The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed outfielder Andrew Lambo on the 15-day disabled list with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. To take his place on the roster, the Pirates have selected INF/OF Steve Lombardozzi, who had to be added to the 40-man roster.
The switch-hitting Lombardozzi is batting .379/.460/.483 in 24 games this season for Indianapolis. He has played both corner outfield positions, as well as 2B, SS and 3B this year. Lombardozzi has played parts of four seasons in the Majors, last with the Baltimore Orioles in 2014. He is a career .266/.297/.341 hitter in 277 games.
Lambo is just 1-for-25 at the plate this year, with a double and two walks.
