Steve Lombardozzi 2B PIT 2 Months

Lombardozzi was traded to the Pirates on Tuesday for cash considerations, Roch Kubatko of reports.

Manny Machado's absence afforded Lombardozzi a chance at semi-regular playing time to start the season, and he hit .292 in 72 at-bats in April, but then saw just a mere one at-bat after the calendar turned to May. His numbers in a larger sample at Triple-A Norfolk left a lot to be desired (.270/.307/.311) and the 26-year-old will likely serve as little more than a last-ditch utility option with his new club.

Lombardozzi cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.

The 26-year-old utility player only posted a .297 OBP in 74 plate appearances with the O's last season before getting demoted to Triple-A. He doesn't hit for much power or steal many bases, so in order for him to be a useful fantasy option in deeper leagues, he needs to play every day and it does not seem like that will happen in Baltimore anytime soon.

Steve Lombardozzi went 3-for-4 with a two-run double in Friday's win over the Phillies.

The three-hit night pulled his batting average up from .220 to .242 on the year. With Danny Espinosa (wrist) ailing, Lombardozzi should get regular playing time at second base over the next few days. He doesn't excel in any one category, but with his multi-position eligibility, he could be useful in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
