Dead on the Vine? Lopez Deal Falls Apart.

After reports yesterday that a deal for Astros reliever Wilton Lopez was imminent, apparently the results of a medical records review and physical were enough to scare the Phillies and kill the deal.

Back to the ol' drawing board, I guess.

Really, if Tyler Cloyd and Sebastian Valle is all the Phillies were sending, the medical concerns must have been very real.
