RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Yoan Lopez.
Arizona forked over an $8.27 million signing bonus before the 2015 season to nab Lopez —a record bonus for an international amateur. However, Lopez’s debut season was a disappointment. Injuries limited him to just 48 innings with Double-A Mobile, where he went 1-6 with a 5.06 ERA and 32 strikeouts. Lopez also missed a team bus and went AWOL for a few days in July, which raised concerns about his makeup. He can hit the mid-90s with his fastball, and he also mixes in a slider and changeup. But like with many young pitchers, control is still an issue for Lopez, evidenced by his 4.5 BB/9 in 2015. The potential for a mid-rotation arm is certainly there, based on his physical traits. However, his control and makeup concerns could lead to him being a reliever long term.
Lopez is a Cuba defector who had a 3.12 ERA with a 28:11 K:BB ratio in 49 innings in 2013-14 for Isla de la Juventud in the Serie Nacional, Cuba's top professional league. He hit 100 mph on the radar gun in some workouts for scouts and is seen having a mid-90s fastball. He'll likely sign with a MLB team at some point in 2015 and it may not take long before he's ready for the majors.
