by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/26/2015) The Reds acquired three left-handed pitchers in return for moving ace Johnny Cueto to the Royals on Sunday, the team announced.

Cincinnati received Brandon Finnegan , John Lamb and Cody Reed as part of the package to move Cueto, who will be a free agent after this season.

Finnegan and Lamb will head to Triple-A Louisville, and Cody Reed will be sent to Double-A Pensacola.

Finnegan was 3-0 with an impressive 2.96 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 24 1/3 innings with the Royals this season. Lamb pitched his way to a 9-1 record for the Royals' Triple-A team this season, while posting a 2.67 ERA with 96 strikeouts in 94 1/3 innings. Reed, a second-round pick back in 2013, sported a 3.45 ERA with 19 strikeouts in 28 2/3 innings for Double-A Northwest Arkansas this season.

Royals recall John Lamb for Friday's doubleheader


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2015) The Royals recalled pitcher John Lamb for Friday's doubleheader at the Chicago White Sox, the team announced.

Lamb will be the 26th man for the two games, so no further move is necessary. Lamb has never pitched in the big leagues. He is 9-1 with a 2.68 ERA at Triple-A this season.


Royals pondering calling up John Lamb for doubleheader


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2015) Royals starting pitcher prospect John Lamb was held out of the Triple-A All-Star game because Kansas City is considering using him as the 26th man during Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox, general manager Dayton Moore said Thursday.

Lamb, the former top-100 prospect, is having a monster year at Triple-A Omaha. He is 9-1 with a 2.68 ERA through 15 starts. He has 86 strikeouts in 84 innings.


John Lamb could be option for Royals rotation in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Royals starting pitcher prospect John Lamb is on the team's radar for a potential promotion to the majors, if the big-league rotation needs an arm this summer, according to The Kansas City Star.

“If we needed somebody to go up, and there was an opportunity, I don’t think any of us would hesitate to make that recommendation,” assistant general manager J.J. Picollo said.

The former top-100 prospect is 6-1 with a 2.74 ERA through eight starts for Triple-A Omaha. After struggling in his return from Tommy John surgery in 2011, the left-hander is beginning to round into form again.

“His changeup is looking more like the changeup he had prior to surgery, with good arm speed and deception,” Picollo said. “And the curveball’s got better shape. So there’s a lot of things pointing in the right direction. And he’s doing a much better job being aware of the running game as well.”

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2013) The Royals plan to promote pitcher John Lamb from Class A Wilmington to Triple-A Omaha, the Kansas City Star reports Monday. The 23-year-old has been pitching well of late and has made 19 starts at Wilmington.

In his first full year back from Tommy John surgery, Lamb has a 5.63 ERA at Wilmington but was coming off seven shutout innings his last time out.  


Can John Lamb regain his pre-surgery form?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

In this week's Down on the Farm column, I highlight Lamb as a player who might be reappearing on long-term keeper radars, if he can regain his pre-surgery form. In 2011, Lamb was ranked by Baseball America as a top 20 prospect (No. 18).


John Lamb getting up to speed


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2013) Receiving additional work in the team's minor-league camp, Royals pitcher John Lamb has regained the velocity on his fastball after some slight concern earlier this spring, the Kansas City Star reports. Lamb has touched 87-91 mph in his past two starts, deemed an improvement after he allowed five hits in two innings during Cactus League play. The left-hander was optioned to Double-A Northwest Arkansas earlier this month.

Lamb eager to get to majors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2013) MLB.com reports Royals pitching prospect John Lamb is ready to resume his career after missing most of the 2012 season recovering from Tommy John surgery and a foot injury. "From what I've heard, [there are] no restrictions on me," Lamb said. "I don't know how much they're trying to throw me out here in the spring, but I'm just going out to compete and stay healthy. Obviously, my goal is Kansas City, sooner than later, but I can't rush the process. It's all on them, so I'm just trusting it and whenever I'm there, I'm there."
