The Rockies had high hopes for 30-year old righty reliever Wilton Lopez when they acquired him in a deal with the Astros last winter. But, he has had issues this year and he hasn’t been trusted in high leverage situations. Lopez has pitched in 65 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2-4 with a 4.18 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. He has given up 75 hits and 16 walks while whiffing 42 batters in his first 64 2/3 innings this year. Lopez has now pitched in 278 games (0 starts) in his first five years in the majors and he is 15-17 with 11 saves, a 3.37 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. The Rockies hope that Lopez can get his act together in September.
