BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 Slick infielder Jack Lopez can't hit a lick but his vacuum glove, good range and shortstop's arm make him one of the best defensive second basemen around; when he looks up at his ceiling he sees Darwin Barney. Which is kind of creepy when you start thinking about it. Get down from there, Darwin Barney.
2013 Drafted in the 16th round in 2011 but paid second-round money, Jack Lopez is touted as a strong defender with the ability to make contact at the plate, but he needs to develop a little pop in his bat.
