Wilton Lopez traded to the Rockies

A timeline of the Wilton Lopez trade to the Rockies:

10:27pm: McTaggart, quoting Luhnow, says White will be in the rotation. Luhnow says Ambriz and Cosart are possibilities for the now-vacant closer role in Houston.

10:11pm: @Rockies:
Rockies have acquired RHP Wilton Lopez and player to be named later or cash from HOU for RHPs Alex White and Alex Gillingham. 

10:08pm: Troy Renck:
Rockies acquire Lopez for Alex White and a minor-league pitcher. 

10:01pm: Troy Renck:
I expect Rockies to land Lopez...teams ironing out last few wrinkles. 

9:53pm: Brian McTaggart:
Wilton Lopez to the Rockies. More to come. 

9:26pm: Troy Renck:
Rockies would look to send two young pitchers to Houston for Lopez, a proven setup man. Parker Frazier would not be in deal. 

9:11pm: Troy Renck tweets:
Rockies closing in on acquiring Wilton Lopez from Astros. Know that the Astros like AA pitcher Parker Frazier. 

7:51pm: Troy Renck:
Rockies continue looking to add relief help and have talked with Astros about Wilton Lopez. If health fine, and told is OK, he'd help.
