32 games. He has a .709 career OPS, compared to his league average of .775, and -47 RCAA in 647 games.

5) The Angels called up 1B Casey Kotchman and placed OF Curtis Pride on the 15 day DL.

After starting his career with a .276 SLG, .289 OBA, .565 OPS, -8 RCAA in 38 games in 2004, Kotchman, who is regarded as a top prospect, was 0 for 4 in his 2005 debut.

Pride has a wrist injury. Pride has -12 RCAA/.735 OPS in 391 career games, including 1 for 5, with a 2B and -1 RCAA, in 3 games in 2005.

6) The Angels will activate P Francisco Rodriguez from the DL today.

After 3.03 ERA/11 RSAA and 1.82 ERA/26 RSAA seasons, Rodriguez is off to a 2.25 ERA/4 RSAA start in his first 14 games. He has a 2.35 career ERA, compared to his league average of 4.56, and 44 RSAA in 147 games.

7) The Twins called up INF Brent Abernathy and OF Michael Ryan, sent INF Terry Tiffee to the minors and placed 2B Luis Rivas on the 15 day DL.

Abernathy, who hasn’t appeared in the majors since 2003, has -37 RCAA/.623 OPS in 208 career games.

Ryan has 2 RCAA/.813 OPS in 70 career games.

Tiffee has -7 RCAA/.684 OPS in 39 career games, including a .322 SLG, .250 OBA, .572 OPS, -7 RCAA in 22 games in 2005.

Rivas has a strained back. After -23 RCAA/.689 OPS and -11 RCAA/.715 OPS seasons, Rivas is off to a .203 SLG, .253 OBA, .456 OPS, -6 RCAA start in his first 32 games. He has a .686 career OPS, compared to his league average of .764, and -74 RCAA in 538 games.

8) Yankees P Paul Quantrill (3 games) and manager Joe Torre (1 game) were suspended after Quantrill threw at Tigers INF Jason Smith last week.

Quantrill is taking the unusual step of not appealing and started serving his suspension yesterday. After 1.75 ERA/19 RSAA and 4.72 ERA/-3 RSAA seasons, he is off to a 6.53 ERA/-6 RSAA start in his first 15 games. Quantrill has a 3.79 career ERA, compared to his league average of 4.49, and 105 RSAA in 806 games.

Torre served his suspension yesterday.

9) The Mariners called up SS Mike Morse and designated SS Wilson Valdez for assignment.

Morse was 0 for 1, with a BB, in his major league debut.

Wilson has -15 RCAA/.515 OPS in 61 career games, including a .254 SLG, .235 OBA, .489 OPS, -10 RCAA in 42 games in 2005.

10) The Astros sent P Ezequiel Astacio to the minors and called up INF Chris Burke.

Astacio has a 10.98 ERA/-14 RSAA in his first 4 career starts (6 games).

Burke has -7 RCAA/.440 OPS in 36 career games, including a .244 SLG, .265 OBA, .510 OPS, -4 RCAA in 19 games in 2005.

11) The Nationals placed P Zach Day on the 15 day DL, retroactive to May 26.

Day has a broken right wrist. He had been sent to the minors last week, but the move was voided as a result of the injury. Nationals GM Jim Bowden said the team was close to trading Day before the injury was uncovered.

Bowden also says, “I believe in Zach Day.” So, he believes in him enough to trade him. And, given what Day’s market value has to be, it can’t be a case of believing in a player, but having to deal him because you could still get more back than him.

12) The Braves designated RF Raul Mondesi for assignment when they activated P Mike Hampton from the DL.

Hampton had to leave after 4 innings, due to tightness in his arm. After 3.84 ERA/7 RSAA and 4.28 ERA/0 RSAA seasons, Hampton is off to a 1.83 ERA/16 RSAA start in his first 9 starts. He has a 3.93 career ERA, compared to his league average of 4.32, and 95 RSAA in 372 games.
13) The Reds released P Danny Graves.

14) A MRI on Dodgers CF Milton Bradley shows he has a slight ligament tear in his right ring finger and manager Jim Tracy says he’ll be out until at least Friday.

After 34 RCAA/.923 OPS and 3 RCAA/.786 OPS seasons, Bradley is hitting .511 SLG, .345 OBA, .855 OPS, 9 RCAA in his first 48 games. He has a .752 career OPS, compared to his league average of .772, and 5 RCAA in 530 games.

15) Phillies C Mike Lieberthal caught in his 1000th game.

After 18 RCAA/.825 OPS and -6 RCAA/.783 OPS seasons, Lieberthal is off to a .409 SLG, .336 OBA, .745 OPS, -2 RCAA start in his first 38 games. He has a .790 career OPS, compared to his league average of .775, and 4 RCAA in 1027 games.

16) Phillies GM Ed Wade is denying a rumor that Billy Wagner will go on the trading block if the team is out of contention.

After 1.78 ERA/26 RSAA and 2.42 ERA/10 RSAA seasons, Wagner is off to a 2.78 ERA/4 RSAA start in his first 21 games. He has a 2.53 career ERA, compared to his league average of 4.31, and 113 RSAA in 530 games.

17) The Rockies moved P Matt Merricks from the 15 to the 60 day DL.

18) The Redsox sent C Shawn Wooten to the minors after he cleared waivers.

Wooten had been removed from the 25 and 40 man rosters when he was designated for assignment last week.

19) The Cubs will call up P John Koronka.

Koronka will make his major league debut by starting tonight.

20) Redsox P Wade Miller’s line–7 IP, 5 H, 1 R/ER, 3 BB, 3 SO.

After 4.13 ERA/7 RSAA and 3.35 ERA/10 RSAA seasons, Miller is off to a 4.85 ERA/-1 RSAA start in his first 5 starts. He has a 3.90 career ERA, compared to his league average of 4.32, and 55 RSAA in 132 games.

4) Rangers 1B Mark Teixeira had 3 hits, including a 2B and a 3B.

After starting his career with -4 RCAA/.811 OPS and 30 RCAA/.929 OPS seasons, Teixeira is hitting .548 SLG, .350 OBA, .898 OPS, 10 RCAA in his first 50 games. He has a .876 career OPS, compared to his league average of .764, and 36 RCAA in 341 games.
