David Lough was scratched from Tuesday's Grapefruit League lineup.

No word on the reason for the change. The Orioles should pass along an update soon.
Mar 24 - 10:56 AM

David Lough went 0-for-3 on Friday and is 4-for-24 this spring.

Lough isn't a bad use of a bench spot for a major league team, but can the Orioles' carry a left-handed-hitting reserve outfielder when their starting corner outfielders (Alejandro De Aza and Travis Snider) are left-handed hitters? It'll certainly be a tight fit, but at the same time, it'd be hard to give up Lough's defense.

David Lough went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in a loss to the Red Sox on Sunday.

Getting a rare start, Lough provided an RBI double and a run scored in the sixth inning. Lough is hitting .240/.302/.371 in a part-time role this season.

Lough entered the game for Delmon Young in the seventh inning. In the bottom of the eighth, Lough took right-hander Casey Janssen deep to pad the Orioles' lead to 6-1. Lough, who has operated mostly as a bench player for the Orioles, has four homers on the season along with 12 RBI and a .230/.295/.360 slash line.

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.

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.

David Lough clubbed a walkoff RBI single in the bottom of the 12th inning Saturday as the Orioles bested the Blue Jays by a score of 2-1.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that while David Lough was held out of the lineup, he is available to play.

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.

Roch Kubatko of reports that David Lough will be placed on the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game.

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.
