Diamondbacks' Christian Lopes: Signs minors deal with Arizona
Lopes signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Monday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
The 28-year-old has yet to make his big-league debut. He can play anywhere in the infield or in the outfield corners, which helps his chances at winning a bench spot, but his .263/.359/.410 career line at the Triple-A level isn't particularly exciting.... See More ... See Less

Rangers' Christian Lopes: Testing out catching
Lopes is working on catching this spring, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
Lopes has been mostly an infielder to this point in his career, also spending a bit of time in the outfield corners. Infield-to-catcher transitions are not unheard of but are uncommon. Lopes hit a respectable .261/.365/.408 with 12 homers and 16 steals for Triple-A Round Rock last season, numbers which would look all the more interesting behind the plate.... See More ... See Less
