Yoan Lopez with Diamondbacks

Yoan Lopez with Diamondbacks

The Mets claimed RHP Yoan Lopez off waivers from Miami and optioned him to Triple-A Syracuse.

Lopez has appeared in 113 big league games, all with the Arizona Diamondbacks, from 2018-2021. With the D-Backs, he owned a 4.25 ERA (48 earned runs/101.2 innings). He only pitched in 13 games last year, as he was designated for assignment and traded to the Atlanta Braves after allowing nine earned runs in 12.1 inning (6.57 ERA).

After that trade, Lopez spent the rest of the year with Triple-A Gwinnett, where he pitched to a 3.05 ERA. He was DFA’d by Atlanta in November, and was claimed and released by the Philadelphia Phillies and Marlins this offseason.

To make room for Lopez on the 40-man roster, the Mets placed LHP Joey Lucchesi on the 60-Day Injured List, as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.
