Struggling Lopez heads to DL
BOSTON -- Javy Lopez will have to wait at least another week to snap out of an early season funk.
The designated hitter-catcher has batted just .221 (15-for-68) with one home run and eight RBI in 19 games with the Orioles this season. He last played on April 27 at Toronto.
In a related move, the Orioles activated outfielder Luis Matos from the DL. Matos has been out since April 17 with right shoulder inflammation and is batting a meager .138 (4-for-29) with two homers and two RBI in nine games.
