Lopez worked out at Giants Stadium today.  There was some concern about his left side because he missed some time in June with a similar injury, but it appears his condition is not serious.  He is not expected to miss the Climax Series.

Senichi Hoshino was disappointed at the news because he found out the elbow was giving Mima problems even before the coaches noticed something wrong with him from the dugout.
