Orioles' Lough disappointed hamstring injury will force him to DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Orioles outfielder David Lough is no longer dealing with back discomfort, but he admitted Tuesday a left hamstring injury will prevent him from making the Opening Day roster.

"My hamstring was sore a couple weeks ago and then we think it went to my back and SI joint (sacroiliac joint)," he said, per MASNsports.com. "It's just getting back to where I was at the beginning of spring training. We thought the best approach to getting back healthy was to take some time off and get right.

"Your body works together and when you get a hamstring injury it can stem up to your back. I was bending down to get a ball and my SI joint gave out. I had some back spasms. We think those two were related in the injury. At that point my hamstring wasn't 100 percent. Now my back is completely fine, it's just taking care of my hamstring and getting healthy."

Lough won't be eligible to return from the disabled list until April 11.

"It's not much time that I'd miss, but I do need to catch up on my at-bats with the rest of the guys," he said. "I don't know my schedule or anything like that so far, so we're just taking it day to day and trying to get healthy."

Orioles' Lough not expecting back injury to sideline him for long


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Orioles outfielder David Lough said Wednesday he is targeting a return to the lineup within the next few days after being scratched from Tuesday's spring game due to back spasms, per MASNsports.com. 

"I was in the batting cages picking up balls," he said. "I picked up a ball and my lower back started spasming on me and I could barely walk yesterday. I talked to the trainers. They kind of shut me down yesterday and I feel a lot better today.

"Hopefully, I'll be back tomorrow, maybe a couple days, whenever they feel like it's best for me to get back on the field."

Lough, who hit .351 in the second half last season, is batting just .185 (5 for 27) this spring as he competes for a spot on the Orioles' bench.

"After that day off (Monday), I was eager to come back and play in the game and get into the groove of things," he said. "It's one of those things that just happens. You can't really control it. So, it's just about getting back healthy and getting back to the field.

"I've never really had a back issue before, so I don't know what's stemming from it. Just trying to figure things out. I'm a man that tries to do that with my body and stuff. So, I'll get it right and be back soon."

"It was just sore. That's all. It wasn't a strain or anything. It just needed a little bit of rest. We just didn't want it to progress into something like a strain or a pulled hamstring that's a major setback, so he just gave me a few days and it's better now."

David Lough looking for fast start with Orioles this year


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Outfielder David Lough had a poor first impression on Orioles' fans last year. 

Lough suffered a concussion in the spring and was still feeling the effects early in the season. Lough was hitting .159 though 38 games, and the slump took nearly half a season to turn around. 

"It was more of a mental thing," Lough told MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli. "It was with me, I kind of felt it a little bit. And with baseball, you've got to have a clear mind a little bit. If it's stuck in your mind, it's just going to be worse."

In the second half of the year, Lough settled down and hit a groove. He hit .337 from June on, but it only lifted his average for the year to .247. 

Lough hopes to continue his hot hitting in the new season. "I felt like that was the old me, swing-wise and having my mental approach going up to the plate," he said. "It's just trying to bring that into Spring Training and put those first 100 at-bats from last year aside and have a good spring."


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.
