Dodgers' Jake Lamb: Headed for bench role
Lamb is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.
Lamb will retreat to the bench after starting in three of his first four games with the Dodgers while going 3-for-8 with a pair of extra-base hits, a walk, two runs and an RBI. Though the lefty-hitting Lamb may be the Dodgers' preferred pinch-hitting option off the bench versus right-handed pitching, his path to a regular lineup spot has likely closed with Mookie Betts (rib) coming off the injured list Sunday and with Chris Taylor (foot) seemingly on track to rejoin the lineup for Monday's series opener with the Rockies....

Dodgers' Jake Lamb: Contract selected
Lamb had his contract selected by the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Lamb joined Los Angeles on a minor-league deal in March and reported to Triple-A Oklahoma City after failing to make the Opening Day roster. The 31-year-old has a .290/.395/.537 slash line with 15 home runs and 50 RBI in 61 games for Oklahoma City this season, and he'll join the big-league roster while Zach McKinstry (neck) heads to the injured list....

Dodgers' Jake Lamb: Reassigned to minor-league camp
Lamb was reassigned to minor-league spring training Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Lamb made a strong case for a roster spot this spring by slashing .333/.379/.667 with two homers, three triples, five runs, two RBI and a walk across 12 Cactus League games. He'll report to Triple-A Oklahoma City to begin the year but should be in the mix to join the major-league club to provide additional depth at some point.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Jake Lamb: Making push for roster spot
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that Lamb is making a "great case" for an Opening Day roster spot, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Lamb has been one of the team's best hitters in Cactus League play, slashing .375/.423/.750 with two home runs, three doubles and two RBI across 26 plate appearances. The 31-year-old hit 59 combined homers over the 2016 and 2017 seasons with Arizona but hasn't played in more than 78 major-league contests in any campaign since. If he does indeed break camp with Los Angeles, he'll likely serve as a power bat off the bench while drawing an occasional start at first base or DH.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Jake Lamb: Invited to Dodgers' camp
Lamb joined the Dodgers as a non-roster invitee Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Lamb hit .248/.345/.498 in 2016 and 2017, but he's been nowhere close to that level since then, struggling to a .203/.308/.355 line over the last four years. He hasn't posted a batting average above .200 since 2018. The 31-year-old did show a bit of pop last season, posting a career-best 11.6 percent barrel rate, but that also came with a career-worst 30.0 percent strikeout rate. It would be a surprise if he's able to carve out a significant role on a talented Dodgers roster.... See More ... See Less
Jake Lamb: Reaches free agency
The Blue Jays granted Lamb his release Wednesday after he cleared outright waivers.
With all of Santiago Espinal, Cavan Biggio and Breyvic Valera returning from the injured list within the past week, the Blue Jays no longer had a need at third base for Lamb, who was designated for assignment Thursday. After going unclaimed off waivers, Lamb determined he was better off getting a head start on finding a new home in 2022 rather than sticking around as a member of the Toronto organization....

