Cincinnati Reds Re-Sign Switch-Hitting Utility Specialist

They're bringing him back.

The Cincinnati Reds have re-signed utilityman Alejo Lopez to a minor-league contract.

Lopez passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment last week and has decided to return to the Reds on a new minor-league deal.

Lopez posted a respectable .262/.314/.331 triple-slash line, with one home run, 10 RBIs, three stolen bases and 15 runs scored over 59 games. 

The twenty-six-year-old has played just 73 career games in the majors, making his debut in 2021, and he has the ability to play second base, third base and outfield. He's also a switch-hitter. 

Lopez is a former 27th-round pick by the Reds in the 2015 MLB Draft.
