Lamb entered Saturday's game when Billy Hamilton departed early due to an oblique injury. He went 1-for-2 with a double and two RBI in a 4-3 loss to Detroit. The lefty-hitting Lamb has been a fixture in left field recently, particularly against right-handers, but took a seat Saturday with Andrew Vaughn activated from the COVID-19 protocols list and a lefty working for Detroit. He replaced Hamilton in the fifth inning and slotted in at right field, while Danny Mendick moved to cover center. Lamb has hit safely in nine of 10 games, going 11-for-28 (.393) with two doubles, three home runs, six RBI and eight runs. He's part of a group -- Vaughn, Hamilton and Leury Garcia are the others -- that is covering for the injured Eloy Jimenez (pectoral) and Luis Robert (hip).
Lamb started in left field and went 1-for-3 in Friday's 9-8 win over the Tigers. Lamb made his fifth straight start and sixth in the last seven games, all in the outfield and against right-handers. The lefty-hitting corner infielder has seen more time in the outfield than the infield in 2021, largely due to injuries. He's mostly played left field, which has become a revolving door after Eloy Jimenez's pectoral injury. More recently, the White Sox placed Andrew Vaughn on the COVID-19 list. Add in recurring hamstring issues for right fielder Adam Eaton and the need for Lamb's competitors to fill in at center field for Luis Robert (hip), and there are available at-bats in the outfield. After a slow start to the season, Lamb has picked it up recently, going 10-for-26 with three home runs over the last nine contests.
Lamb started in left field and went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Tigers. Lamb filled in for Andrew Vaughn, who was placed on the COVID-19 injured list. His second-inning blast, one of four solo home runs by the White Sox, turned out to be the game-winning hit. While Vaughn is out, Lamb will share left field with Billy Hamilton and Leury Garcia.
Lamb started in right field and went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against Baltimore. Lamb, who came up to the big leagues as a corner infielder, made his eighth appearance as an outfielder this season. In addition to injuries in left and center field, the White Sox are also navigating an injury to right fielder Adam Eaton, who sat out both ends of the doubleheader with a hamstring issue. That gave Lamb an opportunity for at-bats, and he delivered his third home run and second in his last four games. He's hit safely in all four of those games, going 5-for-13 with three extra-base hits, three RBI and four runs.
Lamb made his first career start in right field Sunday and went 1-for-4 in a loss to the Yankees. Lamb, a corner infielder before this season, has started seven games in left field this season but was moved to right field in Yankee Stadium, which has a challenging left field. As such, Adam Eaton, normally the starter in right, moved to left field. Lamb has a modest three-game hitting streak (3-for-10) and raised his average to .194.
