Rays send Durham's Lopez to Brewers

Durham infielder Felipe Lopez has been traded to the Milwaukee Brewers and assigned to Triple-A Nashville, according to the Pacific Coast League's transactions page.

QUICK UPDATE: Lopez fetched cash considerations from Milwaukee, according to St. Petersburg Times baseball savant Marc Topkin.

Lopez was initially headed to Durham after spring training before Evan Longoria's oblique injury rerouted him to the majors. Lopez hit .216 in 32 games with the Rays and .305 in 48 with Durham. He's been in the majors each of the last 11 years.
