Lamb is not starting Saturday against the Brewers. Lamb will hit the bench against lefty Gio Gonzalez. He'd started 11 of the last 12 games, though he's not expected to be in the lineup quite so frequently in the future, as all 12 of those games came against righties. Eduardo Escobar slides to third base in his absence, with Wilmer Flores entering the lineup at second.
Lamb is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at St. Louis. Lamb received the starting nod for the first two games of the series and went 1-for-4 with a home run, two walks and two hit by pitches. Ildemaro Vargas will start at the keystone Sunday, pushing Eduardo Escobar to third base.
Lamb went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-2 win over the Cardinals. He was also hit by pitches twice. Lamb barely played in the first half due to a strained quad, but the 28-year-old slugger seems to be finding his power stroke, hitting his only two homers of the year in his last three games.
Lamb went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer in a 4-2 win over the Rockies on Saturday. It was Lamb's first long ball of the year, and it was enough to force Rockies starter Jon Gray from the game. Lamb is expected to see regular at-bats going forward, with David Peralta's shoulder injury causing a ripple effect on the Diamondbacks' defensive alignment. Lamb is hitting .243/.378/.378 in 13 games this season after missing nearly three months with a quadriceps injury.
Lamb went 1-for-3 with a run scored in Friday's 8-0 win over the Rockies. Lamb started at third base while Eduardo Escobar moved to second. We could see that alignment regularly with David Peralta (shoulder) on the injured list. The Peralta injury moves Ketel Marte to the outfield, leaving second base to Escobar and a regular spot for Lamb at third. Lamb is hitting .158 (3-for-19) since returning from a quadriceps injury.
