Felipe Lopez Clears Waivers

THURSDAY: Lopez cleared waivers and accepted an assignment at Triple-A, according to Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times.

TUESDAY: The Rays designated infielder Felipe Lopez for assignment to make room on the active roster for Evan Longoria, tweets the Tampa Tribune.

The Rays had signed Lopez to a minor league deal in February, and his contract was purchased on April 3rd when Longoria hit the DL.  Lopez hit .222/.263/.347 in 76 plate appearances and further frustrated the Rays by not running out multiple grounders.  The 30-year-old has been used all over the infield in his 11 big league seasons.
