The nation's saves leader with 19 in 2012, Lopez attacks hitters with a lively fastball. He sits 91-92 mph and touches 93-94 with the pitch, which he throws 90 percent of the time. Lopez has some deception in his delivery and showed his toughness in 2011, finishing the season with a torn ACL in his knee. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder has thrown a slider and changeup in the past; his change was the better pitch coming out of high school while the slider is better now. He throws his secondary stuff so infrequently, he's lost the feel for both.
