Mariners' Jake Lamb: Struggling early in Seattle
Lamb, who went 1-for-3 with a double in a win over the Angels on Monday, is hitting just .167 (2-for-12) in his first five games with the Mariners.
The veteran does have a pair of walks and a run in addition to Monday's two-bagger, but Lamb has also struck out at a 28.6 percent clip with the M's. Lamb saw time at third base and left field Monday, and the start at the hot corner was his first at the position in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jake Lamb: Set to join team Friday
Mariners manager Scott Servais said Lamb won't join the team until Friday's game against the Angels, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Lamb had been serving as a strong-side platoon option in left field or at designated hitter for the Dodgers prior to being acquired by the Mariners on Tuesday, but playing time could be harder to come by in his new organization. Though the Mariners are dealing with injuries to several key players of late, all of Ty France (wrist), Julio Rodriguez (wrist) and Mitch Haniger (ankle) could be back in action within a week. Once all those players are active, the lefty-hitting Lamb likely won't have a path to playing regularly against right-handed pitching.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jake Lamb: Lands with Mariners
Lamb was traded from the Dodgers to the Mariners on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
The acquisition of Joey Gallo left one hitter too many on the Dodgers' roster, so the team decided to deal Lamb to Seattle. Lamb has played almost exclusively against righties this season and has posted an .814 OPS against pitchers who throw with that hand.... See More ... See Less

Lamb isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals, Kirsten Watson of SportsNet LA reports.

Dodgers' Jake Lamb: Steps out of lineup versus lefty
Lamb is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Angels, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dodgers' Jake Lamb: Idle against lefty
Lamb is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Southpaw Matthew Liberatore is on the mound for St. Louis, so the lefty-hitting Lamb will retreat to the bench in favor of the righty-hitting Trayce Thompson. Lamb and Thompson should continue to form a platoon in left field while Chris Taylor is on the injured list due to a small fracture of his left foot.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Jake Lamb: Sits against lefty
Lamb is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.
Lamb has gone 2-for-11 with three walks and a pair of solo home runs while starting in four of the past five games, and he looks like he'll have a path to a regular role against right-handed pitching while Chris Taylor (foot) is on the injured list. He'll likely remain a fixture on the bench against left-handers, however, as he'll take a seat Sunday with southpaw Drew Smyly on the bump for Chicago.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Jake Lamb: Homers again Saturday
Lamb went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Cubs.
Lamb tied the game at 2-2 with his long ball in the seventh inning, and he also made a key catch on defense to end the eighth. This was the 31-year-old's second homer of the season, both of which have come in the last two games. Showing power is a good way for him to claim a starting role in left field while Chris Taylor (foot) is on the injured list. Lamb is batting .263 with three RBI, four runs scored, a triple and a double through eight contests.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Jake Lamb: Goes yard in win
Lamb went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, a walk and a hit-by-pitch in Friday's 4-3 extra-inning win over the Cubs.
Lamb brought the Dodgers within a run with a seventh-inning blast. The 31-year-old has been able to maintain semi-steady playing time against right-handed pitching since Chris Taylor (foot) went on the injured list. Through 20 plate appearances, Lamb has a homer, a triple, a double, two RBI, three runs scored and a 4:7 BB:K in seven contests.... See More ... See Less

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
