Lough was outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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 has hit .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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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 a RBI in Friday's extra-inning win over the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Lough is hitting .286 (8-for-28) with three RBI and a stolen base in eight games since his recall from Triple-A. 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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.
