Lambo: Looking To Make Impact Off Of The Bench

PITTSBURGH (KDKA 93-7 The Fan)- Joe Rhoades caught up with Pirates outfielder/first baseman Andrew Lambo on Saturday morning.

Lambo says that everybody wants to play every day, but knows his biggest impact on the 2015 Pirates will be as a contributor off of the bench.

"There needs to be guys that are in the background that are backing up our starters every day. I feel like the best way to contribute to this team this year is adding some depth on the bench. I'm probably going to be looking to come off the bench to do damage," Lambo said.

Lambo talked about how he will try to be more relaxed entering spring training this year.

"I think that I just overlooked that whole thing of just having fun in spring, and trying to realize that everybody's getting the cobwebs off of them and not to really panic too much because everybody's not in A-plus shape," Lambo said.
