Lambo was called up from Triple-A Nashville on Monday and then placed on the 60-day DL. Lambo is undergoing treatment for testicular cancer and remains without a timetable to return to baseball activities, so the Athletics will be able to open up a 40-man spot by stashing him on the 60-day DL. The 27-year-old's long-term health remains a greater priority than his baseball career at this point, so the Athletics are content to give him as much time away from the game as he needs.
Lambo was placed on the 7-day DL on Tuesday after it was announced he has been undergoing surgery for testicular cancer, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports. This is obviously very unfortunate news for the 27-year-old and he'll figure out the next steps following the results of further testing. Lambo's baseball career will be put on hold for the time being as he works towards a full recovery.
Lambo was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Friday. The 27-year-old outfielder has been shuttled between Triple-A and the majors a couple times in the last week, but he only got one at-bat during his stint at the big league level. He'll head back to Nashville while pitcher Eric Surkamp will join the A's for their series against the Mariners.
Lambo was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Monday. A roster spot opened up for Lambo after Felix Doubront was placed on the 15-day disabled list. The A's outfield is pretty well set, so Lambo will likely act as a reserve outfielder while he's with the major league club.
Lambo was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Saturday. The A's made their final round of cuts Saturday to lock in their finalized Opening Day roster. Lambo, a former fourth-rounder, has only appeared in 59 games in his career. He'll likely slot in as one of the A's outfield options down at Triple-A for the foreseeable future.
