Duquette: Orioles have internal replacements for open OF slot


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Orioles executive vice president for baseball operations Dan Duquette said Thursday that the team has internal options on hand to replace outfielder Nick Markakis, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Markakis is heading to Atlanta, leaving the Orioles with a hole in the outfield, but it appears they're leaning towards plugging that slot internally. Duquette mentioned Alejandro De Aza, David Lough and Steve Pearce as potential options, while Dariel Alvarez and Mike Yastrzemski are minor-leaguers who could also figure into the mix. The Orioles will still be looking for outfield depth on the market, even if the team's starting replacement for Markakis is already in the organization. Duquette also mentioned the bullpen as an area of priority this offseason.

Of the major-league options mentioned, Pearce shined the brightest offensively in 2014, hitting .292/.373/.556 with 21 home runs, 49 RBI and five stolen bases in 338 at-bats in the best season of his career by far. De Aza spent much of the season with the White Sox before coming to Baltimore, and he hit .252/.314/.386 between the two teams with eight home runs, 41 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 477 at-bats. Lough hit .247/.309/.385 with four home runs, 16 RBI and eight stolen bases in 174 at-bats.

Lough hasn't seen much playing time in the second half, racking up just 29 at-bats since the All-Star break going into Wednesday's game. However, he did manage to go 3 for 5 in his last start on Aug. 31, and he's now 11 for 33 with one home run and two stolen bases in the second half. He owns a .227/.293/.347 line with three home runs, 11 RBI and seven stolen bases in 150 at-bats on the season.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"We would like him to be able to do it," Showalter said. "It would fit everything better, especially when Manny (Machado) gets back ... David's got the skills set to do it. We'll see.

"There's a different dynamic when he is on base. Any time you can make people rush a little bit and get in a hurry ... they hurry when David is hitting. He'll open up some things for some hitters behind him if he can get on base like he has."

X-rays negative on David Lough's foot

David Lough likely now a backup, but manager still impressed


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2014) The signing of outfielder Nelson Cruz will likely push David Lough into a reserve role for the Orioles, but Buck Showalter remains impressed with the latter.

"He doesn't need to show us how hard he plays," Showalter told the Baltimore Sun. "He comes with that [reputation]. We've done our homework."

Despite his age of 28, Lough never received extended playing time in the bigs until 2013. He took advantage of his opportunity with Kansas City by batting .286. But he does not boast the power of Cruz, who could also play some at desginated hitter, thereby giving Lough playing time in left.


David Lough hoping to earn starting spot with Birds


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Newly acquired Orioles outfielder David Lough has no choice but to be a late-bloomer if he hopes to forge a long-term major league career. He turned 28 on Jan. 20.

Lough, however, recorded a career-best .338 batting average and .391 OBP last year at Triple-A Omaha. He also reached the bigs for the first time as more than a September call-up, batting .286 with five home runs and 33 RBI with Kansas City before a trade sent him to Baltimore in December. He will try to land the starting job in left field.

"I don't have a ton of time to work at it," Lough told MASN.com. "But being in the minors and having time to work at things has definitely improved me as a player. Still feel I can grow so much more as a player."
