(Bridgeport, Conn. - June 5, 2017 ) - Bridgeport Bluefish team officials have announced the signing of former big league outfielder Andrew Lambo.
"Andrew comes to us at a critical point in the first half of the 2017 season," said Bluefish General Manager Paul Herrmann. "We're in the race for first place and think he will be a tremendous help in our quest to clinch a playoff berth."
Andrew Lambo comes to Bridgeport during his 11th season of professional baseball and first in the Atlantic League. He began the 2017 season with Triple-A Nashville (Oakland Athletics) of the Pacific Coast League, appearing in 12 games. Last season, he made a brief appearance at the Major League level, and spent the rest of the season with Nashville.

Lambo began his professional career in 2007 after being selected in the fourth round of the MLB draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers. He spent four seasons within the Dodgers organization, followed by six with the Pittsburgh Pirates and then three with Oakland. He made his Major League debut with the Pirates in 2013, where he spent parts of the next three campaigns. In 60 career Major League games across four seasons, the outfielder recorded one home run, three RBI, and eight runs scored.
