John Lamb – career MLB stats – 2-12 ERA 6.17, 1.60 WHIP, 116 K’s in 119 IP

John Lamb has pitched in the majors before logging two years for the Cincinnati Reds in 2015 and 2016 with not much success. In Spring Training for the Angels Lamb showed some promise early although he ended up with a 1-3 record and a 5.28 ERA this Spring. The one good thing is Lamb has shown decent control even in his two major league seasons with 50 walks in 119 innings.

Lamb’s biggest issue is a high WHIP of 1.60 and his opposing players batting average of .300 is scary. He also is prone to giving up the long ball with 22 homers in those same 119 innings. So far in Triple-A this season Lamb is 1-0 in 13 starts with a 3.44 ERA with 54 strikeouts in 49 innings and a 1.29 WHIP. We will see how he does today against the A’s.