Blue Jays' Jake Lamb: DFA'd Thursday
Lamb was designated for assignment Thursday by the Blue Jays.
The 30-year-old will either report to Triple-A Buffalo or be released. He had struggled to a .129 batting average in September while only hitting three extra-base hits in 31 at-bats. The move clears space for the return of Breyvic Valera from the COVID-related injured list Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jake Lamb: Not in Tuesday's lineup
Lamb isn't starting Tuesday's game against the Rays.
Lamb went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Monday, and he'll retreat to the bench for the third time in the last four games. Breyvic Valera will start at the hot corner and bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jake Lamb: On bench again Tuesday
Lamb is not starting Tuesday against the Rays.
He'll sit for the second night in a row despite Tampa Bay sending right-hander Drew Rasmussen to the mound. Breyvic Valera draws the start at third base and will bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jake Lamb: Takes seat vs. lefty
Lamb is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rays.
Though the Rays are deploying right-hander Collin McHugh as an opening pitcher Monday, southpaw Ryan Yarbrough is slated to cover the bulk of the innings in relief. As a result, the lefty-hitting Lamb will take a seat, opening up a start at third base for his short-side platoon mate, Breyvic Valera.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jake Lamb: Smacks seventh homer
Lamb went 1-for-5 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Sunday's 22-7 win over Baltimore.
Compared to some of his teammates, Lamb had a rather pedestrian Sunday, but he still made a contribution in the blowout win. He's up to seven homers, 18 RBI, 25 runs scored and three doubles across 157 plate appearances between the Blue Jays and the White Sox this year. The 30-year-old is still most likely to come off the bench as a depth option at the corner infield and corner outfield positions.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jake Lamb: Gets breather for Game 2
Lamb isn't starting the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.
Lamb was productive in Saturday's matinee, going 2-for-2 with a double, three RBI, a run and a walk. Breyvic Valera will take over at the hot corner and bat ninth.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jake Lamb: Takes seat Thursday
Lamb isn't starting Thursday's game against the Yankees.
Lamb started each of the last two games but went 0-for-5 with a run, an RBI and two walks. Kevin Smith will start at the hot corner and bat ninth Thursday for Toronto.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jake Lamb: Overtakes Smith on depth chart
Lamb will start at third base and bat eighth Wednesday against the Yankees.
For the second game in a row, Lamb will get the nod at third base over Kevin Smith while the Blue Jays oppose a right-handed starting pitcher (Luis Gil). Lamb turned in a modest line (0-for-2 with a walk) in Tuesday's 5-1 win, but that looks like it'll be enough to keep him ahead of Smith on the depth chart for now. Since being called up from Triple-A Buffalo in mid-August, Smith has gone 3-for-30 (.100 average) while striking out at a 29.4 percent clip.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jake Lamb: Joins active roster
Lamb was added to the Blue Jays' active roster Saturday and will be available off the bench against Oakland.
Lamb should serve as a bench bat for the Blue Jays down the stretch, though he could also see some time at third base while Cavan Biggio (elbow/back/neck) and Santiago Espinal (hip) are both out. Lamb's 100 wRC+, the product of a .212/.321/.389 slash line, in 43 games for the White Sox before he was designated for assignment Wednesday isn't particularly impressive, but it was significantly better than what he'd accomplished over the previous three seasons, when he failed to reach 80 in that category....

Blue Jays' Jake Lamb: Claimed by Blue Jays
Lamb was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Friday.
Lamb was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Wednesday, but he'll find a spot on Toronto's 40-man roster. The 30-year-old was on the active roster for nearly a month after he was reinstated from the injured list in early August but saw sporadic playing time. The Blue Jays haven't yet announced whether he'll report to the minors or join the active roster, but he's unlikely to play a significant role if he reports to the big-league club.... See More ...

White Sox's Jake Lamb: Designated for assignment
Lamb was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Wednesday.
Lamb had sporadic playing time with the major-league club and had appeared in just two of the last six games. He slashed .212/.321/.389 with six homers, 20 runs and 13 RBI across 43 games in the big leagues this year but will now be cast off the 40-man roster to help make room for Romy Gonzalez, whose contract was selected Wednesday....

White Sox's Jake Lamb: Drives in three Tuesday
Lamb went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run, an additional run scored and a walk in Tuesday's 9-0 victory versus Oakland.
Lamb got the most out of his only hit of the contest, crushing a 415-foot three-run homer to center field in the second inning. The long ball was his first since returning from a a long stint on the injured list Aug. 6. He is used mainly off the bench these days thanks in part to a paltry .219 batting average.... See More ...

White Sox's Jake Lamb: Starts for Moncada
Lamb started at third base for a resting Yoan Moncada and went 1-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's 1-0 loss to Minnesota.
This was Lamb's first start since being reinstated from the injured list last Friday, although he did appear twice as a pinch hitter. He had been part of the rotation that filled in at left field when Eloy Jimenez was on the injured list, but Lamb suffered an injury himself and now has reduced playing time with Jimenez healthy....

White Sox's Jake Lamb: May rejoin team Friday
Lamb (quadriceps) was not in the lineup for Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday and is expected to rejoin the White Sox on Friday.
Lamb, who landed on the injured list with a right quad strain June 29, has been on a lengthy rehab assignment due to a lack of room on the big-league roster. He's played 16 games for the Knights, generating 61 at-bats. "Reports on him are very good. He's also added third-base play to the outfield play," manager Tony La Russa said before Thursday's game. "I think his rehab time is about out, so a decision on him will be coming pretty quick. You may see him sooner rather than later." Lamb was part of the crew that helped fill in for the injured Eloy Jimenez in left field earlier this season but has experience at each corner infield position.... See More ... See Less
