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. Apr 25 - 10:40 PM

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.

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.
Apr 11 - 4:32 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.

David Lough (hamstring) got four at-bats in an intrasquad game Wednesday in Sarasota, Florida.

Lough is scheduled to play a full nine innings in an intrasquad game Thursday and should then be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. He's on track to join the Orioles' active roster late next week.

Apr 7 - 5:35 PM

David Lough (hamstring) is due to be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Saturday.

Lough was placed on the DL at the end of spring training due to a left hamstring strain. The backup outfielder also battled some back discomfort in March, but neither of these aliments should be lingering issues.
Apr 6 - 1:19 PM

Orioles placed OF David Lough on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

This was the expected move. Lough's been dealing with both a sore hamstring and a sore back this spring. The earliest he'll be able to return to the club is April 11, though he's indicated that he's not sure when his hamstring will be ready. On the positive side, Lough said that his back now feels fine.

Mar 24 - 12:52 PM

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.
