Drafted in the 5th round (163rd overall) by the Kansas City Royals in 2016 (signed for $243,300)
In a draft thin on college shortstops who can remain at the position as pros, Lopez's athleticism, body control and plus arm should ensure that he gets picked at some point on day two. Lopez has excellent quickness, soft hands, turns double plays well and is especially solid when he's coming in on grounders. A lefthanded-hitting contact hitter with very little power, Lopez puts the ball in play enough to be a bottom-of-the-order regular.
