Braves Looking To Trade Rodrigo Lopez

The Braves are "looking to make a deal involving Rodrigo Lopez," tweets ESPN's Buster Olney.  The news comes as no surprise; MLBTR's Ben Nicholson-Smith highlighted Atlanta's rotation surplus yesterday.

Lopez, 35, posted a 5.00 ERA, 5.2 K/9, 2.5 BB/9, 1.7 HR/9, and 37.6% groundball rate in 200 innings for the Diamondbacks last year before signing a minor league deal with the Braves.  He's been pretty good in 13 2/3 spring innings this year.  The Braves would likely seek a modest return.
