Lough is starting in left field and batting ninth Monday against the Twins, according to Rich Dubroff of Comcast Sportsnet Mid-Atlantc.

Giving Nolan Reimold the day off, Lough gets the start in left field. In 99 at-bats, he's hitting for a .222/.267/.354 slash line and will continue to be used as the occasional starter, pinch hitter and defensive substitute.

Lough is in the starting lineup for game two of Sunday's double header against the Indians and will bat ninth, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com reports.

Lough is replacing Adam Jones in center field, as Jones gets the game off after playing in game one of the doubleheader. Lough has gone hitless in three straight outings since hitting a home run in Jones's absence, so he will look to turn things around on Sunday.

With Adam Jones on the bench, Lough thrived, launching his fourth home run of the season.

The three-run blast was Lough's only hit of the evening, but he did also score two runs in the contest. With Jones banged up, Lough has gotten some extra at bats this month. However, the outfielder is hitting a quiet .226 for the season.

Lough is in Wednesday's lineup against the Phillies, one day after going 1-for-5 with a home run and three RBIs, MASN Sports reports.

Lough is starting for the second day in the row after sitting for 10 days. He is 7-for-11 with three doubles against Philadelphia starter Kevin Correia. Adam Jones is missing his second game in a row, which also plays into Lough's hand. Jones could return to the lineup as soon as Thursday.

Lough, making his fifth straight start, went 1-for-4 in the Orioles' loss to the Astros on Monday night.

With the decision to designated Alejandro de Aza for assignment last week, and the inconsistent production from Travis Snider, Lough is receiving an opportunity to carve out a larger role after being used sparingly for the bulk of the first two months. The early returns have been unimpressive, however, as he's currently carrying a .240/.283/.300 line while going 4-for-17 over the course of the current five-game stretch he's spent in the lineup.

Lough pinch ran Friday, one day after being hit by a pitch in the foot, MASN Sports reports.

Lough remained in Thursday's game and showed no ill effects from the HBP. He did not start Friday, but starts for Lough are rare as it is.

Lough made his first start of the season Wednesday and went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Lough is not in line for a lot of action, but the Orioles gave Steve Pearce the day off. Lough filled in as a late game defensive replacement Monday and Tuesday before getting Wednesday's start. His role will mostly consist of defense and the Orioles could have Lough on the chopping block when Jimmy Paredes is healthy.

Lough has been activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday.

Lough played in a rehab game with High-A Frederick Sunday without incident, so he'll rejoin the club before Monday's contest against the Yankees. He likely won't see regular starts now that he's healthy, but he figures to slot in as a reserve option in the outfield and as the primary backup to Adam Jones in center.

Lough (hamstring) is leading off and starting in left field in a rehab game for Class-A Frederick on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Lough was tentatively scheduled to take this role Sunday, and this announcement confirms the original plan. Should he emerge from the contest free of issues, look for Lough to be activated be the Orioles on Monday.
