Lambert didn't factor into the decision against the Diamondbacks on Monday, giving up three earned runs on four hits over five innings, recording one strikeout and walking five in an 8-6 defeat for the Rockies.
Lambert fared better in this contest than he did in his last start when he was rocked for nine earned by the Astros, but he was still erratic with his control in issuing five free passes. The rookie now sports a 6.75 ERA, a 1.60 WHIP and a 42:21 K:BB through his first 60 big-league innings. He'll take the mound next in a home matchup against the Marlins on Saturday.
Lambert (2-3) took the loss Wednesday, coughing up nine runs on seven hits and four walks over three-plus innings while striking out one as the Rockies were routed 14-3 by the Astros.
Jose Altuve and Yuli Gurriel both took the right-hander deep in the first inning, setting the tone for a brutal afternoon. Lambert will carry a 6.87 ERA and 41:16 K:BB through 55 innings into his next start Monday, at home against Arizona.
Lambert tossed six innings Friday, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five in a no-decision versus the Giants.
Lambert's uneven season continues, as Friday's performance is the fourth time he's allowed four or more runs, although the six innings pitched tied his season high. The 22-year-old owns a 5.71 ERA and 1.46 WHIP across 52 innings this season, adding 40 strikeouts. He'll have a tough task ahead when he takes on the Astros on Wednesday for his next scheduled start.
Lambert allowed two runs on six hits with one walk and four strikeouts across five innings during a no-decision against the Reds on Sunday.
The 22-year-old hasn't won a game since June 11, but he's pitched a little better over his last couple outings, posting a 3.87 ERA in his most recent three starts. He still hasn't pitched much, though, so the couple rough outings he had in late June have elevated his ERA. Overall, Lambert is 2-2 with a 5.67 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 46 innings this season. He will take the mound next at home Friday against the Giants.
Lambert (2-2) allowed three runs on nine hits with one walk and eight strikeouts across 5.1 innings while taking a loss against the Nationals on Tuesday.
While Lambert did fail to record a quality start, he did work around nine hits to keep the Rockies in the game through six frames. The Rockies, however, couldn't score against Stephen Strasburg, and the Colorado bullpen allowed the contest to turn into a blowout. Giving up a lot of hits isn't anything new for Lambert, who's yielded a .308 batting average against. Although the eight strikeouts were his most since his season debut June 6, Lambert still owns a 5.93 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 31 strikeouts in 41 innings this season. He will pitch next at the Reds on Sunday.
Lambert is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Nationals.
Rather than reshuffle their rotation after the series opener in Washington was rained out, the Rockies will keep their pitching order intact, as Lambert will just be pushed back a day in the schedule. Lambert owns an ugly 6.06 ERA and 1.40 WHIP over his first seven big-league starts, but he's performed far better on the road than he has at Coors Field. Over 12 innings on the road, Lambert has allowed only four runs while holding opponents to a .285 wOBA.
Lambert won't make his scheduled start Monday, as the game has been postponed due to rain, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
The Rockies have yet to announce their pitching plans for the rest of the week, but there's a chance Lambert will simply have his outing pushed back to Tuesday. Monday's contest will be made up Wednesday as part of a doubleheader.
Lambert (2-1) took the loss Wednesday as the Rockies fell 4-2 to the Astros, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks over five innings while striking out two.
After a promising beginning to his big-league career, Lambert has now given up at least three runs in each of his last four starts, serving up eight homers with an 8:4 K:BB over 17.2 innings during that rough stretch. Three of those outings have been at Coors Field, but it still looks like the 22-year-old may need more minor-league seasoning. It remains to be seen whether he'll keep his rotation spot after the All-Star break, but even if he does, Lambert's leash is likely to be a short one.
Lambert allowed five runs on nine hits with no walks across 4.2 innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Dodgers. He struck out two.
Lambert allowed a pair of solo home runs in the second inning before conceding three more runs via the long ball in the fifth, when he was removed with two outs. His outing resembled that of Walker Buehler on the other side of this high-scoring affair, and he's now allowed 16 earned runs across 12.2 innings over his last three starts. Lambert looks like a different pitcher than the one who impressed in his first two starts, so it remains to be seen if he holds onto his place in the rotation. If he does, he's in line for another tough matchup at home against the Astros.
Lambert didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 5-4 extra-innings loss to the Dodgers, allowing three runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings while striking out one.
The rookie avoided any big rallies but was tagged for single runs in the second, third and fifth innings before hitting the showers with the score knotted 3-3. Lambert will take a 5.85 ERA and 16:4 K:BB through 20 innings into his next start Thursday -- a rematch with the Dodgers back at Coors Field.
Lambert allowed eight runs on nine hits with three strikeouts across three innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Padres. He did not walk a batter.
