Brewers Land Felipe Lopez
By Drew Silva [July 19 at 4:59pm CST]
According to B.J. Rains of MLB.com, the Diamondbacks have dealt Felipe Lopez to the Brewers for two minor-leaugers: outfielder Cole Gillespie and pitcher Roque Mercedes.

Lopez, batting .301/.364/.412 with six home runs, 25 RBI and six stolen bases, should help shore up the top of Milwaukee's lineup. The utilityman is playing mostly second base these days, and should easily usurp the 38-year-old Craig Counsell of his starting duties.

Mercedes, 22, was 1-1 with a 1.08 ERA in 29 relief appearances this season while playing in the Florida State League. Gillespie, a 25-year-old stuck at the Triple-A level, was batting .242 with seven home runs and 27 RBI
for Nashville. It's a decent haul for an Arizona ballclub that continues to fall back in the NL West standings.


Should further increase his fantasy value in a better lineup, especially in the leagues where he qualifies @ 2B/SS/3B/OF

Makes sense on both sides of the ball to me. Looks like a decent trade for the Brewers since they think they can compete

What does that do for those of us that have McGehee? Will he still play or is time to find a replacement?

Not exactly Ken Macha's favorite thing to do. Although Braun and Hart seem to be running a bit more lately...

I think his value goes down. He's leaving a hitters park and moving into a neutral park. His home/away splits from this season shows that he was significantly better at Chase Field

I read in another story he should get a decent amount of time at 3B, dont have the exact article though
