RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Last season was Lamb's coming out party, though it wasn't a consistent one. He came into the year with 10 career home runs in his first 476 MLB at-bats, then proceeded to slug 29 home runs. It could have been an even bigger season, but he cooled after a great start. In his first 76 games, Lamb had 16 home runs, 52 RBI and a .286/.366/.584 line. In his next 75 games, those numbers dropped to 13 home runs, 39 RBI and a .213/.299/.437 line. If he plays near the level of his 2016 first half, he's an elite fantasy contributor. He hasn't shown the ability to hit lefties at all (63 wRC+ against LHP in 2016, 50 wRC+ against LHP for his career), but the new regime has said they plan on treating him as an everyday player, so southpaws may continue to drain his batting average. His second half slump will lower the price considerably, and he still has room for growth entering his age-26 season.

2016

Lamb won the starting third base job out of spring training in 2015 and started the season on fire, collecting 12 hits in his first 29 at-bats. However, he suffered a foot injury on April 18, which put him on the shelf for about two months. It was poor timing for the 24-year-old, who seemed to be finding his groove at the MLB level. Lamb would finish the season hitting .263 across 390 plate appearances, while belting six home runs and driving in 34 runs. He will need to improve against left-handed pitchers to take the next step as a player. Last season, he hit .200 against lefties and for his career heís hitting just .179, which may put him in danger of falling into a platoon in the long run. Lamb figures to get regular playing time in 2016 nonetheless, and if he continues to make strides at the plate, he could be a sneaky option at third base.

2015

After slashing .318/.399/.551 in 103 games at Double-A Mobile, Lamb earned a promotion to Triple-A, and a week later received another promotion to join the big league club. As a 23-year-old, he was given the opportunity to act as Arizonaís primary third baseman over the final two months of the season. His approach at the plate fell off completely after the promotion, walking at just a 4.5% clip over 133 plate appearances -- a far cry from the 13.6% rate he posted in 743 plate appearances in the minors over the past two seasons. The biggest thing working in Lambís favor is the dearth of quality third-base options in Arizona. Yasmani Tomas will get the first crack at the starting job but Lamb will be next in line.
