Javier Lopez Re-Signs With Giants For 3 Yrs/$13MM

By Denise Walos

It’s finally official, Javier Lopez has re-signed with the Giants for three years/$13 MMM. Deal is pending a physical and the Giants must DFA someone on the 40-man roster to make room for Lopez.

An overpaid left handed reliever? Don’t think so, the stats say it all.

Lopez is 27-13 with a 3.64 ERA over the last 11 years and is 14-4 with a 2.26 ERA with the Giants in the last four seasons. Left-handed batters are only batting .156 when facing Lopez. The Giants have also won two World Series with him.
