Rocked for seven runs Thursday

September 20, 2018
Lopez (2-5) suffered the loss against the Tigers on Thursday, allowing seven earned runs and eight hits in one innings. He didn't allow a walk or record a strikeout.
ANALYSIS
Lopez left his previous start early due to injury, and he left Thursday's contest early due to poor performance. He allowed three home runs and wasn't able to record an out in the second inning before being pulled from the game. His ERA ballooned to 5.03 after the rough outing, and he'll look to bounce back in his next scheduled start, which is currently slated for Thursday against the Indians.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Lopez was unable to capitalize on an excellent 2015 that included his major league debut at just 22 years old. He was eaten alive at Triple-A Colorado Springs -- a fate many a minor league arm has suffered -- as he served up 101 hits in 79.1 innings and a brutal 6.81 ERA in 16 starts. In July, the Brewers mercifully demoted Lopez back to Double-A, where he found more success but continued to struggle with control and posted a 3.97 ERA, nearly a half run higher than his 2015 mark. Lopez has shown mid-rotation upside, but last year, the inconsistency in his command that had many doubting him in the past defined his campaign. Lopez is just 24, but he needs to turn things around sooner rather than later.
Lopez earned a couple of spot starts and was hit around a bit (14 hits in 10 innings) but struck out 10 batters and managed to hang around for five innings in each start. He was just 22, and he dominated the Double-A Southern League in 24 starts, posting a 2.26 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 143.1 innings despite being two years younger than his average opponent. Lopez may not make Milwaukee's rotation out of spring training, but he will be on the short list of replacements should the Brewers need another starter due to injury or ineffectiveness. That's a pretty good bet, considering that the team used 11 different starting pitchers in 2015. Lopez struck out 137 batters (8.7 K/9) in Double-A last year, and he has the stuff to compete. The next step will be tightening the control, as he posted a 3.3 BB/9 with Biloxi in 2015.
