Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 50 | Slider: 50 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 60 | Overall: 45

Signed for $280,000 in 2012, Lopez made his professional debut the next year with promising results, only to miss all of '14 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Despite the year off, Lopez returned to the mound with a strong showing in the Rookie-level Arizona League, and then was even more impressive during his full-season debut at Class A Clinton. A move up to the hitter-friendly California League in 2017 resulted in some early struggles for Lopez, but the right-hander made noticeable strides in each month before being dealt to the Marlins in July in the David Phelps trade. Miami added Lopez to its 40-man roster after the season, and he made his big league debut the following June after stops at the Double- and Triple-A levels.

Lopez lacks a plus offering but has proven effective with an average three-pitch mix for which he shows excellent feel as well as present command. His fastball sits in the low 90s with good sinking action that generates a plethora of weak ground balls. He keeps hitters off balance by effectively mixing his heater with a slider and a changeup, both of which receives average grades from evaluators.

Lopez's pitchability is driven by plus command that resulted in 1.2 walks-per-nine in 333 2/3 career innings entering the 2018 season. That, along with his potential for improved stuff as he matures, give the right-hander a chance to stick as a back-end starter in the big leagues.
