Lough signed a minor-league deal with the Indians on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

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 on Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

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 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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

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.
