Lopez returned to the starting line-up at designated hitter on June 3, but aggravated his right hamstring when he hit into a double play in the fifth inning. He was replaced by a pinch-hitter for his fourth plate appearance in the seventh inning.

Alex Ramirez told reporters they want to give Lopez a little time to heal. The Yokohama Bay Stars are planning to take Lopez off the active roster.
