Former Mets Reliever Signs with the Cubs on Minor League Deal

The Chicago Cubs and right-handed pitcher Jorge Lopez are in agreement on a minor league deal. He pitched for the Mets earlier this season but he was then DFA’d. The first to report the agreement was Will Sammon of the Athletic.


The main cause for the Mets to DFA Jorge Lopez wasn’t because of poor performances, it was due to his actions and what he said. After a game where Jorge Lopez pitched, he got hit around a bit.


Jorge Lopez then decided to toss his glove into the crowd due to his frustrations. He was then ejected from the game. Following that game, Lopez told reporters “I think I've been on the worst team in probably the whole f--king MLB." After that, he was DFA’d by the Mets.


This season has actually been a solid one for Jorge Lopez besides all of that. He’s had a nice bounce back season. In a total of 28 appearances, Lopez has pitched 26.1 IP, 3.76 ERA, 19 SO, and a 1.37 WHIP.


The Cubs will be adding a solid depth piece to their bullpen. Jorge Lopez will have to be called up at some point. It’s very likely that he will indeed be called up to pitch in the majors with the Cubs, especially after he gets used to his new team.
