Trade Deadline: #SFGiants and #Tigers Talking Night Train

By Stuart Jones

Against 71 batters in 2013, Lopez is .167/.232/.234 with a .213 wOBA against LHH. That would be very useful for a contending team, and we remember how the lack of bullpen depth ended up hurting the Tigers in the last World Series. The Giants have been rumored to want a major-league ready pitcher, but might they lighten up on that stance for a prospect with a 2014 estimated time of arrival?
