John Lamb could be option for Royals rotation in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals starting pitcher prospect John Lamb is on the team's radar for a potential promotion to the majors, if the big-league rotation needs an arm this summer, according to The Kansas City Star.

“If we needed somebody to go up, and there was an opportunity, I don’t think any of us would hesitate to make that recommendation,” assistant general manager J.J. Picollo said.

The former top-100 prospect is 6-1 with a 2.74 ERA through eight starts for Triple-A Omaha. After struggling in his return from Tommy John surgery in 2011, the left-hander is beginning to round into form again.

“His changeup is looking more like the changeup he had prior to surgery, with good arm speed and deception,” Picollo said. “And the curveball’s got better shape. So there’s a lot of things pointing in the right direction. And he’s doing a much better job being aware of the running game as well.”

Raiders LB Khalil Mack seeking more sacks this season
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Raiders second-year linebacker Khalil Mack finished third in the Defensive Rookie of the Year voting in 2014. He racked up 76 tackles.

By any measure, that's a strong rookie season. But Mack is not satisfied with the four sacks he recorded. He is seeking to increase that total.

"I definitely want to get after the quarterback more this year," he told ESPN.com. "I got some hits [in 2014], but people didn't really see what I can do. Those sack numbers I had really weren't me. At the end of the day, you want people to see you at your best."

The Raiders are trying to help Mack, who piled up 40 hurries last year. They are reportedly going to give Mack fewer reps in pass coverage so he can concentrate on rushing the passer.

Report: Mets limiting Steven Matz's pitch count to save for majors
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Mets have limited to Steven Matz to less than 80 pitches in his last two starts to save his arm for the majors, the New York Post reports.

The Mets are currently featuring a six-man rotation, so he doesn't have a clear path to major-league playing time, but Mets officials unconcerned he'll grow frustrated waiting for a promotion.

"I think he realizes, he sees everybody that is up there and knows there is no place to put him," an organizational source told the Post. "If he was going to lose interest, he would have lost it, I think, three or four starts ago."

Matz is 6-3 with a 1.98 ERA and a 70:23 K:BB ratio in 68 1/3 innings with Triple-A Las Vegas in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League.

"It’s like taking a big league guy and throwing him against a rookie ball team," a PCL talent evaluator said. "He just dominates every night he goes out. He’s done everything he’s supposed to do at Triple-A, and it’s a lot easier to evaluate a pitcher in this league, because if they are as good as Matz is in the Pacific Coast League, he is pretty damn good. They don’t hit the ball against him."
