    Why You Can't DFA David Lough

    Some posters have been calling for David Lough to be DFAd. They think he would not be claimed. 

    "Not if they have to keep him on the 25 man roster, which they would.  Its hard to justify keeping at guy with a 455 OPS on the 25 man roster."

    Not at all. When it is such an incredibly small sample size and there is reason to believe health entered in to it. He also has a track record of better production. His defense alone and his ability to play center get him a look ten places even if he is sub par offensively.

    It's Still Early. And the Orioles are in First Place.

     

    DrungoHazewood says

    "A month ago we were discussing whether he'd repeat his nearly 3-win 2013 season. It's kind of ridiculous to think a one-month slump slashes that (admittedly optimistic) forecast to "nobody in MLB would put him on the 25 man."
