Wilton Lopez: To Close Games for Astros

Rotowire.com
Update: Astros manager Brad Mills said that Lopez will close out games, but the team will not rule out using him earlier in key situations, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Recommendation: After another implosion from Francisco Cordero (a non ninth-inning appearance) on Monday, it appears as though Lopez has moved to the front of the line for save chances in Houston.
