RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for John Lamb.

2012

Lamb pitched only 35 innings in 2011 before suffering an elbow injury in June that required Tommy John surgery to correct. Before the setback, he had 22 strikeouts and 13 walks with a 3.09 ERA at Double-A Northwest Arkansas. His rehab should eat up a good chunk of the 2012 season and it's likely that we won't see the real John Lamb back on the mound until 2013. Prior to the surgery, Lamb was arguably the top pitching prospect in the Royals system and would have likely made his MLB debut this season.

2011

Lamb is moving quickly through the Royals' system, earning two promotions to Double-A last season, but still figures to be a year off from helping KC. He's a strikeout pitcher who has shown decent control and sports a 3.54 K:BB ratio.
