Felipe LopezBy C. Trent Rosecrans

The same day the Brewers officially placed Rickie Weeks on the disabled list, they added an infielder -- trading for Felipe Lopez of the Rays.

Lopez, a former All-Star, was with the Rays' Triple-A affiliate in Durham and was acquired for cash considerations, the Brewers announced. He will report to Milwaukee's Triple-A team in Nashville.

Lopez played in MIlwaukee at the end of the 2009 season and has played for a total of eight different teams in parts of 10 seasons, but has lasted nowhere more than four seasons. This season he landed in Joe Maddon's doghouse after flipping his bat following a home run and then two weeks later benched him for lack of hustle.

In 32 games for the Rays, he hit .216/.248/.320. At Triple-A Durham, he's hit .305/.357/.474 with seven home runs and 37 RBI.

Lopez will be a stop-gap until Weeks gets back.  After that, he'll be a key pinch hitter off the bench as he's a switch hitter but also has late season experience that we need.  Veteran depth is huge come September.

What happens, then, when Weeks gets back...?

I hope there is enough playing time left for Lopez when Weeks returns, to keep him pacified?  I get a little nervous when we pick-up these players with baggage.  I like Nyjer Morgan, but if he doesn't keep his head screwed-on (ala, at San Francisco) he may end-up costing the Crew games, instead of helping them to win games.

This move is better than nothing as Craig C. is having a tough time getting a hit these days. If Lopez can play like he did in 2009 while with the Brewers, this could turn out to be a good move, otherwise, it may seem like an eternity until Weeks gets back.

Wow what a blockbuster!  Just start the weasel Craig Counsel, otherwise cut his lousy ass. Obviously Brewers aren`t winning a pennant with dog pile moves like this.  Also imagine Joe Maddon`s dog house that goofy glasses fruit.  He`d probably give Filipe the silent treatment or call him pool boy. Suck it DEvil Rays!!!!!

Great move for Brewers...Lopez has talent if motivated; knocking off ST. Louis should be motivation in itself for Loopez who is not a big fan of Tony L. and the red birds..Go Brewers!
