Lambo out for extra work, not injury-related
Outfielder Andrew Lambo is out of Triple-A Indianapolis’ lineup again on Friday, meaning that he hasn’t played since May 22 (Sunday). Kyle Stark, the Pirates’ director of player development, said Lambo is not out due to injury.
“We’re continuing to help him make some adjustments to the Triple-A level and picking our spots to help him make those adjustments rather than just competing in games,” Stark said.
Lambo got off to an extremely slow start this year and is hitting just .212 on the season. He has three homers and 15 RBIs in 41 games. With John Bowker, Alex Presley and Gorkys Hernandez also on the Triple-A club, Indianapolis has enough outfielders to have the luxury to be without Lambo as he works through his issues.
