Sox Notes: Lopez officially signed, joins Sox in the Bronx

Posted by Joshua Kummins on September 26, 2010

Yesterday, the Sox officially announced the signing of infielder Felipe Lopez and that he had joined the team in New York. Here is the full press release:

The Boston Red Sox today signed infielder Felipe Lopez, who will be active for today’s game in New York, wearing No. 32. To make room on the 40-man roster, the club transferred outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury to the 60-day disabled list. The Red Sox active Major League roster is now at 36 players.

The announcement was made by Executive Vice President/General Manager Theo Epstein.

Lopez, 30, hit .231 (87-for-376) with 18 doubles, one triple, seven home runs, 36 RBI, 50 runs scored and 43 walks in 109 games with St. Louis this season, including 58 games at third base (51 starts), 24 at second base (17 starts), 24 at shortstop (19 starts), two at first base (one start) and one in right field. He also made his pitching debut with a scoreless 18th inning against the Mets on April 17. An All-Star and National League Silver Slugger award recipient at shortstop with Cincinnati in 2005, Lopez has hit .266 (1,112-for-4,181) with 87 homers, 427 RBI, 586 runs scored, 436 walks and 123 stolen bases in 1,133 career games over parts of 10 Major League seasons with the Blue Jays (2001-02), Reds (2003-06), Nationals (2006-08), Cardinals (2008, 2010), Diamondbacks (2009), and Brewers (2009). He was originally selected by Toronto in the first round of the 1998 First-Year Player Draft.

Ellsbury, 27, was placed on the 15-day disabled list on August 14 with fractured ribs, his third stint on the disabled list in 2010. He appeared in 18 games with the Red Sox this season, going 15-for-78 (.192) with four doubles, five RBI, 10 runs and four walks.
