The Twins announced on the 22nd (Korean time) that they have agreed to a four-year contract extension with Lopez. The contract applies until 2027.

According to major league reporter Robert Murray, the condition is to receive a contract of $1 million, $8 million for the 2023-4 season, and $21.5 million for three years from 2025 to 2027.
Lopez joined Minnesota in a trade from the Miami Marlins in January. He paid a hefty price. He acquired Luis Araez, who led the American League in batting average.
It’s still early in the season, but he’s showing an activity that’s worth the price. He has 1 win and 1 loss with an ERA of 1.73 in 26 innings in 4 games. He posted a WHIP of 0.808 with 0.7 home runs per 9 innings, 2.1 walks and 11.4 strikeouts.
Born in Venezuela, he is 29-32 with a 3.83 ERA in 98 appearances over six seasons in the major leagues.
With this contract, he takes over the remaining salary adjustments and delays his free agency qualification by three years.
