Rockies' Peter Lambert: Throws sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert (elbow) threw a simulated game at Coors Field on Wednesday, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

Lambert threw a pair of 20-pitch innings while facing hitters Wednesday, and he's slated to throw another simulated game before the Rockies determine whether he's ready to take another step in his recovery. Manager Bud Black said after Wednesday's throwing session that he still expects the right-hander to pitch in a major-league game this season, but he'll presumably require several rehab appearances before he's cleared to return.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Set to face hitters Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert (elbow) will face live hitters Friday in Los Angeles, Thomas Harding of reports.

Lambert has been working his way back from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in July 2020. This latest news mark the most encouraging update yet for the right-hander, as it signals that he could be ready for a minor-league rehab assignment in the near future. If Lambert continues to progress well, he could become an option to pitch for the big club during the season's final month.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Resumes mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert (elbow) was recently cleared to resume throwing bullpen sessions, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Lambert will advance to the next phase in his rehab program following July 2020 Tommy John surgery after he experienced no setbacks while throwing off flat ground. The right-hander should gradually increase the intensity of his bullpen sessions over the next few weeks before testing himself against hitters in live batting practice at some point in June. The 24-year-old will have an outside chance to return from the 60-day injured list late in the second half of the season, but the Rockies likely won't be counting on him to fill a rotation spot.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Placed on 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Saturday.

Lambert's placement on the 60-day injured list is simply procedural, as the right-hander is expected to miss most of the 2021 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in July 2020. However, Lambert remains on track in his rehab process and could return to game action late in the 2021 campaign.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: On track in Tommy John rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert (elbow) has been regularly taking part in long-toss throwing off flat ground during spring training, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

The Rockies appear to be pleased with how Lambert is advancing through his throwing program as he makes his way back from the Tommy John surgery he required last July. He could be ready to begin mound work by the end of the spring, which would likely put him on track to make his return to game action at some point late in the second half of the season. Colorado will likely place Lambert on the 60-day injured list shortly before Opening Day.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies announced Thursday that Lambert (elbow) recently underwent Tommy John surgery and was placed on the 45-day injured list.

Lambert had previously developed a forearm strain late in spring training and apparently didn't fully move past the issue four months later at summer camp, prompting him to undergo the corrective procedure. Given the timing of his surgery, Lambert appears set to miss the entire 2021 campaign while rehabbing the elbow injury, though he should back to full strength for spring training in 2022.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Set to resume throwing in May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies pitching coach Steve Foster said Wednesday that Lambert (forearm) is progressing through a rehab program and on track to resume throwing in 3-to-4 weeks, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Had the MLB season started on March 26 as originally scheduled, Lambert's moderate right forearm strain might have made him a candidate to open the campaign on the 60-day injured list. Due to the league's ongoing hiatus, however, Lambert will be able to recover from the injury without missing much, if any, game action. If he's able to throw in early May as anticipated, Lambert would likely require around a month to re-condition his arm to handle a starter's workload.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Out with forearm strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert will miss significant time with a forearm strain, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

The team is awaiting more results from tests and scans for a more definitive diagnosis, but this is certainly a situation that could lead to Tommy John surgery. Lambert should be considered out indefinitely and there is a chance he won't pitch at all this season.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Awaiting test results
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert underwent tests on his tight right forearm Wednesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Lambert left Tuesday's game against the Reds due to the injury. His expected return date should become clearer once the results of the tests are known.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Nursing forearm tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert was pulled from Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Reds after experiencing forearm tightness, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

The right-hander figures to undergo additional testing, but for now he remains without a timetable for his return. Lambert struggled before leaving the game, allowing four hits and one walk over 1.1 innings.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Exits with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert was removed from Tuesday's game against the Reds with an undisclosed injury, Thomas Harding of reports.

The 22-year-old visited with a trainer during the fifth inning before slowly walking to the clubhouse. Lambert gave up four hits, including a home run, and issued one walk across 1.1 innings in relief Tuesday. It is not certain exactly what caused the right-hander to leave the game so abruptly, but more information should be released following further evaluation.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Makes mechanical adjustment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert spent the offseason reworking his mechanics in an effort to increase his fastball velocity and allow his changeup to gain more effectiveness, Thomas Harding of reports.

