Padres place claim on Felipe Lopez

The Padres placed a waiver claim on infielder Felipe Lopez, according to Corey Brock of MLB.com. Lopez, recently released by the Cardinals, is being labeled as a cancer by his old coaches who said he had every opportunity to play regularly in St. Louis. 

It is possible Lopez joins the Padres for the final week or two, but he won't be eligible for the playoff roster meaning he may be a 2011 option for the club. 

This will be Lopez's fifth team since 2008.
