PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Phillies may have their 8th inning guy.
CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the Phillies have an agreement in place with the Astros to acquire right-handed pitcher Wilton Lopez for “minor leaguers,” and they’re finalizing the deal now.
Lopez, 29 years-old, appeared in 64 games for the Astros last season, had ten saves and finished with a record of 6-3. He struck out 54 batters in 66.1 innings, and had a WHIP 1.040.
