  • Pablo Lopez Looks To Build On Strong Start

    Headshot for Pablo Lopez

    Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Pablo Lopez is off to a nice start this year, and he'll have a good chance to build on his early-season success during Thursday's start on the road against the division-rival Detroit Tigers. Lopez may have given up 11 runs in 14 innings during spring training, but he takes a strong 2.84 ERA (3.07 FIP), 0.86 WHIP, and 9:1 K:BB over 12 2/3 regular-season frames into Thursday's outing. Across 13 innings (two starts) against Detroit last season, the 28-year-old Venezuelan right-hander compiled a 2.08 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 18:1 K:BB. The current Tigers roster also combines for a career .199 xwOBA through 65 plate appearances versus Lopez, according to Statcast. Lopez is one of the top fantasy bets on Thursday's modest seven-game slate.

  • Pablo Lopez Shows Out In Opener

    Headshot for Pablo Lopez

    Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Pablo Lopez threw seven one-run innings in a 4-1 win over the Kansas City Royals. Lopez was brilliant in this one, allowing just four hits while striking out seven and walking none. The only damage against him was a leadoff homer from Maikel Garcia, after which he was nearly perfect. This is just another reminder that you have to take Spring Training numbers with a grain of salt, as Lopez had a pretty brutal spring with a 7.07 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. He should be a fantasy ace as long as he can remain healthy.

  • Pablo Lopez Posting Poor Spring Numbers

    Headshot for Pablo Lopez

    Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Pablo Lopez has not looked like the ace-tier fantasy option fantasy managers are hoping for this spring. The 28-year-old has gone 0-2 with a 7.07 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 14 strikeouts in 14 innings pitched. While this is not encouraging for fantasy managers, they should remember that spring samples are small and that established players like Lopez may use the time to work on aspects of their game without concern for results. Lopez should still be considered a high-end fantasy option, as he had a solid 3.66 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 29.2% strikeout rate in 32 starts and 194 IP in 2023.

  • Pablo Lopez, Jhoan Duran Beat Up Wednesday

    Headshot for Jhoan Duran

    Minnesota Twins Opening Day starter Pablo Lopez and closer Jhoan Duran were beat up in the team's 12-3 Grapefruit League loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday. In total, Twins pitchers allowed 17 hits. Lopez, who struck out two and gave up three hits in his two innings of work, surrendered a two-run homer to infielder Ramon Urias. Fantasy managers should take spring results with a grain of salt. Duran, a 26-year-old Dominican reliever, saved a career-high 27 games for the Twins in 2023 and has been excellent in his two seasons in Minnesota, sporting a 2.15 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, 35 saves, 41 walks and 173 K's in 130 relief innings. He's also one of the league's hardest throwers, as he led baseball with 473 pitches thrown at or above 100 mph. Not only does Duran strike out a lot of hitters, but he also keeps the ball on the ground. He is RotoBaller's fourth-ranked fantasy closer.
