Baltimore Orioles OF David Lough will not face left-handed pitchers this spring for now, with OF Nelson Cruz playing left field against southpaws. "We need to use Nelson's skills to make everybody better," manager Buck Showalter said. "It's possible, right now going in, I don't plan yet on using (Lough) against left-handed pitching. So, you'd have a DH spot for a right-handed hitter. He could evolve into that too, a guy we trust against left-handed pitching. It's also a way to keep everybody involved, too."

Kansas City Royals OF David Lough (quadriceps) is playing at 80-85 percent health, and he'll take the next two games off. Lough left the game early with right quadriceps tightness Sunday, Aug. 4.
Fantasy Tip: Justin Maxwell, who has been platooning with Lough, will see a short-term boost. However, Jarrod Dyson could also factor in.

Kansas City Royals OF Justin Maxwell is expected to share time in right field with OF David Lough.
Fantasy Tip: Lorenzo Cain's (groin) status may push Maxwell to center field for the short term. It's unclear how much Maxwell will play in favor of Lough, but it's probably not enough for him to gain relevance in deep mixed leagues, just yet.

The Kansas City Royals have acquired OF Justin Maxwell from the Kansas City Royals, according to sources.
Fantasy Tip: Maxwell joins a crowded outfield. David Lough and Lorenzo Cain (groin) have been receiving most of the playing time recently, and that seems unlikely to change because of this deal, unless Cain's injury turns out to be serious. Jarrod Dyson is also a factor, though. It's unclear yet what KC gave up. The odds increase that prospect George Springer will debut for Houston in 2013.

Kansas City Royals OF David Lough entered the game hitting .301 Friday, June 28, and he's playing well enough to warrant regular playing time. Lough is starting for the 25th time in the last 32 games Friday. "I'm feeling confident that I (belong) up here and can play every day -- and prove that I can (do that). I feel good," he said.
Fantasy Tip: This is bad news for Lorenzo Cain owners now that the Royals are now carrying five outfielders. As long as Lough continues to play well, it'll eat into Cain's PT.
