RHP Rodrigo Lopez Chooses Braves

Updated Post 9:00 PM

I hate to break this to you, but sadly right-hander Rodrigo Lopez has agreed to sign a minor league contract with the Atlanta Braves.  <sniff> <sniff>

By the way, reliever Elmer Dessens told the Mets he wanted to come back on a minor league deal. They told him to take hike and that they were moving in another direction.

In parts of two seasons with the Mets, Dessens went 4-2 with a 2.71 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP 79 innings that spanned 81 appearances.

According to Jayson Stark of ESPN.com, the Mets have reportedly made an offer to free agent starter Rodrigo Lopez.  The Braves and the Rockies are also interested in his services. 

According to Stark, Lopez is pondering the three offers, and is expected to make a decision on where to play sometime this weekend.

Just as a little tidbit i found, Rodrigo Lopez is the only starter left on the market, that has thrown over 200 IPs.