After getting a callup from Triple-A Albuquerque last June, Lambert found minimal success, turning in a 7.25 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and 5.7 K/9 across his 19 starts. Those poor results prompted the Rockies to have him skip his final start of the season in September so he could get a head start on modifying his delivery in 2020, something he hopes can make him a full-time contributor in the Colorado rotation. Competing with the likes of Antonio Senzatela, Jeff Hoffman and Chi Chi Gonzalez for one of two available rotation spots this spring, Lambert helped his case for an Opening Day roster berth with a strong outing in his Cactus League debut Tuesday. He kept the Indians off the board in two innings, striking out three while allowing no hits and issuing a walk.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert has been shut down for the season, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

He looked gassed with a 10.43 ERA in four September starts. Lambert made 19 MLB starts and finishes with a 7.25 ERA. Even though he struggled mightily as a rookie, Lambert will likely be given a chance to compete for a rotation spot in the spring. The Rockies may opt for a bullpen game for Lambert's next and final turn in the rotation, which is Friday in San Francisco.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Struggles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert (3-7) was charged with the loss Friday against the Dodgers, lasting just three innings while surrendering five runs on six hits and a walk with three strikeouts.

The right-hander struggled at Dodger Stadium once again, as he's given up 11 runs on 14 hits and three walks in just 4.2 innings over his last two starts there. Lambert held the Dodgers to two runs through the first three innings and had a 4-2 lead entering the fourth. Unfortunately, things quickly spiraled out of control when he allowed a leadoff home run to Corey Seager and then hit Chris Taylor with a pitch. He followed by walking Gavin Lux and then was charged with his own throwing error. His final batter of the night resulted in an infield single by Will Smith. Worse yet, all of his baserunners would come around to score in what turned into a 41-minute, six-run inning. It's been a tough season overall for Lambert, who will carry an unsightly 7.25 ERA and 1.74 WHIP into his last start Thursday at San Francisco.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Shaky win versus Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert (3-6) allowed five runs on five hits and three walks over five innings, earning the win in Saturday's 11-10 win over the Padres.

Lambert didn't strike out a batter in the contest. It's far from a pretty win, but it still counts. The 22-year-old had a 6.98 ERA and 1.71 WHIP over 86.1 innings this season. Lambert's next turn on the mound is expected to be a challenging matchup Friday on the road against the Dodgers.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Allows one run in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert yielded one run on five hits and three walks over five innings Sunday, striking out four batters in the loss to San Diego. He did not factor in the decision.

It wasn't a terribly impressive start, but it was a good turnaround for Lambert after allowing 11 runs combined in his previous two outings. The 22-year-old rookie still owns an ugly 6.86 ERA alongside a 54:32 K:BB. He'll get a rematch against the Padres at home on Saturday.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Shelled by Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert (2-6) was hit with the loss against the Dodgers on Monday, giving up six earned runs on eight hits over 1.2 innings, striking out two and walking two as the Rockies eventually fell 16-9.

The rookie continues to struggle, as he's now given up 11 earned runs and 14 hits over his last two starts. Lambert hasn't been able to find any consistency since his June callup, as he now sports an ugly 7.19 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 50:29 K:BB over 76.1 innings.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Falters in loss to Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert (2-5) was charged with the loss against the Red Sox on Wednesday after allowing five runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out four across 4.1 innings.

Lambert struggled once again, this time giving up a pair of two-run home runs to J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts. The loss was his fifth straight, causing his most recent win against the Cubs on June 11 to become a distant memory. The rookie right-hander, who owns a dismal 6.63 ERA and 1.63 WHIP, will have his work cut out for him once again when he heads to Los Angeles for a Monday matchup at Dodger Stadium.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Struggles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert (2-4) was charged with the loss against the Cardinals on Friday after surrendering four runs (two earned) on six hits and four walks across 4.1 innings.

Command just wasn't there for the 22-year-old rookie, who did not record any strikeouts for the first time this season. After not allowing any home runs over his last 11 innings, Lambert gave up a two-run shot to Marcell Ozuna in the first frame. The right-hander, who made his major-league debut in early June, has not earned a win since a June 11th contest against the Cubs. Across 14 starts, Lambert owns a dire 6.40 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 44:26 K:BB. He'll have his hands full when he faces the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Yields three runs in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lambert allowed three runs on six hits and a walk over six innings Sunday, striking out two batters in the no-decision during the win over Miami.

Though he achieved a quality start that lowered his season ERA to 6.55 in 66 innings, Lambert again wasn't dominant; he's struck out just four batters in his last three starts. Lambert will face the Cardinals on the road Friday.
