San Diego Padres Sign Infielder

The San Diego Padres have signed Tim Lopes to a minor league deal. 

Lopes has not appeared in the majors since the 2021 season when he was a member of the Milwaukee Brewers, but now he will be aiming to change that with the Padres. In 70 games with Triple-A Albuquerque last season, he had nine home runs, 34 RBIs, and a .271 batting average.

Alas, we will have to wait and see if Lopes can make an impact for the Padres in 2023. At worst, he will simply be a decent depth option for them for when injuries arise.
