John Lamb decent in first start

John Lamb allowed two runs on three hits and a walk with five strikeouts over five innings Saturday against the A's.

Fantasy Impact

Lamb is taking over as a starter for the Angels given their bevy of injuries. He wasn't bad, and he was also pretty good in Triple-A prior to the call-up. He is a player to monitor in deeper leagues depending on how long he remains in the rotation.

John Lamb allows two homers over six innings

John Lamb allowed home runs to Leonys Martin and Franklin Gutierrez among four other hits in six innings of work against the Mariners on Saturday. He walked three, struck out three, and was charged with four runs (three earned). Pitching opposite Felix Hernandez is a tall task, and the Reds didn't manage a single run in this one, falling 4-0 for their sixth straight loss, and ninth in 10 games.

Fantasy Impact

Ultimately, Lamb pitched fairly well aside from those those two bad pitches to Martin and Gutierrez, but still fell to 0-2 with the loss. He now owns a 5.40 ERA and 1.65 WHIP across four starts (although those numbers are inflated by the shellacking he took at the hands of the Indians last time out). He isn't a player that you should be interested in adding in anything but the deepest of NL-Only leagues at this point. He'll get a chance to get back on track Friday at Milwaukee.

John Lamb gets crushed by Indians, Reds lose big

Lamb lasted just four innings on Monday night, allowing seven earned runs on 10 hits in Cleveland. He walked two and struck out just one. The bullpen didn't fare much better either, as the Reds blew an early 4-0 lead en route to an eventual 15-6 loss. The loss was Lamb's first decision on the season, and he earned every bit of it.

Fantasy Impact

Lamb had pitched well over his first few starts, allowing just two earned runs in 10 innings of work. All that got thrown out the window on Monday as his ERA jumped all the way to 5.79. He'll get a chance to redeem himself on Saturday as the Reds host the Mariners.

John Lamb to be skipped, avoid DL

The Reds plan to skip John Lamb's next start due to his thumb injury. Still, the SP isn't expected to require a stint on the disabled list as a result of the injury.

Fantasy Impact

Lamb was forced to leave his most recent start early due to the thumb ailment. He's been solid in two starts since joining the team's rotation, providing a 1.80 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with seven strikeouts in 10 innings pitched.

John Lamb pitches four strong innings, leaves with sprained thumb

Lamb was strong over four innings, allowing just one earned run on a solo home run by Ryan Braun in the first inning. He allowed just one other hit, walked one and struck out three before leaving in the fifth inning with a sprained thumb with the Reds leading 4-1. Steve Delabar took over and promptly gave up a home run to Hernan Perez before the rest of the Reds bullpen completed the implosion over the final four innings in a 5-4 loss.

Fantasy Impact

Here's hoping that Lamb's thumb injury isn't serious. The Reds are already in dire straits as far as pitcher health with Homer Bailey, Anthony DeSclafani, and Raisel Iglesias all on the DL. We should get word about Lamb's status for his next start within the next day or two. Lamb has been solid over two starts, allowing just two earned runs over 10 innings of work. He's a viable option in all bigger mixed formats, but not one that you should be rushing to the wire to add until we hear confirmation that his injury isn't serious.
