ANDREW LAMBO RUMORS & GOSSIP

Andrew Lambo < 500

Every once in a while, there’s a time dilation effect with prospects that makes it hard to properly figure out exactly what sort of player you have on your hands. Andrew Lambo hasn’t been on a Top 100 prospects list since 2009. He actually first hit Double-A and played in the Arizona Fall League the year before that in 2008. The Pirates traded for him at the deadline in the James...

Alvarez Beating the Shift, Cervelli’s Defense, Worley’s Improvements, Lambo Comfortable

One of the most encouraging signs in today’s Pirates game against the Toronto Blue Jays came in the second inning. Pedro Alvarez came up to the plate, and faced a shifting Toronto defense. For the second day in a row, he beat the shift by going opposite field. This time he hit a fastball away, and hit it hard right to where the third baseman normally would be without the shift...

Does Andrew Lambo Have the Final Bench Spot Locked Down?

For most of the off-season, it looked like the Pittsburgh Pirates had every spot on their bench locked up. Then came the trade of Travis Snider to the Baltimore Orioles, which put one of the spots in question, and gave us one semi-real roster battle for Spring Training on the position player side of things (the disclaimer is that it might not be much of a battle, as I’ll outline...

Be patient Pirates fans, Tallion, Polanco and Lambo will be up soon

Three games into the season and the Pirates are 2-1. Many Pirates fans who have been upset with the Pirates lack of offseason moves have been begging the organization to give players like Andrew Lambo, Gregory Polanco and Jameson Tallion chances to spice up the team. Even after impressive spring trainings from all of them, the Pirate’s front office appears to be content with keeping...

Pirates send Andrew Lambo, among others, to minor league camp

The Pirates reassigned Andrew Lambo, Jared Hughes, Jaff Decker, and a eight other players were all sent to Triple-A or other minor league camps this morning. There isn't really much news beyond Lambo's reassignment, which has only really seemed like a possibility in the last week or so. I wrote quite a bit about this and why I think time spent on Ishikawa is just wasted time...

Pirates appear dangerously close to giving regular season at-bats on Travis Ishikawa

Travis ishikawa is having nice spring and has good chance to beat out andrew lambo to share 1B with gaby sanchez. #pirates — Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) March 24, 2014 I've said this once or twice on Twitter and with Mike Grau on TribLIVERadio, but not on the blog, so I'll put it in (virtual) writing now: if the Pirates start 2014 off with Travis Ishikawa as the big end...

News and notes: Trade rumors, Stewart/Sanchez, Lambo

This looked like it was going to be a mostly drama-free spring for the Pirates — and to this point, I would say it still has been — but recently a few issues have popped up that could cause the Bucs to make some last minute changes. Opening Day is less than two weeks away now, so it’s getting close to roster-crunch time. There are some trade rumors surrounding Vin Mazzaro...
