Tall; slender frame with long limbs; good extension; plane is average and does not hide pitches extremely well; arm speed is a tick above average; mild crossfire; compacts body too much on delivery at times; alters SL release point.
Myrtle Beach Pelicans (High A, Cubs)
40; Middle Relief
More control than command; command loose; mild arm-side run in 91-93 range; some deception at this speed; straightens out at 93+ and becomes very hittable; shows some inefficiency pounding left-handed hitters inside; fastball movement tailed over outside edge of plate against left-handed hitters
Only threw two; average fade with some arm-side drop and tail; looked a little firm; two swing-and-misses on the pitch.
More of a slurve; 11-to-5 break with mild depth; hangs a little too much for my liking; better in 79-80 range as it has more bite; command is loose; compaction in delivery causes release points to vary.
Lamb has a three pitch arsenal, but the ceiling is likely a middle reliever due to no pitch projecting solid-average or higher. His fastball can top mid 90's, but lacks the necessary movement to fool hitters at the major league level. Lamb has some mechanical issues to fix, such as repeating his delivery and arm slots. These issues could make or break his chance at hitting his ceiling of a solid middle inning arm.
