Sidelined until January by heart surgery, UA baseball coach Andy Lopez is working ahead. Leading to Wednesday’s letter-of-intent day, Lopez got a recruiting commitment from elite infielder Shane Martinez of North High School in Riverside, Calif., who was a first-team all-conference player as a freshman in 2012. Martinez is just entering his junior season.
