Andrew Lambo underwent surgery for testicular cancer last week at Vanderbilt University.

Lambo is currently on the disabled list at Triple-A Nashville with no timetable for activation. He'll undergo another round of pathology tests this week before the physicians at Vanderbilt can map out a plan. Baseball obviously isn't the focus at the moment.

Athletics optioned OF Andrew Lambo to Triple-A Nashville.

The move clears a roster spot for Friday's starter, Eric Surkamp. Lambo is hitless in one at-bat this season.
Apr 8 - 1:24 PM

Athletics recalled OF Andrew Lambo from Triple-A Nashville.

Lambo is replacing Felix Doubront, who was supposed to serve as the A's fifth starter but suffered an elbow sprain in his final spring outing. Lambo probably won't play much in the crowded Oakland outfield and he could be sent back down when Doubront's replacement is promoted.

Athletics optioned OF Andrew Lambo to Triple-A Nashville.

Matt Chapman is also getting sent down. Both of them had great springs with Lambo hitting .333 and Chapman checking in at .279 with five homers. Lambo only managed one hit in 25 at-bats for the Pirates last season. He'll get some chances in Oakland this year.
Apr 2 - 8:17 PM

Andrew Lambo finished 2-for-4 with two RBI in the A's 6-5 win over the Padres on Sunday in Arizona.

Lambo singled against Padres starter James Shields in the top of the second inning and then cranked a two-run shot off Rule 5 Draft pick Luis Perdomo in the top of the fourth. The 27-year-old outfielder was claimed off waivers from the Pirates in November and is looking to earn a spot on the A's bench this spring. He has posted some exciting numbers in the minor leagues.
Mar 6 - 7:35 PM

Athletics and 1B/OF Andrew Lambo avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract.

The A's scooped Lambo off waivers after he was designated for assignment by the Pirates in early November. A bout of plantar fasciitis sidelined him from May through the end of the 2015 season. The 27-year-old should be healthy come spring training in 2016, at which point he'll be looking to secure a spot on the A's bench.

Athletics claimed 1B/OF Andrew Lambo off waivers from the Pirates.

Lambo's 2015 season was cut short due to plantar fasciitis, but when healthy he has quite a bit of pop in his bat. He'll compete for a bench role with the A's in the spring.

Andrew Lambo's rehabilitation from plantar fasciitis has been halted for at least three weeks.

Lambo was given an anti-inflammatory injection. He's been on the disabled list since early May and might not return at all in 2015. "He had progressed into some baseball activity and was progressing well and came in with similar pain with what he had the first time we shut it down," Pirates GM Neal Huntington said Sunday.

Andrew Lambo (foot) has resumed baseball activities.

He has been able to begin taking swings and field ground balls, but hasn't been cleared for full game action. He's still a minimum of several weeks away from being ready for a potential return to the Pirates.
Sun, Jul 12, 2015 08:08:00 PM

Pirates transferred 1B/OF Andrew Lambo from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Deolis Guerra. Lambo will be eligible to return from plantar fasciitis in his left foot next week, but he's not remotely close to making it back.

Andrew Lambo (foot) has resumed some baseball activities.

Lambo has been out since early May with plantar fasciitis in his left foot and is still a ways away from returning. "Better days. Able to take some swings, able to throw, able to do some baseball activity," Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said. "But to be a baseball player, still not quite there yet."
Tue, Jun 23, 2015 08:08:00 PM

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Saturday that Andrew Lambo (foot) is "still not showing the signs of improvement and progress to get him into any type of game."

Lambo has been sidelined for the last three weeks with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. It's an ailment that can linger and it doesn't sound like the Pirates are expecting him back anytime soon.
Sun, May 24, 2015 09:48:00 AM

Pirates placed OF Andrew Lambo on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 4, with plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

It's unclear how long Lambo has been dealing with the ailment or how long he'll be sidelined. Steve Lombardozzi has replaced him on the roster.
Wed, May 6, 2015 02:16:00 PM

Andrew Lambo doubled twice and scored twice Tuesday against the Rays.

The Pirates have no plans for Lambo, even after he hit .312/.386/.536 in the minors last year, but he could be had by another team willing to give up a decent prospect for him. It's unclear if the 26-year-old would last as a starter at first base or in an outfield corner, but he wouldn't be a bad flier.
