Lopez may be the sleeper. This kid has had some OBP problems but has always been a little young for his level. He was good last year in AA but struggled in AAA. This year he develops in AAA. Maybe if Krivsky "loves him" as you say, he can come up and signal the end of the "Juan Castro era" in Cincy. Time for Juan to become a coach IMO. With Dent gone, maybe he's the guy to coach the infielders. I'd like to see Lopez up soon.
Lopez line after last night: .312/.372/.394/.766
The thing that concerns me about him even though I love his line so far (albeit in only 109 ABs), is his home/raod splits.
Considering his past of not hitting, I'm afraid Louisville's park is inflating his numbers. Although, I don't think Louisville is some extreme hitters park so it could just be a coincidence. Either way, I hope he keeps hitting. When you consider his age, like you said, he could be a sleeper.
Dickerson's line sits at .249/.369/..422/.791
