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.

Lough (hamstring) will play in a rehab game with High-A Frederick on Sunday and could be activated from the DL after that, MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli reports.

He seems to be almost ready to rejoin the team, and there was even talk that he would be activated for Saturday's game, as he joined the team in Baltimore in between stops on his rehab. Once activated, he will primarily serve as a bench bat and defensive replacement.

Lough joined the Orioles prior to Saturday's game, the Baltimore Sun's Eduardo Encina reports.

The original plan was for Lough to go on a rehab assignment in the minors Saturday, but there's a chance he could be activated from the DL Saturday night. Either way, he's not in the O's lineup Saturday, so any potential fantasy value he could provide will have to wait until Sunday, at the earliest.

Lough (hamstring) will likely begin a rehab assignment Saturday, but there's also a chance he could join the Orioles, Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Lough will play in another intrasquad game Friday, and it appears he'll be ready a bit sooner than expected. Once he joins the Orioles, Lough figures to see semi-regular playing time against right-handed pitching, but his starts against southpaws will likely be few and far between. Last season, 154 of his 174 at-bats came against right-handers.

Lough played four-to-five innings and got four at-bats in an intrasquad game Wednesday and could go on a rehab assignment as early as next week, the Baltimore Sun's Dan Connolly reports.

It is starting to look like next weekend would be the earliest we could see Lough rejoin the O's. He hopes to play nine innings in an intrasquad game Thursday as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury.

Lough (hamstring) had a setback in his recovery, the Baltimore Sun's Dan Connolly reports.

He did not participate in Tuesday's intrasquad game as expected, and manager Buck Showalter said Lough's hamstring is still giving him trouble. It was previously reported that Lough would come off the DL when first eligible Saturday, but Showalter said that is now difficult to envision.

Lough (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list when first eligible Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Lough had been dealing with some minor back and hamstring issues, but neither was expected to force a prolonged absence. Lough appeared in 112 games for the Orioles last season, and should see plenty of at-bats against right-handed pitching upon his return.
