Pitcher Jorge Lopez was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2nd round of the 2011 amateur draft. He was signed by scouts Charlie Sullivan and Manolo Hernandez for $695,000 and made his pro debut that summer. Lopez played for the World Team in the 2014 Futures Game.
On July 27, 2018, he was traded to the Kansas City Royals along with Brett Phillips in return for 3B Mike Moustakas. Facing the Twins on September 8th, he began the game by pitching 8 perfect innings, but he lost his bid to add his name to the record boooks when he walked Max Kepler to lead off the 9th, and then a single to Robbie Grossman before being rel;ieved by Wily Peralta, having thrown 110 pitches. He received credit for the 4-1 win.
