Rockies Acquire Rodrigo Lopez

I apologize for being late with this one; my blogging service was down last night.  Yesterday the Rockies snagged 31 year-old righthander Rodrigo Lopez in a trade with the O’s.

The move pushes Jason Hirsh and Taylor Buchholz out of rotation spots. The pair of former Astros will certainly get some starts, as Byung-Hyun Kim and Josh Fogg aren’t 200 inning guys.

Not sure if Colorado will work out, but Lopez has been needing a move to the NL for a while now.  He can probably up his K rate and cut his walks in this league.
