DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies have acquired infielder Jose Lopez from the Seattle Mariners for right-hander Chaz Roe.
Seattle had turned down a $4.5 million option on Lopez, signed as a free agent in 2000. He hit .239 with 10 homers, 58 RBIs and 29 doubles in 150 games this year for the Mariners, who used him as a third baseman. He also has played second.
Roe was 9-13 with a 5.98 ERA in 27 starts this year at Triple-A Colorado Springs, striking out 115 and walking 53.
