Report: Phillies Trade For Wilton Lopez Falls Apart

By Spike Eskin

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A deal the Phillies had in place for Astros reliever Wilton Lopez is no longer likely, according to MLB.COM’s Todd Zolecki.

Lopez hit the disabled list twice in the previous two seasons with elbow injuries. He figured to be the eight inning reliever for the Phillies.
