Description: According to the Astros' official website, Houston GM Jeff Luhnow said Tuesday he would be comfortable with Wilton Lopez handling the closing duties next season.
Insight: Lopez has been very reliable for Houston over the past three seasons, tossing 203 1/3 innings and recording a cumulative 2.66 ERA. He took over at closer for Brett Myers after Myers was traded and has saved nine games in 12 chances overall.

Description: Astros manager Brad Mills said Tuesday that Wilton Lopez is his new primary closer, according to Brain McTaggart of MLB.com. Francisco Cordero blew each of his three save chances after coming over from Toronto.
Insight: Lopez is someone to target in all leagues even if the Astros won't hand him many save opportunities.

Description: After being anointed closer by Astros manager Brad Mills Tuesday, Wilton Lopez threw during batting practice and experienced tightness in his elbow, according to Brian McTaggart of MLB.com.
Insight: Lopez will be unavailable Tuesday. The right-hander spent time on the DL earlier this season due to a strained UCL.
 
7/12/2012 4:07:00 PM
Description: Astros GM Jeff Luhnow told MLB.com that relievers Brett Myers and Brandon Lyon are on the trade market, meaning Wilton Lopez would likely assume Houston's closer role.
Insight: Lopez has a 2.51 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 32 1/3 innings this season, and he's also walked just four batters against 26 strikeouts. The right-hander has had a sub-3.00 ERA in each of the last three seasons, so while Houston may not provide him with many save chances, he's a worthwhile add in all formats.
