The Phillies have "put the brakes" on a deal that would've brought reliever Wilton Lopez to Philadelphia, according to a report.
The web site said Lopez had come to Philadelphia for a physical on Wednesday, though it wasn't clear whether there was anything physically wrong with the pitcher.
On Wednesday, multiple reports said the Phillies had acquired Lopez for minor leaguers. He has pitched at least 65 innings in each of the past three seasons without finishing with an ERA north of 3.00.
