Lopez allowed four runs on eight hits with no walks and three strikeouts across 4.1 innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Friday.
The 23-year-old bounced back from walking four batters in his last outing to handing out zero free passes Friday, but the eight hits he yielded led to a fourth straight no-decision. In his last seven outings of the year, which came after he returned from the injured list Aug. 26, Lopez went 0-3 with a 7.01 ERA. He finished the season 5-8 with a 5.09 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 95 strikeouts in 111.1 innings.
Lopez allowed three runs on six hits and had four walks to go with a strikeout over five innings during Sunday's victory over the Nationals. Lopez did not factor into the decision for a third straight outing.
This was a nice bounce-back game for Lopez after he gave up six runs and lasted just three innings against the Nationals back on Aug. 31. Lopez has been much better at home this season with a lower ERA, WHIP, BB/9 and HR/9 along with a higher K/9. The right-hander now owns a 4.96 ERA along with a 93:31 K:BB across 112 innings. He lines up to take the mound one last time this season against the Phillies on Friday.
Lopez didn't factor into the decision against the Diamondbacks on Monday, giving up three earned runs on five hits over six innings, striking out six and walking none as the Marlins eventually lost 7-5.
The right-hander logged a quality start, but it wasn't quite enough to get him his sixth win. Still, it was a nice rebound effort after he gave up five earned in five innings to the Brewers in his last start. Lopez's 4.94 ERA is still bloated, but he's managed to provide solid numbers in other categories over his 19 starts, with a 1.18 WHIP and 91 strikeouts across 102 innings.
Lopez allowed five runs on five hits and four walks across five innings during Wednesday's loss to the Brewers. He had two strikeouts and did not factor in the decision.
Lopez struggled with his command Wednesday as he delivered only 44 of his 84 pitches for strikes on his way to issuing a season-high four walks. The 23-year-old has a 4.97 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 85:23 K:BB through 96 innings and lines up to pitch Monday at Arizona.
Lopez (5-8) was saddled with the loss Friday against the Royals despite allowing just two runs in 6.1 innings, striking out six and walking none while giving up eight hits.
Lopez was generally able to stay out of trouble despite a fairly high hit total, with three double plays keeping the damage down. He allowed one run on a Whit Merrifield single in the third and another on Ryan O'Hearn double in the seventh but was able to keep his team within striking distance. The start was a nice rebound after he'd allowed 10 runs in eight innings over his previous two appearances.
Lopez (5-7) took the loss Saturday at Washington after surrendering six runs on six hits over three innings. He struck out one and did not walk a batter.
Lopez served up back-to-back homers to Anthony Rendon and Juan Soto during the first inning, which set the tone for the following two frames. The 23-year-old has a 4.89 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 77:19 K:BB this season but has a more favorable matchup against the Royals on Friday.
Lopez (5-6) gave up four runs on five hits and one walk while striking out three through five innings to take the loss against the Reds on Monday.
Making his first start since June 15, Lopez only threw 86 pitches and allowed a three-run home run that was enough to tag him with his sixth loss. The 23-year-old has a 4.41 ERA and 76 strikeouts through 15 starts this season. Lopez is scheduled to make his next start Saturday at Nationals Park.
The Marlins reinstated Lopez (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Monday against the Reds, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Lopez will take the hill for Miami for the first time in the second half after a strained right shoulder kept him on the shelf for more than two months. The 23-year-old wrapped up his five-start rehab assignment on a positive note, tossing six frames and giving up two runs (one earned) while striking out five in his Aug. 21 outing for Triple-A New Orleans. Considering Lopez tossed only 70 pitches in that start, he'll likely have some light workload restrictions in place in his first turn back from the IL.
Lopez (shoulder) will be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Monday against the Reds, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Lopez tossed six innings during his final rehab start Wednesday, clearing the way for his return to the majors. The 23-year-old threw only 70 pitches in that contest, so he'll likely have a limited pitch count in his first major-league start since mid-June.
