David Lough’s struggles continued in Friday’s loss to the Royals, going 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts.
The Orioles had high hopes for the 28-year-old outfielder, but he has hit just .180/.241/.260 with a 10/3 K/BB ratio in his first 16 games. He’s difficult to use even in AL-only leagues at this point. Apr 25 - 10:42 PM

David Lough collected three hits in four at-bats, walked, and stole two bases as the Orioles topped the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Lough hadn't done much of anything at the dish, but was a big factor in the Orioles' 11-run outburst against the Blue Jays. Acquired in the off-season in a trade with the Royals, Lough also crossed home plate three times and stole his third and fourth bases on the season.

The O's are simply playing things cautiously with Lough, and even though he passed all of the concussion tests, they're giving him an extra day or two to recover. There's a good chance he returns to the top of the Orioles lineup at some point over the weekend.

Kubatko isn't sure what injury Lough is dealing with, but he didn't play Tuesday and the word is that he's DL-bound. Lough did battle a neck ailment late in spring training, so perhaps it's a recurrence of that issue. Jemile Weeks will take Lough's spot on the roster.

Orioles hitting coach Jim Presley said Saturday that David Lough could be used as the team's leadoff hitter when he's in the lineup.

When asked about the possibility, Presley noted, "He runs well enough and he bunts and he can do a lot of things so I do like him there." The 28-year-old outfielder has a bit of power and a bit of speed, but won't be relevant in mixed leagues unless he seizes an everyday job in the Orioles outfield which isn't likely to occur.
