  • Braves' Alejo Lopez: Falls short of Opening Day roster

    Atlanta reassigned Lopez to minor-league camp March 5.

    Lopez didn't make much of a push for a spot on the Opening Day roster, as Atlanta had several other players with prior MLB experience competing with him for a utility role. The 27-year-old switch hitter, who appeared in 76 big-league games with the Reds over the past three seasons, is expected to report to Triple-A Gwinnett to begin the 2024 campaign.

  • Braves' Alejo Lopez: Gets minors deal from Atlanta

    Lopez signed a minor-league contract with Atlanta on Saturday.

    Lopez elected free agency after being removed from the Reds' 40-man roster earlier this month but has quickly caught on in another organization. He'll likely be in Atlanta's major-league camp during spring training as a non-roster invitee.

  • Alejo Lopez: Becomes free agent

    Lopez elected free agency Tuesday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Lopez appeared in just one game in the majors this season, going 1-for-2 with an RBI and a run scored on Sept. 9 against St. Louis. Otherwise, he spent all season with Triple-A Louisville and slashed .292/.401/.408 with 43 RBI across 556 plate appearances. Lopez's solid stat line gives him a good chance to latch on with another franchise.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Starts for scratched Marte

    Lopez was a late addition to Saturday's starting lineup at second base after Noelvi Marte was scratched with a facial contusion. Lopez went 1-for-2 with an RBI and was ejected for arguing a called third strike.

    Lopez made an immediate impact, preventing a run with a nice diving stop for the third out of the second inning. He then doubled home a run in the bottom half of the frame. He was later ejected along with manager David Bell in the fourth inning for arguing called strikes. Lopez joined the major-league club Saturday amid the Reds' COVID-19 outbreak.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Returns to Triple-A

    The Reds returned Lopez to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

    The 27-year-old was temporarily added to Cincinnati's 26-man and 40-man rosters Friday when Stuart Fairchild (illness) landed on the COVID-19 injured list, and Lopez will return to the minors after going 1-for-2 with a double, an RBI and a run in his lone appearance. Since Lopez is not on the 40-man roster, he's not a likely bet to receive another chance in the big leagues this season.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Joins major-league squad

    The Reds added Lopez to the active roster as Stuart Fairchild's (illness) replacement Saturday.

    With Fairchild headed for the COVID-19 injured list, Lopez will fill in as a depth piece for the Reds while Fairchild is out. Lopez is slashing .279/.386/.396 across 497 plate appearances in Triple-A this season, and he is unlikely to see many opportunities while with Cincinnati.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Lopez cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.

    After being DFA'd to clear room for Harrison Bader and Hunter Renfroe on Thursday, Lopez will remain in Louisville without the benefit of a spot on the 40-man roster. He's currently slashing .282/.390/.401 across 480 plate appearances in Triple-A.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Designated for assignment

    Lopez was designated for assignment by the Reds on Thursday.

    Lopez was just called up Tuesday, but the Reds needed to clear out 40-man roster space after claiming Harrison Bader and Hunter Renfroe ahead of Thursday's waiver deadline. Mike Siani has also been designated for assignment.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Selected to MLB roster

    Cincinnati selected Lopez's contract from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

    Lopez is up in the majors for the first time this season after posting a .282/.390/.404 batting line with seven homers and 15 steals across 108 games for Louisville. The 27-year-old can serve as depth at a variety of positions as the Reds try to navigate around several key injuries.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Sent to minor-league camp

    The Reds reassigned Lopez to minor-league camp Monday.

    Lopez was removed from the 40-man roster prior to camp and failed to make the team as a non-roster invitee. He'll represent utility depth at Triple-A Louisville.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Lopez cleared waivers and was outrighted Tuesday to Triple-A Louisville, reports Charlie Goldsmith of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

    Lopez was designated for assignment last week to clear out a 40-man roster spot for outfielder Will Benson, who was acquired via trade from the Guardians. Lopez will be on the MLB side of Reds camp this spring as a non-roster invitee.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Pushed off 40-man roster

    Lopez was designated for assignment by the Reds on Wednesday.

    This move opens up a 40-man roster spot for Will Benson, who was just acquired via trade from the Guardians. Lopez has shown a good amount of defensive versatility, but the 26-year-old owns a career .262/.307/.321 batting line with only one home run in 179 total major-league plate appearances.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Back in bench role

    Lopez is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates.

    Lopez went 4-for-19 with an RBI and a run while starting in each of the past five games at either designated hitter, left field, second base or third base. He likely won't have a direct path to any one spot in the lineup over the final week and a half over the season, but he could continue to see steady at-bats nonetheless in his super-utility role.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Career day at dish

    Lopez went 3-for-3 with a home run, one double, three RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

    Lopez reached base in all four at-bats, including his first career home run, a 400-foot shot to right field in the seventh inning. Additionally, his three runs and three RBI on the day were both career highs. Despite the strong showing, the 26-year-old is unlikely to earn regular at-bats as Cincinnati has a crowded infield.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Swipes bag in win

    Lopez went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base and two runs scored in a 10-0 win over the Rockies in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader.

    Lopez had sat out three straight games entering this contest, where he got the start at second base. The 26-year-old was able to supply an RBI on a fielder's choice and score in the sixth inning after singling, stealing third and scoring in the Reds' five-run fourth. His playing time is likely to remain limited when Jonathan India (knee) is available. Lopez is nonetheless slashing .301/.363/.344 with no home runs, three steals, four RBI and 10 runs scored through 102 plate appearances this year.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Awarded second straight start

    Lopez will start at second base and bat fifth in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

    After going 3-for-3 with a run scored while filling in on the left side of the infield for Jose Barrero in Tuesday's 5-1 win, Lopez will shift over to the other side of the diamond for the series finale. Lopez still looks to be stuck in a reserve role for now, but if his performance warrants more opportunities, the Reds could create room for him in the lineup by installing Donovan Solano as their full-time first baseman while rotating their other regulars in the infield at the designated-hitter spot.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Gets call to majors

    The Reds recalled Lopez from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

    Though Lopez will join the big club with Mike Moustakas (calf) heading to the injured list in a corresponding move, it's Donovan Solano that should be the first in line to replace Moustakas as the Reds' everyday designated hitter. Lopez, who has seen action at three infield spots in addition to the corner-outfield spots at Triple-A this season, is expected to join Matt Reynolds as a utility option off the Cincinnati bench.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Optioned to Louisville

    Lopez was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Lopez wasn't part of the Reds' Opening Day roster but has already been recalled and optioned three times apiece. His latest stint on the active roster lasted over a month and saw him hit .238/.333/.286 in 23 games.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Added to Wednesday's lineup

    Lopez was added to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The 26-year-old was initially slated to be out of the lineup for the fourth time in the last five games, but he'll join the starting nine after Brandon Drury (Achilles) was scratched just under an hour before the scheduled first pitch. Lopez will start at the keystone and bat second Wednesday.

  • Reds' Alejo Lopez: Rejoins big club

    The Reds recalled Lopez from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

    Lopez is eligible to rejoin the Reds just two days after being optioned since Cincinnati placed Joey Votto (illness) on the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move. The 25-year-old is expected to be ticketed for a depth role, though it's possible the Reds give him another look as the everyday second baseman after Jonathan India (hamstring) was moved back to the injured list Sunday.
