Lopez designated for assignment to make room for Bard


The Boston Herald is reporting that the Red Sox have designated relief pitcher Javier Lopez for assignment, making room on the 25-man and 40-man rosters for Pawtucket closer Daniel Bard's promotion to Boston. Lopez has had a difficult start to 2009, posting an 0-2 record with a 9.26 ERA in 14 appearances out of the Boston bullpen. He struck out 5 and walked 9 in 11.2 innings, allowing a .392 batting average to opposing hitters. Originally a fourth-round draft pick by Arizona in 1998, Lopez was acquired by the Red Sox in June, 2006 from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for David Riske. During his seven major league seasons with Colorado, Arizona and Boston, Lopez owns an 11-7 record with a 4.62 ERA in 343 appearances spanning 243.2 innings.
