..in Andrew Lambo's 2 for 21 spring. At least he has only struck out 3 times. Defense seems to be okay.

I'm now leaning toward McGuinness as a better bet to open with the club.

Lambo hit poorly as a Pirate, hit poorly in winter ball, and is now hitting poorly so far this spring. I just don't like the timing and would rather see him start in AAA, unless we see a sudden turnaround this spring.

He also does have 3 walks in a small sample.

Fair criticism, but then, let's play it fair ... McGuiness hit worse with Texas last year than Lambo did with the Pirates in the exact same sample size, and was a lot worse in AAA. I don't think 20 exhibition game ABs makes him a much more superior option, but it's nice to know there are depth options besides the usual de facto Hague.
