  • Jorge Lopez Closes Out First Game With Twins

    Minnesota Twins reliever Jorge Lopez recorded his 20th save of the season Wednesday against the Detroit Tigers and his first since being traded from the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday. The first-time All-Star is having a career year after switching to the bullpen this season and owns a 1.64 ERA and 0.95 WHIP with 55 strikeouts over 49.1 innings. The save signals that Lopez will maintain his closer role, leaving the rest of the high-leverage arms in the Twins bullpen, including Jhoan Duran, in a setup role.

  • Twins Acquiring Jorge Lopez From Orioles

    The Minnesota Twins are finalizing a deal to acquire closer Jorge Lopez from the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday in exchange for left-hander Cade Povich, right-handed reliever Yennier Cano and more prospects from the Complex League, according to sources. The Twins had been using a committee approach to the ninth inning this year, but Lopez will presumably step right in as the club's new closer after the trade. The 29-year-old right-hander was excellent with Baltimore this year, posting a 1.68 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP with 19 saves, 54 strikeouts and only 17 walks in 48 1/3 innings. Lopez's fantasy value increases with the deal to the first-place Twins. Back in Baltimore, Felix Bautista should be first in line for save chances with Lopez no longer around.

  • Jorge Lopez Earns 19th Save Of Season Tuesday

    Baltimore Orioles closer Jorge Lopez secured his 19th save of the season in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Rays. Lopez came in to pitch the ninth inning with a two-run lead. He allowed a leadoff single, but then got three outs on two forceouts and a groundout. Lopez and the O's in general have been fantasy surprises this season. He has now converted all but four save opportunities with a 1.55 ERA and a 10.10 K/9 rate. Lopez should continue to be a fantasy asset in all leagues given how well he has pitched, especially if the O's continue to play competitive baseball.

  • Jorge Lopez Records 15th Save

    Baltimore Orioles relief pitcher Jorge Lopez has struggled recently, but stepped up and delivered on Thursday. The 29-year-old worked a scoreless ninth inning in the 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. This outing notched his 15th save of the season and his second save in as many days. Lopez has thrown nearly 60 pitches over the last four days. That being said, it wouldn't be shocking to see the Orioles give him a day off. Possibly, Felix Bautista or Dillon Tate get the ball in the ninth inning on Friday. Fantasy managers should check back before the game starts to see if Lopez is available.

  • Jorge Lopez Notches 14th Save Against Texas

    Baltimore Orioles closer Jorge Lopez picked up his 14th save of the season on Wednesday when he closed the game out against the Texas Rangers. Lopez allowed one hit while walking none and striking out two in his one inning of work. The 29-year-old right-hander had surrendered runs in each of his last three outings in July, including two blown saves, so this was a bounce-back performance for him. It was also Lopez's first save since June 24. Despite his recent struggles, he's sporting a pristine 1.83 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 44 strikeouts and only 15 walks in 39 1/3 innings as Baltimore's go-to ninth-inning arm.

  • Orioles Remain Confident In Jorge Lopez As Closer

    Baltimore Orioles closer Jorge Lopez suffered his third blown save of the year on Friday as he allowed a two-run walk-off home run to Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton. After the game, Lopez expressed disappointment that he allowed the home run -- the first homer he'd allowed over 37 innings this year. However, Orioles manager Brandon Hyde stated that Lopez had nothing to be down about. Hyde praised the work Lopez had done as the team's primary closer this year and specifically said, "We get a save situation, he'll be in there." The 29-year-old veteran has 13 saves on the year to go along with a 1.22 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP. His closer job certainly doesn't appear to be in jeopardy at this point.

  • Jorge Lopez Picks Up 12th Save

    Baltimore Orioles reliever Jorge Lopez picked up a two-out save on Thursday to close out his team's 4-0 win over the White Sox. The 29-year-old entered the frame with runners on first and second, but he was able to strike out both Tim Anderson and Andrew Vaughn on a combined seven pitches to end the contest. It was Lopez's 12th save of the campaign as he's putting together a superb season with a microscopic 0.77 ERA and 0.83 WHIP with 36 punchouts through 35 IP. He's proved to be one of the few bright spots for the O's pitching staff this season, and will keep a stranglehold on the ninth inning job as long as he stays healthy.

  • Jorge Lopez Locks Down His Fifth Save On Monday

    Baltimore Orioles relief pitcher Jorge Lopez closed out the team's 6-4 win over the New York Yankees on Monday to earn his fifth save of the year. He pitched a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one walk and no hits. Lopez blew each of his previous two save opportunities, so it was encouraging to see the team go back to him on Monday. Felix Bautista, who earned a pair of saves while Lopez was on the bereavement list earlier this month, was utilized in the seventh and eighth innings in this game. He's the biggest threat to Lopez's ninth inning role, but it looks as if he'll primarily be a setup man for now.

  • Jorge Lopez Blows Save Opportunity On Thursday

    Baltimore Orioles pitcher Jorge Lopez allowed one run on one hit and two walks while striking out three across one inning during Thursday's 9-6 win over the New York Yankees. He entered the eighth frame to protect a one-run lead. The 29-year-old struck out Aaron Hicks to end the inning. He walked Isiah Kiner-Falefa to start the inning and allowed the tying run on a DJ LeMahieu single. He was charged with his second blown save of the season. The right-hander escaped the loss after the Orioles rallied back in the ninth inning to tack on three runs to win in the game. Lopez is 4-for-6 in save chances as Baltimore's primary closer with a 1.42 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 20 strikeouts over 19 innings in 2022.
