BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2000 Lopez was overmatched in his first major-league opportunity in 1998, but returned to Triple-A last year and was much improved, adding power to his game. As an adequate shortstop who is considered an outstanding third baseman, Lopez was on his way to winning at least a bench job for 2000 when an Aaron Sele pitch fractured his ulna and ended his season. He should be healthy, and is capable of making a contribution if he gets the opportunity.
1999 Won the shortstop job by default, and did nothing to lose it to what little competition he had. He hasn’t shown he can hit even AA pitching successfully, but his defense and little-ball skills put him and Halter squarely at odds with each other. The similarity of their performance last year is eerie, if inconsequential; Lopez had 2 more at-bats, 5 more hits, one fewer extra-base hit, the same number of walks, and 2 more strikeouts. Neither Lopez nor Halter are considered standouts defensively, but they both had amazing defensive numbers - each had a range factor that would have led the league if they played enough to qualify. Lopez is a tiny bit better than Halter in every manner, and should have the upper hand this spring.
1997 A fine prospect. Lopez jumped from rookie ball, where he hit .362 in 1994, to AA in little over a year. He was voted the best defensive third baseman in the Texas League, and his range factor was off the charts. His patience improved as the season went on before a broken finger ended it. The Royals have so many third basemen (Randa, Paquette) to sort through that Lopez shouldn’t see playing time before mid-1998, but he could be a good one when he arrives.