Lopez (shoulder) is scheduled to throw five innings for Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Lopez has been on the shelf since June 19 with a shoulder strain, and he'll need at least one more rehab outing prior to being activated. He surrendered one run on two hits and three walks while fanning five over 3.1 innings during his last appearance for New Orleans.
Lopez (shoulder) will require at least one more rehab start, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The right-hander made his first rehab start Friday since suffering a setback, but manager Don Mattingly said Lopez will require at least one more start before returning to the major-league club. The 23-year-old has been sidelined since June 19 with a right shoulder strain.
Lopez (shoulder) will start for Triple-A New Orleans on Friday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Lopez was pulled off his last rehab stint after suffering a brief setback, but he'll take the mound again Friday at Triple-A. He's been on the shelf since June 19 with a right shoulder strain, so he may need multiple starts in the minors before being activated.
Lopez (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Tuesday and is close to resuming his rehab assignment, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander got pulled from an assignment at Double-A Jacksonville last Wednesday after coughing up five runs in 2.2 innings, but he's thrown two bullpen sessions since and apparently looked better. "Right now, we're just talking about getting him sharp again," Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. "That's the biggest thing. He's had enough time off, where, coming off the shoulder thing. It's just a matter of getting him back into game mode." Lopez hasn't pitched in the majors since mid-June, and there's still no firm timetable for him to return to the Marlins' rotation.
Lopez (shoulder) will throw one more bullpen session before making a rehab start, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
His recovery hasn't gone as smoothly or as quickly as initially anticipated, but he threw a bullpen session Friday and that apparently went OK. Fernandez only mentions one rehab start for Lopez, but he may need several considering he has been sidelined for almost two months.
Lopez (shoulder) will return to Miami and throw a bullpen session Friday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
He struggled in his three rehab starts, allowing 12 runs on 13 hits and walking four across just five innings. Manager Don Mattingly was hoping that the righty would build up to 100 pitches in his rehab appearances, but the 23-year-old was unable to go deep enough in any outing to approach that number. It is unclear how many additional rehab starts Lopez will require before being activated from the 10-day injured, where he was placed June 19.
Lopez will make his third rehab start Wednesday with Double-A Jacksonville, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
According to Wells Dusenbury of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, manager Don Mattingly said last week that he wants Lopez (shoulder) to build up to 100 pitches in his rehab assignment before the Marlins activate the right-hander from the 10-day injured list. Lopez, who has been on the shelf since June 17 with a right shoulder strain, has already completed two rehab starts, with his most recent one coming Friday with Jacksonville. Lopez only retired two batters -- both via strikeout -- in that start while allowing three runs on two hits and two walks. Since he only covered 30 pitches in that outing, Lopez will presumably need around 2-to-3 more rehab starts until he gets the green light to rejoin the Marlins. Hector Noesi is expected to replace the since-traded Zac Gallen in the Miami rotation this week and should stick as the Marlins' fifth starter while Lopez is on the comeback trail.
Lopez (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment Sunday with Double-A Jacksonville, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Lopez landed on the injured list June 19 with a right shoulder strain but appears to be nearing his return to the majors. The Marlins haven't indicated whether the 23-year-old will require multiple rehab starts, but it wouldn't be surprising given his month-long absence.
Lopez (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Lopez was sent to the injured list with a right shoulder strain, but he's set to throw a side session later in the week. The Marlins have yet to reveal a concrete timetable for his return, though this is certainly a positive sign for the right-hander.
Lopez (shoulder) will begin his throwing program Monday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Lopez was expected to start his throwing progression Saturday but instead had it pushed back by a couple days. The 23-year-old will require some time to build up his arm strength and isn't expected to rejoin the Marlins anytime soon, but it's nonetheless a good sign to see him begin throwing after dealing with the right shoulder strain.
Lopez (shoulder) is scheduled to start a throwing progression Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
This is great news for Lopez, who hit the injured list June 19 with what was diagnosed as a mild shoulder strain. Keep in mind, however, that the full progression takes some time, and the Marlins have reason to slow-play it with a young pitcher who is looking like a big part of their future.
