MLB Rumors: 3 Frontrunners Emerge in Pablo Lopez Sweepstakes

Pablo Lopez is one of the top pitchers currently being shopped, and it seems likely that the Miami Marlins will find him a new home shortly. Interest in his services is skyrocketing at the moment as MLB insider Jon Heyman has reported that the St. Louis Cardinals, Minnesota Twins, and Colorado Rockies are the three frontrunners in the sweepstakes.

It is not surprising to hear that these three teams are making a push to acquire Lopez, as they all can use a boost when it comes to their rotations. Lopez would provide them with just that, as he is a very effective starter while he is pitching at his best. With that, he is also under team control, so he would be more than just a rental if acquired.

At the time of this writing, it appears that we have a three-team race for Lopez’s services. Let’s see who ends up being the lucky club to acquire him from here.
