Arturo Lopez Designated For Assignment, Clears Waivers

FRIDAY, 4:32pm: Rubin reports that Lopez has cleared waivers and will return to Mets' camp as a non-roster invitee.

WEDNESDAY, 3:48pm: The Mets designated lefty Arturo Lopez for assignment to make room for Rod Barajas, tweets Adam Rubin of the New York Daily News.  Lopez, 27, posted a 3.82 ERA, 6.2 K/9, and 3.8 BB/9 while allowing just one home run in 61.3 Triple A innings last year.  The Mets had claimed Lopez off waivers from the Padres in June.

    Good thing they dumped pitching. You can never have enough backup catchers, so valuable

  3. A lefty reliever with above-average AAA numbers? Isn’t that what they’re looking for to compete for the Major League ‘pen?
