In a recent interview (link below) with Eddie Romero Jr, Deiner Lopez was singled out along with Cleuluis Rondon and Aneudis Peralta (talk about some great names down in the DSL!) as guys to watch out for as the season progresses:
Lopez is [a] shortstop who we’re moving around the field. He is also a switch-hitter with a lot of potential.
Link to Romero Interview
Through 168 PAs, Lopez is sporting a triple slash of .270/.425/.369 (.794 OPS), with 10 steals in 13 ABs. He has shown a little pop in his bat with 10 XBHs, but his 27/30 BB/K ratio sticks out to me - any middle infielder with some upside who shows that kind of plate discipline is worth watching in my opinion.
