and the topps back:
lopez spent a total of 3 seasons in the majors, each with a different team.  in 1976 he was with the angels, the mariners in 1977, and then the orioles in 1978.  he played in 129 games for the orioles, but was mostly used as a pinch hitter or runner, so he had fewer at bats than he had had in seattle.  he hit just .238 with 4 home runs on the season.  in 1979 he played for the orioles' aaa affiliate but never made it back to the majors.

voici à vous, 1978 carlos lopez!
