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.
Jul 12 - 8:08 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."
Jun 23 - 8:08 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.
May 24 - 9:48 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.

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.

Pirates recalled OF/1B Andrew Lambo from Triple-A Indianapolis.

The 26-year-old has been hammering the ball in the minor leagues this season, slashing .312/.386/.536 with 12 homers and 44 RBI in 69 games, primarily at Triple-A. Unless he finds his way into everyday at-bats though, his fantasy value is limited to NL-only formats.

Pirates prospect OF/1B Andrew Lambo hit his first home run of the season Tuesday as part of a 2-for-4 performance for Triple-A Indianapolis.

Lambo, 25, has been red-hot as of late, batting .417/.462/.694 with eight extra-base hits and 10 RBI in his last 10 games. Overall, he’s batting .354/.440/.557 with 13 extra-base hits, 17 RBI and an 18/11 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 22 games. Unfortunately, Lambo, who posted a .703 OPS in 18 games with the Pirates last year, lacks a clear path to playing time moving forward; top prospect Gregory Polanco is almost ready to take over as the everyday right fielder, and the recent acquisition of Ike Davis ruined his chances of possible platoon at first base with Gaby Sanchez.

Pirates optioned OFs Andrew Lambo and Jaff Decker and RHP Jared Hughes to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Lambo entered spring training with a solid chance to make the Opening Day roster, but he hit .095 (4-for-42) with zero extra-base hits over 17 games during Grapefruit League play. The 25-year-old could earn his way back to the big leagues with a hot start in Triple-A.

Colin Dunlap of 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh was told by a Pirates source that there is "extremely high" doubt Andrew Lambo can handle first base.

Lambo has played the position some in the minors, but it appears he'd probably only be an emergency option there at the big league level. Dunlap adds that it "seems iffy" Lambo will crack the Opening Day roster. Not only has the 25-year-old looked shaky at first base, he's also picked up just two singles in 31 at-bats this spring.

Starting at first base, Andrew Lambo went 0-for-2 on Sunday and is 2-for-20 with no extra-base hits this spring.

The Pirates are giving Lambo a look to see if he might be an answer as a first baseman against righties, but he's not hitting yet. Last year, he had 32 homers and 99 RBI in 120 games between Double- and Triple-A.
Sun, Mar 9, 2014 03:52:00 PM

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said that Andrew Lambo will receive "as many reps as possible" at first base this spring.

Lambo is primarily an outfielder, having played just 41 of his 623 games in the minors at first base. However, there's playing time to be had at first, and the Pirates want to give him an extended look at the position. If he fares well at the position this spring, it's possible he could work his way into the strong side of a platoon with Gaby Sanchez.
Sun, Feb 23, 2014 11:18:00 AM

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle hinted this week that Andrew Lambo could be an option to start for the Pirates in 2014.

The 25-year-old slugger has the ability to play both first base and right field, which are the two gaping holes currently on the Pirates roster. He had an impressive 2013 campaign, slashing .282/.347/.574 with 32 homers and 99 RBI in 120 games between Double-A Altoona and Triple-A Indianapolis. As long as he hits, he should see regular playing time, making him an interesting target in the later rounds of deeper mixed and NL-only leagues.

Pirates recalled OF Andrew Lambo from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Lambo has been up-and-down several times over the past month and probably won't get enough playing time down the stretch to warrant a waiver add in standard fantasy leagues. He had a tremendous season this year in the minors, slugging 32 homers alongside a .922 OPS.
