Tomas has been the team's primary third baseman since Lamb went on the disabled list in mid-April. After a slow start offensively, Tomas has been on a nice run as of late. He has multiple hits in six straight games through Thursday. He is batting .500 (13 for 26) with one home run, three doubles and four RBI in that span.

Diamondbacks struggling to fill in void at third base


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Tomas is hitting .286 in 14 at-bats this season while Hill is scuffling along at .156 in 45 at-bats.

"It's fun to watch," Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said, per MLB.com. "He just played. He played well. He's a very quiet, confident kid and he sort of goes under the radar sometimes, but he's played a really good third base and he's a good hitter. He's not only a power hitter, but he's a good hitter with two strikes, and we're excited about his future."

Lamb, who hit bases-clearing, pinch-hit double in Monday's season opener, launched a three-run home run off Ryan Vogelsong in the fifth inning. He also grounded out in the second, which scored a run. He finished 1 for 3 with a walk, a run scored and four RBI in a 7-6 victory. He is hitting .500 (2 for 4) to start the year.

"He's always wanting to get better," first baseman Paul Goldschmidt said of Lamb. "All throughout spring, from the first day he's got here, he's definitely been impressive. He was one of the first guys there. He works really hard, whether it's in the weight room or early defensive drills, hitting in the cage, but also he's a really smart player, too."

Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb expanding role to first


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb is beginning to learn the ropes at first base. Lamb, who may still be the Opening Day starter at third, could be used at first when Paul Goldschmidt gets a day off, reports MLB.com.

"The weirdest part is when a ball is not hit to me -- I know it sounds obvious -- you've got to cover the base," Lamb said. "I'm so used to when the ball is not hit to me I just watch the play develop."

Lamb is still trying to get more comfortable with his role at first.

"My biggest problem right now is I don't have a glove that I'm comfortable with," Lamb said. "So if they're going to put me over there, at some time we've got to get a glove. I'm so used to having a smaller glove. Hopefully I can stick over at third, but like I've said over and over, I'll play wherever they want me to."


D-Backs might find a way to keep Jake Lamb on roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) While the Diamondbacks are trying to see if Yasmany Tomas can develop into a starting third baseman at the major-league level, Jake Lamb is doing his best this spring to make sure the Diamondbacks don't forget about him, per MLB.com.

"He just looks great," Diamondbacks chief baseball officer Tony La Russa said. "I didn't see him last spring so I don't have anything to compare it to. I saw him at the end of the season, he could have been worn down. His talent is oozing. Believe me, at the point we're a contending club there is room for both of those guys [Tomas and Lamb] on the team. It's not that tough to figure out. They can't both play third base, but you could be creative. Get the best players on the field."
