Little Progress for Lambo
First baseman/outfielder Andrew Lambo was placed on the 15-day disabled list May 6 with plantar fasciitis in his left foot and has been in Bradenton since. There currently is no timetable for his return due to the nature of the injury.
General manager Neal Huntington said Sunday Lambo is dealing with "lingering pain" and "discomfort" in his foot.
"We’ve continued to work with him on that," Huntington said. "The worst thing for him is to try to push through because it’s just going to linger all year."
The 26-year-old played in 20 games for the Pirates before he was sent to the disabled list and hit just .040 in 27 plate appearances. Lambo's activity has been limited because the injury continues to flare up and responds poorly to baseball work.
