Watched him pitch 4 innings the other day. At times he was masterful, changing speeds, but he had a few strings of hitters where they just teed off on him in scary fashion. He owned Pujols (0-3) but that was the only overall positive. Probably want to avoid him.

There was a moment in his career, a year actually, when he did look like Maddux, but then he and we found out how hard that is to replicate.

Signed a minor league contract with Atlanta. Took the ball every fifth day for AZ with mediocre results. Watching him from the center field camera, he looks just like Greg Maddux when he pitches ... with very different outcomes.

Evidently, Rodrigo's HR/FB luck came to an end... Eric Seidman at BP observes, "it seemed like he pitched the entire season for the Diamondbacks without being demoted or missing time, and yet he never really pitched all that well."

Seidman rolled out BP's favorite toy, Wins Above Replacement, and found, "Sure enough, Lopez finished the 2010 season with exactly 200 innings and exactly zero wins above replacement level produced."

According to Seidman this is a very rare occurence. The last pitcher to throw 200 or more innings and be no better and no worse than a replacement level pitcher was Livan Hernandez in 2001.

And I thought Livan did that every year.
