The Milwaukee Brewers added some depth to their 40-man roster earlier this week by signing utilityman, Tim Lopes.
The Brewers announced on Twitter that they had signed Lopes off waivers after recently being with the Seattle Mariners. Interestingly enough the Brewers were able to fill a void at the MLB and minor league level with Lopes because of his remaining minor league options. Lopes was selected in the sixth round at pick No. 191 by the Seattle Mariners in the 2012 MLB draft. The 26-year old spent time with the Mariners in 2019 and 2020 and earned over 128 plate appearances in his time. Lopes saw a .270 batting average in his short Major League time and prior to that he batted .277 over an eight season span in the minor league system.
