Rockies Closing In On Acquiring Wilton Lopez

9:11pm: The Rockies are closing in on acquiring Lopez, tweets Renck.  Colorado would look to send two young pitchers to Houston.

9:05pm: The Rockies continue seeking relief help and have talked with the Astros about Wilton Lopez, tweets Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post.  Questions exist regarding Lopez's health, as the 29-year-old very nearly joined the Phillies last month before they called it off.  Lopez, who is arbitration eligible for the first time in 2013, posted a 2.17 ERA, 7.3 K/9, 1.1 BB/9, 0.54 HR/9, and 55% groundball rate in 66 1/3 innings this year.

The Rockies have been in active trade discussions for pitching at the Winter Meetings, tweeted Renck.  The Rockies appear to want the best of both worlds in their relief hunt: a late-inning guy capable of throwing multiple innings.
