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.
