The Red Sox May Have Bill Hall #2
The Red Sox have offered arbitration to utility middle infielder Felipe Lopez. In 2010, Lopez had a pretty bad season, going .233/8/37, but he had a much better season in 2009, when he went .310/9/57. Last season the Red Sox signed Lopez with around a week left last season and he would be a Type B free agent, meaning that the Red Sox would not receive prospects if he went elsewhere. If he accepts arbitration with the Red Sox, he may be the next Bill Hall, as he is a great utility man and is very affordable, even more so than Felipe Lopez. I hope that Lopez accepts and has a good bounce-back season in 2011.
