RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
2012
2011
  1. John Lamb 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Not much went right for Lamb in 2016, as he took a step back in most meaningful areas in his sophomore season. Known as a high-strikeout and good-control pitcher in the minors, the lefty's K/9 rate fell by three full strikeouts from his 2015 mark, and he posted a 4.0 BB/9 in 2016. He also had trouble keeping the ball in the yard, yielding 14 home runs in just 70 innings before being sent back to the minors. While the 25-year-old was able to regain his control at the Triple-A level, the overall results weren't much better as he still posted a 5.22 ERA and ultimately underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc. After spending two weeks of the offseason on the Rays' roster, Lamb was released and signed on with the Angels in December. He'll likely miss the beginning of the season and may end up spending most of the year in the minors.
  2. John Lamb 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Lamb was part of the haul the Reds received in the Johnny Cueto deal. He's a risky prospect given his injury history, but he also has considerable upside. He demonstrated that upside in his big league callup with the Reds, striking out 58 batters in 49.2 innings. The Reds have the luxury of giving him innings to work on his craft, and his ultimate upside is as a 200-strikeout pitcher. Before he gets there the Reds will have to endure significant growing pains in 2016, but he has a good chance to spend most of the season in the starting rotation, assuming he progresses on schedule in his recovery from December back surgery. A rehab stint at Triple-A may be necessary to start the year.
  3. John Lamb 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Lamb has been trying to work his fastball velocity back up to the lower-90s range since his 2011 Tommy John surgery, but simply hasn't been quite the same since the procedure. The left-hander did show a few encouraging signs in his 2014 performance, however, as he posted his highest innings total (138.1) and lowest ERA (3.97) since his pre-surgery days. He did have a tough time keeping the ball in the park, giving up 19 homers, and that's likely what kept him from seeing his first career taste of MLB action. If Lamb can continue to improve in his age-24 season, there's a chance he could represent a wild card candidate for an occasional spot start in 2015.
  4. John Lamb 2012 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  5. John Lamb 2011 Preseason Outlook
    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.
