Athletics' Jake Lamb: Puts together productive weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb, who went 1-for-3 with a two-run single in a loss to the Giants on Sunday, delivered five total RBI on just three hits, including a home run, in the three-game weekend series against San Francisco.

The slugging third baseman squared up on his second home run in an Athletics uniform in Saturday's 6-0 win, and he was one of the sole bright spots for Oakland in Sunday's disastrous 14-2 loss. One of the keys to Lamb looking like a drastically different hitter than the one the Diamondbacks essentially gave up on just over a week ago has been immediate reduction in strikeout rate; he's whiffed just three times over his first 23 plate appearances with the A's after going down on strikes 17 times in 50 plate appearances with Arizona.

Athletics' Jake Lamb: Oakland resurgence continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb, who was originally out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies, went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over Colorado.

The apparently rejuvenated slugger continued to look like a completely different player than the one whose 5-for-43 line earlier in the season led to his release from the Diamondbacks. Lamb is now 5-for-12 with a home run, two RBI, a walk and three runs in three games with the Athletics, with his caliber of performance especially timely in the wake of Matt Chapman's season-ending hip injury.

Athletics' Jake Lamb: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies.

Though the Athletics are opposing a right-hander (German Marquez) in the series finale, the lefty-hitting Lamb will take a seat after two straight turns as Oakland's designated hitter. He thrived at the dish in his first two games with the club, going 3-for-7 with a home run, two doubles and three runs scored. Expect Lamb to continue to see steady work against right-handed pitching for the remainder of the regular season, and likely the playoffs as well if Chad Pinder (hamstring) is still sidelined.

Athletics' Jake Lamb: Launches homer in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored during a 9-0 win over the Mariners in the second game of Monday's doubleheader.

Making his Oakland debut, Lamb took Brady Lail deep in the sixth inning for the final run of the day, and his first homer of the year. The 29-year-old figures to get semi-consistent work between third base and DH with Matt Chapman (hip) on the shelf, but Lamb's .380 OPS in 50 plate appearances for Arizona this season prior to being DFA'd last week isn't encouraging from a fantasy standpoint.

Athletics' Jake Lamb: Making debut at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb will serve as the designated hitter for Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Mariners, Lauren Smith of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

The team officially announced Lamb's signing earlier in the day, and he'll see his first action out of the No. 6 spot in the lineup. He slashed .116/.240/.140 with an RBI across 18 games earlier this season with Arizona.

Athletics' Jake Lamb: Joins Oakland roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Athletics officially announced Lamb's signing Monday and added him to the 28-man active roster ahead of their doubleheader with the Mariners, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Lamb agreed in principle to a deal with Oakland a couple of days ago after being released by the Diamondbacks, and after clearing the COVID-19 intake testing process, he'll be ready to make his team debut Monday. The Athletics haven't revealed their plans for the lefty-hitting Lamb, but he could have a good chance to emerge as a strong-side platoon option at third base after Matt Chapman (hip) recently underwent season-ending surgery. Nate Orf and Vimael Machin will also be in the mix for playing time at the hot corner as the Athletics look to replace Chapman. Lamb isn't in the lineup for Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Mariners, as Orf draws the start at third base.

Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Set to join Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb is expected to sign a contract with the A's once he officially clears release waivers, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The 29-year-old was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Thursday and has yet to officially clear release waivers, but once he does he's expected to sign with the A's. It's natural fit for Oakland, as it just lost Matt Chapman (hip) for the season and Chad Pinder (hamstring) is likely headed to the injured list. Lamb went 5-for-43 with one double, six walks and 17 strikeouts in 18 games before being DFA'd, but he could provide some depth for the A's at third base following the injuries.

Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Designated for assigment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb was designated for assignment Thursday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

Lamb had gotten just one start this month and is hitting .116 with zero home runs and a 34 percent strikeout rate in 43 at-bats. It's quite possible he will catch on elsewhere for a two-week audition down the stretch. Pavin Smith will take his place on the active roster.

Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Starts at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb served as the designated hitter Sunday and went 0-for-2 with a walk and was caught stealing in a 4-1 loss to San Francisco.

The Diamondbacks gave Lamb what is becoming an increasingly rare start the day before the trade deadline. It was his third start in eight games, and he's hitless in all three (0-for-8). He's a pending free agent and a prime candidate to be traded Monday, although his .100/.217/.125 does not make Lamb an attractive target.

Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Records two hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb started at third base and went 2-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in Tuesday's 10-1 win over Oakland.

The surging Diamondbacks' offense, which has produced 63 runs over the last eight games, rubbed off on Lamb, who entered the game with just two hits in 29 at-bats (.069). He got the rare start in the field, as everyday third baseman Eduardo Escobar covered second base for the resting Ketel Marte.

August 17, 2020 06:12 PM
Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb isn't in the lineup Monday against the Athletics.

Even though right-hander Chris Bassitt is on the mound for Oakland, Lamb will take a seat for the sixth time in the past seven games. Kevin Cron will serve as the designated hitter Monday.

August 10, 2020 05:32 PM
Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb will not start Monday's game against the Rockies.

Lamb will sit even with a righty (Jon Gray) starting for Colorado. With just two hits in 24 at-bats this season, he's hardly earned a regular role. Christian Walker starts at first base Monday, with David Peralta serving as the designated hitter.

Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Sitting for series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb is not in the lineup Sunday against the Padres.

The 29-year-old started the past two games and went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts, extending his hitless streak to 22 at-bats. Daulton Varsho will serve as the designated hitter Sunday. Lamb's ongoing struggles figure to continue limiting his playing time.

Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Can't break slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb made his second consecutive start Saturday and went 0-for-2 in a 3-2 win over the Padres.

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic that he wanted to give Lamb a string of at-bats to dislodge him from a slump. "I felt like I could pile up a couple of days in a row for Jake and we could get that sweet swing working again in a way that we've seen it work," Lovullo said. After a double and a walk in the season opener, Lamb is 0-for-22 with one walk, one hit-by-pitch and 10 strikeouts.

Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Out of lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb is not starting Thursday against the Astros.

Lamb, who is just 1-for-18 with eight strikeouts this season, will sit for a fifth straight game. Andy Young is serving as the DH in this one.

Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros.

Lamb served as the Diamondbacks' primary designated hitter over the first several games this year, but he's seen his playing time decrease recently since he's gone just 1-for-18 with a double and eight strikeouts to begin the year. He should be available as a pinch hitter once again. However, Jon Jay will start as the designated hitter and bat eighth.

August 4, 2020 03:52 PM
Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Astros.

Lamb started seven of the Diamondbacks' first eight games but now finds himself on the bench for the third straight contest. He's gone just 1-for-16 at the plate, which certainly isn't helping his case for playing time. Christian Walker starts at first base Tuesday, with Daulton Varsho serving as the designated hitter.

August 3, 2020 01:52 AM
Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Sitting again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb is not in the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers.

Lamb finds himself on the bench for the second straight contest with Clayton Kershaw (back) set to take the mound for Los Angeles. Lamb is 1-for-16 with two walks and eight strikeouts through 19 plate appearances. Eduardo Escobar will serve as the designated hitter Sunday while Ildemaro Vargas starts at third base.

August 1, 2020 04:04 PM
Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

Lamb recently lost a path toward playing time when Christian Walker returned to action at first base and forced Lamb into primarily playing at designated hitter. Walker will serve as the designated hitter Saturday with Ildemaro Vargas starting at first base and batting second.

Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Could lose at-bats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb started at designated hitter and went 0-for-2 in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Dodgers.

With Christian Walker seemingly over a groin injury, Lamb slides from first base into primarily a DH role. He hit well during summer camp but is off to a slow start in the regular season. With just one hit and eight strikeouts over 15 at-bats, Lamb could be susceptible to losing plate appearances. He's not the only Diamondback slumping to start the season, but manager Torey Lovullo cited the team-wide slump as a factor in calling up prospect Daulton Varsho, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
