    • Angels' John Lamb: Reinstated from suspension
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lamb has made two starts for Triple-A Salt Lake since completing a 50-game suspension for a second positive test for a drug of abuse, covering 10 innings and giving up four runs on nine hits and six walks. Lamb had been recovering from back surgery to begin the season before he was hit with the suspension in May, but now that he's healthy again, he'll try to resurrect a once-promising career in the upper minors. The lefty isn't a member of the Angels' 40-man roster, so he'll likely need to curb the walks and show an uptick in velocity if he hopes to resurface in the big leagues before 2017 draws to a close.

    • Angels' John Lamb: Hit with 50-game suspension
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lamb (back) was handed a 50-game suspension for testing positive for the second time for a drug of abuse, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. Lamb hasn't pitched in the minors this year after undergoing offseason back surgery, and it looks like he'll have to wait even longer now. The 26-year-old has seen time in the majors over the last two seasons, though he posted a combined 6.17 ERA across 119.2 innings with the Reds.

    • Angels' John Lamb: Cleared to begin throwing
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lamb (back) was cleared to begin a throwing program on Monday, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. Lamb will begin a throwing program in the near future after being cleared by Dr. Robert Watkins. The southpaw hasn't thrown since undergoing offseason surgery on his back in October, so it will likely be a while before he's able to return to game action.

    • Angels' John Lamb: Possible return in second half
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lamb (back) is eyeing a return near the All-Star break, according to the Orange County Register. The Angels signed Lamb this offseason knowing he would have to miss some time after undergoing back surgery last October. The southpaw didn't fair well with the Reds last season, posting a 6.43 ERA in 70 innings. He does posses the ability to strike batters out (8.72 K/9), which is likely what enticed the Angels to sign the 26-year-old. Even with his poor ERA totals, the pitching-deficient Angels will likely give Lamb a look once he is fully rehabbed.

    • Angels' John Lamb: Inks deal with Angels
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lamb (back) signed a minor league deal with the Angels on Friday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Lamb was traded to the Rays earlier in the offseason but was released just two weeks later, and will now land in the Angels' organization. The 26-year-old underwent back surgery in October and is expected to miss the beginning of the season and he'll likely need a few rehab starts under his belt once healthy, so it's a bit unclear when he'll get a chance to help out in the Los Angeles pitching staff. He posted a 5.80 ERA in 2015 and a 6.43 mark last season though, so a major league roster spot isn't guaranteed even when he is healthy.
