Tim Lopes was designated for assignment by the Seattle Mariners on Friday to free up roster space.
Seattle had to free up a roster spot after officially signing Chris Flexen to a two-year deal and Lopes was let go in a corresponding move. Lopes provided some juice at times for the upstart Mariners in 2020 and finished the season with a .238/.278/.364 batting line to go along with two home runs, 15 RBI, and five stolen bases across 143 at-bats.
Tim Lopes went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in the Mariners 7-4 extra-innings loss to the Padres on Sunday.
After a pitcher's duel through the first four innings, Lopes broke up the stalemate with an RBI double, his 11th of the year, off Dinelson Lamet to score Evan White. The Mariners only had five hits as a team and they eventually lost in extra-innings. Lopes started off the season on a positive note but struggled with consistency most of August and is no longer an everyday player for the M's. He owns a .258 batting average with a .674 OPS to go along with 11 doubles, one home run, 13 RBI, and five stolen bases.
Tim Lopes went a combined 3-for-5 with three doubles, two runs, and one RBI in the Mariners doubleheader against the A's on Monday.
Lopes hit three-doubles in Game 1 of the doubleheader, one of which tied the game in the bottom of the sixth. He was optioned to the M's alternate site back in early September and considering Monday was the first appearances he's made since August 30th, he can safely be left on the waiver wire in all formats.
Tim Lopes went 1-for-4 with an RBI in the Mariners 3-2 loss to the Angels on Friday.
Lopes singled in Kyle Seager in the top of the ninth as the Mariners attempted to come back from 3-1 deficit. They would go on to lose 3-2, though. Lopes really cooled off after a hot start in July and is now slashing ./232/.277/.326 with one home run and eight RBI across 95 at-bats. He carries no fantasy value.
Tim Lopes went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in the M's 7-4 over the Rangers on Friday.
This was Lopes best game in quite some time as he's cooled off considerably in August after a hot start in July. He doesn't carry much fantasy value, apart from the stolen bases, as he's a perfect 5-for-5 in theft attempts on the year. He's slashing .247/.293/.351 with one home run and five RBI across 77 at-bats.
