Yankees, Angels Interested In Lopez

The Boston Herald is reporting that the Red Sox have put Javier Lopez on waivers and are waiting to hear whether or not he can be assigned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Lopez is 0-2 with a 9.26 ERA in 14 games this season, but had a 2.43 ERA last season in 70 games. The Yankees are believed to be considering Lopez, mostly because they have the third worst bullpen ERA in the AL (5.85).

One AL executive wouldn't be surprised to see the Angels make a move. Even though they are close to adding Rudy Seanez, adding a reliever with Lopez's talent could be worth your while when he starts to turn it around. He has only appeared in 14 games, so a turnaround is inevitable.
