David Peralta, Jake Lamb return to Diamondbacks lineup


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) The Diamondbacks have decided to go with outfielder David Peralta and Jake Lamb in their lineup for Friday night's game against the Giants. 

Peralta is manning left field and batting cleanup and Lamb is playing third base and hitting fifth. Before jumping back in the starting lineup, Peralta hadn't started in the past two games but came off the bench. 

Lamb didn't start Thursday but came off the bench as well. 


D-Backs' Jake Lamb reaches club-record seven RBI in two games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb homered and drove in four more runs on Tuesday against the Giants. He is up to seven RBI through his first two games, a club record.

"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 3B Jake Lamb gets first start Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb drew his first start of the season Tuesday against the Giants after being left out of the Opening Day starting lineup in favor or Aaron Hill, who started at second base Tuesday.

While Lamb didn't start Monday, he did come off the bench to contribute a pinch-hit, bases-clearing double in the bottom of the eighth inning, which cut the deficit to 5-4.


Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb drives in three in loss


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb went 1 for 1 from the plate with a double and three RBI in Arizona's 5-4 loss to the Giants Monday. 

Lamb came on in the eighth inning as a pinch hitter for Chris Owings with the bases loaded and ripped the second pitch he saw to deep center field, bringing them all home. 


D-Backs go with Aaron Hill over Jake Lamb at 3B in opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Diamondbacks veteran infielder Aaron Hill drew the start at third base over Jake Lamb in Monday's season opener against the Giants.

Hill has OK numbers against Giants ace Madison Bumgarner, who is on the hill Monday. Hill is batting .240 (6 for 25) with a .600 slugging percentage, two home runs, three doubles and six RBI in his career against the left-hander hurler.

Hill is also a right-handed hitter, as opposed to Lamb, who bats left-handed. The matchup is more favorable for Hill against a top left-handed pitcher.


Diamondbacks considering Aaron Hill at third base Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale is considering his options for the Opening Day lineup Monday, reports AZCentral.com. Hale is looking at moving regular second baseman Aaron Hill at third base.

The team decided to option Cuban prospect Yasmany Tomas to Triple-A Saturday, leaving a hole at third with either Hill or prospect Jake Lamb to fill. Hill has played 42 of his 1,284 games at third base, hitting .327 with 19 doubles and 23 RBI in 167 plate appearances.


Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb expected to make roster


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb is likely to make the Opening Day roster and be named the starter as the team has optioned Cuban prospect Yasmany Tomas to Triple-A.

Lamb and Tomas were competing for the role, but the club decided to send the rookie to the minors for additional work. Lamb hit .230 with four home runs and 11 RBI in 126 at-bats in 2014. He hit .364 with two home runs and six RBI in 66 plate appearances this spring.


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."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Lamb has had just one at-bat since Friday after an encouraging 7-for-19 stretch. Peralta has been sidelined since Sept. 5.


Jake Lamb still out Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Diamondbacks infielder Jake Lamb is out of the starting lineup yet again Tuesday against the Giants, as he deals with a quad injury. He has not played since Friday, and is day to day at this point. 

Jake Lamb dealing with a quad injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Diamondbacks infielder Jake Lamb was held out of the starting lineup Monday night against San Francisco, due to a quad injury, the Arizona Republic reports. He has now missed three consecutive games with the ailment. Lamb is hitting .227 with three homers and 10 RBI over 88 at-bats.

Jake Lamb's grand slam wins it


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2014) The Diamondbacks received a rare boost from infielder Jake Lamb Friday, in a 5-2 win over the Rockies.

Lamb put the Diamondbacks up for good in the eighth inning with a grand slam, his second home run of the season. It was his lone hit in the game, as he went 1 for 4 with two strikeouts and four RBI.

Lamb has appeared in 16 games for the Diamondbacks, hitting .218/.279/.345 in 55 at-bats.  


Jake Lamb adds some depth to a thin position


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/7/2014) With the expected promotion of Jake Lamb Thursday, Fantasy owners hurting for a third baseman now have another option to consider. 

Just how good is he? Well, his minor-leagues numbers were probably warped by his surroundings -- any hitter who passes through both the California League and Pacific Coast League has the potential to fake out Fantasy owners -- but he hit .321 with a .959 OPS over parts of three seasons and was batting .500 (9 for 18) in a brief stint at Triple-A. He was also basically the same player at every step up the ladder, which adds legitimacy to those numbers.

Of course, he also struck out every third at-bat, and we know how that goes from George Springer and Jon Singleton. He also bats left-handed, which old-school manager Kirk Gibson might use as an excuse to sit him a couple times a week.

Lamb is far from must-add, but he has enough of a pedigree at a weak position to enter the mixed-league discussion. Right now, I'd rate him somewhere between Lonnie Chisenhall and Mike Moustakas among third basemen.


Report: Diamondbacks bring up prospect Jake Lamb


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) The Diamondbacks will promote third baseman Jake Lamb from Triple-A Reno on Thursday, sources have told azcentral.com.

The 23-year-old Lamb has been tearing it up with a stat line of .318/.399/.551 and 79 RBI at Double-A before his promotion to Reno for the last five games. But he fanned 99 times in 374 at-bats.
