Phillies purchased the contract of OF David Lough from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Lough is replacing Cedric Hunter, who was off to a dreadful start offensively. Lough isn't much of a hitter either, but he is a very good defender and may get regular starts for a bit in the patchwork Philadelphia outfield.
Apr 18 - 2:56 PM

Phillies reassigned OF David Lough and INF Ryan Jackson to minor league camp.

These cuts mean that the final two bench spots should come down to Emmanuel Burriss, Will Venable, and Cedric Hunter. A decision should come down soon.
Mar 29 - 9:11 AM

David Lough went 2-for-3 with a walk as the Phillies' leadoff man Tuesday against the Twins.

Lough is in great position to make the Phillies, and he could get a lot of time in the early going, what with Odubel Herrera's status somewhat up in the air. It helps his case that he's a left-handed hitter and the Phillies are leaning towards starting a pair of fringe right-handed bats in Peter Bourjos and Rule 5 pick Tyler Goeddel in the corners.
Mar 22 - 4:51 PM

Phillies signed OF David Lough to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Lough was non-tendered by the Orioles in early December after batting just .201/.241/.313 during the 2015 regular season. He's a good defensive outfielder, capable of playing all three positions, and should have a decent shot at cracking the Opening Day roster with the rebuilding Phillies.
Jan 25 - 3:07 PM

Orioles non-tendered OF David Lough.

Lough put in his worst offensive season at the major league level in 2015. The 29-year-old outfielder hit just .201/.241/.313 with four homers and 12 RBI over 134 at-bats. While his stick leaves something to be desired, Lough does offer an above-average glove to potential suitors now that he's a free agent.

Orioles purchased the contract of OF David Lough from Triple-A Norfolk.

Lough will give the O's a little extra outfield depth for the final week-and-a-half of the 2015 regular season. The 29-year-old is a .256/.296/.378 career hitter at the major league level, but he's very good defensively.

Orioles sent OF David Lough outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

Lough cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain in the organization. It's possible he'll be back next month when rosters expand.

Orioles designated OF David Lough for assignment.

Lough has hit just .228/.281/.356 over the last two seasons for the Orioles, so the move isn't too surprising. Junior Lake and Nolan Reimold will handle left field for the O's.

David Lough was the lone bright spot on offense for the Orioles on Thursday, going 2-for-3 in a losing effort against the Rangers.

The Orioles were shut out by Yovani Gallardo and company on Thursday, with Lough tallying two of the team's three total hits. He has struggled for the most part in limited time with the O's, slashing just .216/.262/.351 on the season.

David Lough hit a three-run home run to propel the Orioles to a 6-4 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Lough's three-run blast off Red Sox starter Joe Kelly in the second inning wasn't the difference in the game, but it certainly set the tone. Lough also scored a run the fourth inning as the O's extended their lead. The part-time outfielder has four home runs and 12 RBI to go with a .226/.261/.381 in 84 at-bats this year.

David Lough's home run off of Koji Uehara in the bottom of the tenth inning gave the Orioles a 5-4 win.

The Orioles were actually down 4-3 entering the bottom of the tenth inning. The normally reliable Koji Uehara was unable to hold the lead, though, and after a Chris Davis sacrifice fly tied the contest at 4-4, Lough stepped to the plate and delivered his dramatic shot to win it. It was Lough's first home run of the season. Not surprising, given that he hit just four last year. Lough works mostly as a backup outfielder and a late-game defensive substitution. Walk-off home runs are just a bonus.

Orioles activated OF David Lough from the 15-day disabled list.

Lough's been recovering from a left hamstring injury suffered near the end of spring training. He'll serve mostly as a backup outfielder for the O's. Lough's glove makes him a solid late-game defensive substitute.
Mon, Apr 13, 2015 02:40:00 PM

David Lough (hamstring) is scheduled to play his first rehab game at High-A Frederick on Sunday.

He'll probably play there again on Monday and could then join the Orioles' active roster. Lough suffered a left hamstring strain at the end of spring training. He'll be a reserve outfielder for Baltimore this year, often entering games as a late defensive sub.
Sat, Apr 11, 2015 04:32:00 PM

David Lough (hamstring) was able to take live batting practice with the Orioles on Saturday and is close to a return to the active roster.

The O's will have to make a decision on Wesley Wright in a few days, and if he goes on the disabled list it would open a spot on the active roster for Lough. He'll function as a reserve outfielder upon his return and won't have any fantasy value outside of very deep AL-only formats.
