Lombardozzi did tell the Baltimore Sun that he is not injured. He has minor league options left. His production would make such a move a bit of a surprise. He had 10 hits in a seven-game stretch before going hitless in his last two. He boasts a .292 batting average.


Seven different Orioles' players contribute RBI in win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Orioles got most of their runs during a six-run third inning. Nick Markakis, Nelson Cruz, Chris Davis and Jonathan Schoop all had RBI singles. Adam Jones got an RBI on a fielder's choice and Steve Clevenger had an RBI double.

The Orioles' other run came in the eighth inning on Ryan Flaherty's RBI single. The Orioles hit .303 (10 for 33) and had four walks during the win.


Orioles acquire Steve Lombardozzi from Tigers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Report: Tigers seeking to make trade for starting shortstop


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) The Tigers are talking a good game about the likes of Hernan Perez or Stephen Lombardozzi replacing the injured Jose Iglesias as their starting shortstop, but they have been seeking potential trade partners, several scouts have told ESPN.

One possibility that has reported is Didi Gregorius, who seems on the verge of being beaten out for the staring job by Chris Owings and is reportedly on the trade block. But the Diamondbacks could be looking for a starting pitcher and the Tigers already traded Doug Fister in the offseason and might not be willing to let another one go for Gregorius, who would likely be ousted when Iglesias returns.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Lombardozzi is the only player with more than one season of major-league experience in the deal for the Tigers. He carries a .264/.297/.342 line in 257 games, and hit .259 with just two home runs and 22 RBI in 290 at-bats last season.

Krol appeared in 32 games as a rookie, posting a 3.95 ERA in 27 1/3 innings. He struck out 22 batters and walked just eight in that span.

"I’m going to have to juggle it up and do a few things tomorrow. Change the mind set," manager Davey Johnson told MLB.com. "I’m going to get Lombo in the lineup, get him hitting in the top of the order. Move Werth around. He said some things to me after the ballgame. So just shake some things up a little bit. Little different roles."

The Nationals are looking for a spark in the lineup after dropping six straight home games and scoring just four runs in their last four games.


Stephen Lombardozzi waiting on call


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2013) Despite believing he should be an everyday player, Nationals second baseman Stephen Lombardozzi has maintained his mental focus as a bench player and is hitting .333 on the season. He recorded another hit as a pinch-hitter Sunday against the Mets and has reached base safely in five of his past seven games.

"I don't know the exact formula, but the one thing I've been trying to do is ... get extra work, especially hitting-wise and doing drill work. I'm hitting in the cage, keeping my swing, mechanics-wise, in order to stay sharp," he told MLB.com on Sunday. "I'm trying to do whatever I can to stay sharp without playing."

Lombardozzi started four games at second base last week when Danny Espinosa was sidelined and went 6 for 18 with two doubles and three RBI.

We want to help this team win.”
