The Giants left-handed reliever has been the subject of interest from several teams as the deadline nears. Danny Knobler of CBS sports reported interest from the Tigers and Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer linked the Indians to the Giants pitcher. However, the Reds may be the only team still working to acquire Lopez after hearing the Giants' price. Hoynes reports that the Giants wanted rookie starter Danny Salazar from the Indians for Lopez and the price remains high, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Lopez is one of the top options on the market for teams seeking left-handed relief help. Over 25 1/3 innings this season, he has posted a 1.42 ERA and struck out a career high 9.6 batters per nine innings. The Reds already have one of the most dominant lefties in the game closing for them in Aroldis Chapman, but they have need for a situational lefty like Lopez to help them earlier in the game.
