WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

Lopez got one of the bigger bonuses in the Pirates’ 2018-19 international signing period.  He had Tommy John surgery after he signed, but was healthy by the time the DSL season started.

2019
DSL:  341/404/485, 167 AB, 10 2B, 4 3B, 2 HR, 14 BB, 30 K, 5-7 SB

Jerez played mostly short in his debut season, although he saw a little time at first and third.  He had problems with errors, committing 18 at short.  He did well at the plate, with strong gap power and passable plate discipline.

The Pirates brought Lopez to fall instructionals and he’ll likely be in the GCL in 2020.
