Lough signed a minor-league deal with the Indians on Tuesday.
He will report to Triple-A Columbus and serve as organizational left-handed hitting depth. Lough signed a minor-league deal with the Tigers this past winter but failed to make the Opening Day roster and was released last week after hitting .169/.210/.203 in 63 plate appearances.
Lough was released by the Tigers' Triple-A affiliate Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
The Tigers decided to cut Lough loose after the 31-year-old got off to a slow start with Triple-A Toledo, slashing just .169/.210/.203 across 24 games. He's seen time in the majors in each of the last five seasons, so he'll likely latch on as organizational depth elsewhere.
Lough signed with the Tigers on a minor league contract, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports.
The journeyman outfielder spent a good chunk of time at the major league level with the Phillies last season, although he was ultimately released in August due to posting a sub-.700 OPS both in the majors and with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Although Detroit's center field situation is still pretty murky, it would take an uncharacteristically strong spring from Lough for him to supplant Tyler Collins, Mikie Mahtook, or JaCoby Jones for big-league playing time.
Lough signed a minor league contract with Miami on Monday.
The 30-year-old outfielder will report to Triple-A New Orleans after being released by the Phillies last week. He slashed just .239/.342/.313 in 30 games with Philadelphia this season but could provide outfield depth as the Marlins make their playoff push.
The Phillies released Lough on Tuesday.
Lough had a 30-game stint in the majors this season, but spent the rest of the year at Triple-A Lehigh Valley where he hit .270 with a homer and two steals in 126 at-bats.
Lough was outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.
The Phillies designated Lough for assignment last week to make room for Cody Asche on their roster. Lough will likely need an injury to one of the Phillies' current outfielders to get another shot in the majors this season.
Lough was DFA'd by the Phillies on Thurdsay, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.
With both Mario Hollands and Cody Asche coming off the DL on Thursday, the Phillies will DFA Lough to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. Lough, who's hitting .239 in 67 at-bats on the year, will be subject to waivers, and if he passes through unclaimed he figures to land at Triple-A.
Lough will start in right field and hit leadoff in Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Ryan Lawrence of PhillyVoice.com reports.
Lough is hitting just .136 (3-for-22) this month, but he does have three hits in seven career at-bats against Marlins starter Tom Koehler, so manager Pete Mackanin decided to use him in the leadoff position Wednesday with Koehler on the mound and Odubel Herrera getting a day off.
Lough went 1-for-3 with a strikeout in the Phillies' loss to the Reds on Sunday.
Lough has made just five starts in May as the Phillies look to get rookie Tyler Goeddel more playing time in left field. Lough could lose his roster spot in the next week or two when the Phillies activate Cody Asche off the disabled list.
Lough could see his playing time reduced as manager Pete Mackanin said he intends to give Tyler Goeddel increased playing time, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Goeddel has started three straight games in left field for the Phillies. Mackanin admitted he needs to give Goeddel more playing time over veterans like David Lough and Emmanuel Burris, who have no long-term future with the team. Lough is hitting .263 with a stolen base in 38 at-bats with the Phillies since his recall from the minors. He should still continue to see some action in left as well as right field.
Lough is our of the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins, Matt Gelb of the Phildelphia Inquirer reports.
With left-hander Wei-Yin Chen starting on the bump for the Marlins, the left-hitting Lough will take a seat on the bench. In Lough's absence, Tyler Goeddel will start in left field and bat seventh.
Lough is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Despite right-hander Michael Wacha getting the start for St. Louis, the left-handed Lough will take a seat on the bench in favor of Darin Ruf in left field. This appears to be a regular day off, as he has emerged as one of the few offensive threats the Phillies have at the corner outfield positions with his .281 batting average since being called up.
Lough went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Friday's extra-inning win over the Indians.
Lough is hitting .286 with three RBI and a stolen base in eight games since his recall from Triple-A on Apr. 18. He will continue to see fairly regular playing time as long as he remains productive. The Phillies have received next to nothing offensively from Peter Bourjos and Tyler Goeddel.
Lough is not in the lineup against the Nationals on Wednesday, Ryan Lawrence of the Philly Voice reports.
After starting the first four games following his callup from Triple-A, Lough has been on the bench for three of the Phillies' last four games. It's unclear if this trend will continue for the outfielder, but it definitely hurts his already low value in the short term. Tyler Goeddel will play left field in his place.
Lough is not in the lineup Saturday against the Brewers, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
After starting the last four games, Lough will get the day off as the Phillies go with an outfield of Darin Ruf in left, Odubel Herrera in center and Tyler Goeddel in right.
Lough went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in his first game of the season on Monday.
The veteran outfielder was hitting .280 through six games with Triple-A Lehigh Valley before getting promoted Monday. Lough will have plenty of opportunity in the weak Philadelphia outfield, but he is a career .255 hitter with just 13 home runs and 16 stolen bases in nearly 700 Major League at-bats.
Lough was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and is starting in left field Monday versus the Mets, Ryan Lawrence of the Philly Voice reports.
Lough is taking the spot of Cedric Hunter on the major league roster and will get the start right off the bat. That being said, he's in for quite the test, as the Mets have Noah Syndergaard on the mound Monday evening, making Lough's 2016 debut a fairly difficult one.
Lough is a candidate to be promoted from the minors if the Phillies don't start getting some production from their corner outfielders, Jeff Neiburg of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Cedric Hunter and Peter Bourjos have provided little offensively thus far. Lough is hitting .280 with a double and a stolen base in six games at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Will Venable and Darnell Sweeney are also candidates for a promotion if the Phillies decide to make a move.
The Phillies assigned Lough to minor league camp Tuesday, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Lough hit .256 (11-for-43) with a home run in 18 games this spring. He was in the mix for one of two available bench spots with the Phillies, but will instead open the year at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Lough went 1-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout in Monday's game against the Tigers.
Lough is hitting .310 with a home run in 29 at-bats this spring. He remains in the mix for a bench spot with the Phillies, but may be behind fellow non-roster invitee Cedric Hunter. Both could earn roster spots if Cody Asche and Odubel Herrera are not ready for the start of the regular season.
