Cubs Designate Rodrigo Lopez For Assignment

The Cubs have designated Rodrigo Lopez for assignment, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune tweets. The move creates roster space for recently-acquired right-hander Michael Bowden.

The Cubs signed Lopez to a minor league deal in January and the 36-year-old right-hander made the team out of Spring Training. Lopez appeared in 26 games for the 2011 Cubs, posting a 4.42 ERA with 5.0 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 in 97 2/3 innings as a starter and reliever.
