Lambo, Liz, Hughes, Caminero expected to make Pirates' roster
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Andrew Lambo, Radhames Liz, Jared Hughes and Arquimedes Caminero are all expected to make the Pirates' Opening Day roster, manager Clint Hurdle announced on Saturday, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Lambo won the final bench spot on the roster despite a .183 batting average this spring. Lis and Caminero are expected to serve as middle relievers, while Hughes will serve as a setup man.

Pirates GM Neal Huntington thinks OF Andrew Lambo is a nice fit
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

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
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.”

Fantasy Analysis | 1409803345
Andrew Lambo has deep sleeper appeal
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Andrew Lambo may not be Gregory Polanco, but if you resent him for starting over the superior prospect, you may miss out on some cheap power down the stretch. As I pointed out in my latest blog post profiling some of the more notable September callups, Lambo has made a name for himself in the minors, hitting 32 homers for a .922 OPS last year and following it up with a .923 OPS this year.

Now, plenty of players have hit bunches of homers in the minors and never amounted to anything in the big leagues, and at age 26, Lambo is nearing his expiration date as a prospect. But injuries and off-the-field issues delayed him a few years. He was considered a prospect of note when the Dodgers traded him along with James McDonald for Octavio Dotel back in 2010. To start him over Polanco with a playoff spot on the line, the Pirates must see something they like in him even now.

Do I honestly think it'll last? No. As I've pointed out elsewhere, I think Polanco offered more good than bad in his first stint with the Pirates, and I think they'll eventually decide he's the better option. But particularly in NL-only leagues, Lambo is worth a flier just in case that doesn't happen.

The Pirates have called up Andrew Lambo Friday.

The club wanted to get another bat on the bench for the weekend series, and decided to promote Lambo. He'll take Gerrit Cole's spot on the roster. Cole will return to the club when rosters expand September 1.
