      Pirates GM Neal Huntington thinks OF Andrew Lambo is a nice fit

      Pirates outfielder Andrew Lambo has the support of his general manager Neal Huntington, according to the team's official website. "Andrew has put together two really strong years at Triple-A," Huntington noted. "If you look at the numbers at the end of the year, he actually outplayed [Gregory] Polanco. Most people don't remember that, they think of him like, 'At 25, he's kind of an afterthought.' But he's a player we still like and believe could fit in as a nice piece for us." That confidence has spread as Lambo looks forward to contributing at a high level. "This year I'm confident, physically and mentally focused and ready," Lambo said. "Last year I was unprepared, not confident." The 26-year-old has a batting average of .280 in the minors. He is looking to continue to make strides while in the majors. "I'm not going to tell you I'm going to hit .700. But I'll tell you what: I'm not going to worry about it if I hit .100," said Lambo, who continues to split defensive drills between the outfield and first base. "I'm worried about just swinging well, not worried about the results."

      Snider trade should free up at-bats for Pirates' Andrew Lambo

      Saving money wasn't the only motivation for the Pirates to trade outfielder Travis Snider to the Orioles earlier this week, according to Pittsburgh columnist Dejan Kovacevic. Pirates general manager Neal Huntington is eager to see what Andrew Lambo can do with 200-300 plate appearances at the MLB level, so trading Snider helped free up at-bats. "I'm excited. I'm beyond excited for the opportunity," Lambo said. "At the same time, I liked Travis. Everyone liked Travis. I know he was a big part of the team, a big part of the clubhouse and … well, I just have to be myself. I have to be the player, the person I am and show up every day to help the Pirates win. I'm grateful to be getting that chance." Lambo was sent to the minors last season after a rough spring training. He battled through a thumb injury, but once he returned to 100 percent, Lambo got on track offensively. He hit .328 with a .563 slugging percentage and .952 OPS in 61 games for Triple-A Indianapolis before he was back in the majors in late August. "The way I look at it, I battled back, I came back," he said. "I was there in Pittsburgh playing in games that mattered in front of full houses and against the Cardinals or Johnny Cueto, and I feel like I grew up there, like I matured." Lambo will now go to spring training looking to grab a bench spot as a fourth outfielder/backup first baseman. "Honestly, this is the first time in my career I just relaxed, checked out a little bit," he said. "I was always running around the Arizona Fall League or winter ball and now … I don't know, I feel like this has been good. I feel hungry. I want to get out there and prove … not to everybody but to my team that I can do the job. I can't wait for that."
