Jorge Lopez heading back to Biloxi


At the end of last season, Jorge Lopez was a rising star in the Brewers system. That changed when he hit Colorado Springs this year and his stats took a nosedive. Through 17 appearances (16 starts) for the Sky Sox, Lopez recorded a 6.81 ERA and 6.35 FIP, with his walk rate also jumping to 6.24 BB/9. After allowing at least six earned runs in three of his last five starts, the Brewers have decided to send him back to Biloxi for now. He posted a 2.26 ERA and 3.36 FIP in Biloxi last season., so hopefully the return to a friendlier environment will be good for Lopez.
