1B,3B - ATL
Jake Lamb went 1-for-2 with an RBI-single in Monday's spring game against the Red Sox.
Lamb is a recent addition to the roster and he could see quite a bit of playing time this year if he can get his bat going. The team will consider playing him ahead of Austin Riley against righties and he can fill in for Freddie Freeman at first-base. The Braves starting eight is settled so watching Lamb this spring will be interesting to see what he brings to the table.
Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports the Braves have reached a contract agreement with 1B/3B Jake Lamb.
The deal is pending a physical but is expected to be a major league contract. Lamb will likely serve as a backup to Freddie Freeman and Austin Riley at the corner infield positions in Atlanta.
Jake Lamb is not the lineup for Game 3 of the ALDS against the Astros on Wednesday.
Lamb will remain out of the lineup for the second consecutive game. He hit third in Game 1 of the ALDS, but hasn’t appeared since. Chad Pinder will draw the start at 3B.
Jake Lamb is batting third and playing third base in the A's' ALDS Game 1 lineup against the Astros.
Not ideal. Oakland is missing star third baseman Matt Chapman right now, and they want Lamb's lefty power bat in the middle of the order against Lance McCullers. Oakland's full lineup is as follows: Tommy La Stella 2B, Marcus Semien SS, Lamb 3B, Mark Canha RF, Matt Olson 1B, Khris Davis DH, Robbie Grossman LF, Ramon Laureano CF, Sean Murphy C.
Jake Lamb went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in the A's 6-2 win over the Mariners in the final game of the regular season on Sunday.
Lamb has excelled with the A's since signing with Oakland following his release by the Diamondbacks in early September. He registered a solid .271/.340/.542 batting line with three home runs and nine RBI in 48 at-bats with the A's.
