News: Lough is healthy in spring training camp after suffering from concussion symptoms during the 2014 season, Britt Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Lough tore it up in spring training games last year, then suffered a concussion early in April. He never hit the disabled list and it was thought that purely due to on-the-field struggles Lough was relegated to a bench role while Delmon Young and Steve Pearce absorbed his playing time. There was no indication on the news wires that the concussion symptoms had lingered. Instead, he was used mostly as a late game defensive player, gathering 174 at-bats in 112 games. Lough is the favorite to win the last outfield spot, but the Orioles appear to have a stronger commitment to left-handed hitting Alejandro De Aza.
