Pirates' Andrew Lambo (foot) doing baseball activities
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/23/15) Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said first baseman and outfielder Andrew Lambo was able to participate in some baseball activities on Tuesday, according to MLB.com.
Lambo has been on the disabled list since May 3 with plantar fasciitis.
"Better days. Able to take some swings, able to throw, able to do some baseball activity," Huntington said. "But to be a baseball player, still not quite there yet."

Lambo is on the 15-day disabled list and he has been limited due to the injury.

Pirates place Lambo (foot) on DL; promote Lombardozzi from Triple-A
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/6/15) The Pirates have purchased the contract of infielder/outfielder Steve Lombardozzi from Triple-A Indianapolis and have placed outfielder Andrew Lambo on the 15-day disabled list -- retroactive to May 4 -- with a case of plantar fasciitis, per the team's official website.
Lombardozzi started the year with a .379 batting average, which currently ranks second in the International League. He has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 minor-league games, while batting .415 (17 for 41) over that span.
Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco scratched from lineup Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco was scratched from Monday's game against the Cubs with groin tightness, the team announced.
"It really wasn't loosening up, so we stayed away from him," manger Clint Hurdle said, per MLB.com.
Polanco will receive treatment and be re-evaluated during the game, according to the report. Manager Clint Hurdle said after the game Polanco is day to day with the injury and suffered it while running the bases against the Diamondbacks over the weekend, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Andrew Lambo will replace him in the starting lineup and bat second. Lambo is hitting .056 with one hit in 18 at-bats this season.
Lambo, Liz, Hughes, Caminero expected to make Pirates' roster
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/4/15) Andrew Lambo, Radhames Liz, Jared Hughes and Arquimedes Caminero are all expected to make the Pirates' Opening Day roster, manager Clint Hurdle announced on Saturday, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Lambo won the final bench spot on the roster despite a .183 batting average this spring. Lis and Caminero are expected to serve as middle relievers, while Hughes will serve as a setup man.
|2014 summary: For the second straight year, Andrew Lambo decimated the upper levels of the minors, batting .328 with 11 home runs and a .952 OPS in 238 at-bats at Triple-A Indianapolis. It wasn't quite as impressive as his 32-homer campaign between Double- and Triple-A in 2013, but he was a more disciplined hitter and it showed up in his batting average. |
Playing time status: Yet again, Lambo's performance earned him only a token look in the majors, where he failed to impress in 39 at-bats, but general manager Neal Huntington is a fan, citing Lambo's rise as one incentive for trading Travis Snider. The Pirates have a full outfield, but Lambo can spell Gregory Polanco and Starling Marte, as well as first baseman Pedro Alvarez.
2015 outlook: The Pirates intend to give Lambo 200 to 300 at-bats this year, about the same as Snider last year, and if he capitalizes on that playing time, he could possibly make Alvarez expendable. At age 26, it's probably now or never for him. The Pirates' faith as well as Lambo's minor-league production makes him worth a flier in NL-only leagues.
