RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Rafael Lopez.

2015

The 27-year-old Lopez is not a prospect, and he doesn't have a ton of pop, but what he does have is a good batting eye, as evidenced by a 78:93 BB:K ratio in his last two years with Double-A Tennessee. His BB:K ratio declined a bit when he finally reached Triple-A last year, and his stint in the majors was too small to provide any good data points, but if he makes the Cubs as a backup in 2015, he might be able to hit .280 in limited action.