Lambert was hit early and often in this one and surrendered four extra-base hits while allowing runs in each of his three innings. He needed 69 pitches to complete his outing and was lifted prior to the fourth, which is unfortunate considering the Rockies had scored nine runs at the time. Lambert was much better in his first two starts, but he'll face another difficult matchup as he tries to bounce back in his next scheduled appearance on the road Saturday against the Dodgers.
Lambert (2-0) was the pitcher of record in Tuesday's 10-3 win over the Cubs after limiting the opposition to one run on three hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out three in the 83-pitch outing.
After an impressive showing against the Cubs in Chicago in his major-league debut last week, Lambert returned to action for the rematch at Coors Field. The right-hander was able to overcome the tough venue to roll to his second straight win, though he received a quick hook in part due to his spotty control, as he also hit two batters and threw a wild pitch in addition to issuing two free passes. Lambert's next turn will likely come at Coors Field on Sunday against the Padres.
Lambert is listed as the Rockies' probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Cubs in Colorado.
Given that the Rockies are perennially starved for quality rotation options, it was an easy decision for the club to give Lambert a second turn after he aced his big-league debut Thursday against this same Cubs squad. He worked seven innings in the winning effort, striking out nine while allowing only one run on four hits and one walk. That outing came in Chicago, however, so Lambert's fantasy managers will have to take more of a leap of faith in him while he picks up his first start in Coors Field in the rematch. Lambert will tentatively line up for his second start of the week Sunday against the Padres, which will also take place in Colorado.
Lambert (1-0) picked up the win against the Cubs on Thursday, giving up one earned run on four hits over seven innings, striking out nine and walking one in the Rockies' 3-1 victory.
Making his big-league debut, Lambert was excellent, fanning nine batters and allowing just a single run before exiting the contest after seven innings and 95 pitches. The Rockies need an arm to step up with Kyle Freeland's early-season struggles landing him in Triple-A Albuquerque, and Lambert couldn't have done much more to show he should continue to be the one to fill that spot.
Lambert had his contract selected from Triple-A Albuquerque ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Cubs, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Lambert is poised to make his big-league debut after posting a 5.07 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 51:16 K:BB in 60.1 innings with the Isotopes. While the 22-year-old righty has yet to put things together at the highest level of the minors, he could make a case to stick in the Rockies' rotation for more than one turn with a strong performance given the team's starting pitching struggles this season. To make room for Lambert on the roster, Mike Dunn (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list, while Harrison Musgrave (elbow) was shifted to the 60-day IL.
Lambert will be called up and make his MLB debut Thursday against the Cubs, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Lambert was expected to be called up with Kyle Freeland getting sent to Triple-A Albuquerque, and Newman reports the 22-year-old right-hander has arrived at Wrigley Field and will take the hill Thursday for his big-league debut. He's on the club's taxi squad, so the callup should be made official ahead of Thursday's game, per MLB.com's Thomas Harding. Lambert is considered the Rockies' top pitching prospect, and given the club's starting rotation struggles this season, he has a chance to make a case to stay in the rotation with a good performance.
Lambert could be called up from Triple-A Albuquerque to start Thursday against the Cubs or Friday against the Mets, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
The Rockies haven't announced a replacement in the rotation for the recently demoted Kyle Freeland, but all signs point to Lambert filling the void. Lambert had been scheduled to start Tuesday for Albuquerque, but the Isotopes' decision to scratch him ahead of that game adds fuel to the notion that his next turn will come with the big club. Colorado currently lists Jon Gray as its scheduled starter for Thursday, but Newman notes that it's possible the Rockies push the right-hander so Lambert -- whose last appearance for Albuquerque came May 29 -- doesn't have to wait any longer to resume pitching. In his 11 starts at Triple-A this season, Lambert has posted a 5.07 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 51:16 K:BB across 60.1 innings.
Lambert could be called up for his major-league debut sometime this week, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Lambert looked good at big-league spring training this year but hasn't carried that success into the minor-league season. The 22-year-old has a 5.07 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 51:16 K:BB through 60.1 innings at Triple-A Albuquerque.
Lambert was sent to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Lambert held his own in big-league camp, compiling a 3.38 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across 13.1 innings, but will return to the minors to open the season. The right-hander owns a career 3.76 ERA across parts of four seasons, though he struggled to a 5.04 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in his first taste of Triple-A last year (11 starts, 55.1 innings).
Lambert received an invitation to major-league spring training Wednesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
The 21-year-old impressed at Double-A Hartford last season with a 2.23 ERA and 1.2 BB/9. He even earned a promotion to Triple-A Albuquerque in the middle of the season, though his stats sunk upon his advancement. He'll get a chance to show his repertoire in front of the big-league brass, but Lambert will likely see a bit more time in the upper levels of the minors before making his major-league debut.
