Lopez, 29, enjoyed one of the most Notable Changes in Major League Baseball This season, he’s gone from being a condescending claim to risking losing his spot on Baltimore’s roster for most of last season to a first-time All-Star player making his way into the game’s elite ranks Has. The previous and potentially best second-round pick as captain didn’t start initially but has been fantastic since joining the Bulls on a full-time basis late last season. So far in 2022, Lopez has pitched 48 innings with a 1.68 ERA rate, a 27.6% batting rate, an 8.7% walk rate and a whopping 60% baseball average, placing him among the MLB runners ranks fifth in baseball.
While it’s a short taste, Lopez’s move to The Pen last August heralded the breakthrough to come. He began to heavily favor his diver over his four stitchers and watched both his ball rate and speed increase dramatically and threw 8 1/3 innings with only two rounds, a 10 to 2 K/BB ratio and one Hit rate of 66.7 percent. Since switching to the bullpen last year, Lopez has had a 1.75 ERA, a 27.9% shot rate, an 8.3% gait rate, a greater average of 61%, and an average speed of 98 mph on a sinker.
The twins are clearly confident in his ability to sustain this new production, which adds to his appeal from the fact that Lopez was in control for the entire 2024 season. Also, he had $1.5 million to spend this year, so it’s unlikely to affect his paycheck for 2022. And it won’t break the bank in either 2023 or 2024.

Like Doran and Jax, Lopez gives manager Rocco Baldeli the flexibility of knowing he can take on more than one role if needed. In 11 of the 44 games Lopez played this season, he has scored at least four goals.
more is coming.
