2020 Fantasy Outlook
Lambert made the first 19 starts of his big-league career in 2019 as the Rockies cycled through rotation options, but he failed to find much success, finishing with a 7.25 ERA. Coors Field and a juiced ball may have inflated that number somewhat, but it's still not good enough in any environment, as evidenced by his park-adjusted ERA- of 144. Lambert had never been a particularly high strikeout guy in the minors, but his 13.6% strikeout rate as a rookie was quite poor. The righty has a long way to go to be an effective weapon in the majors, though at age 22 and with a decent amount of prospect pedigree, he could still get there. The Rockies' rotation looks likely to remain weak in 2020, so Lambert could be in line for more opportunities to prove his worth. Given the extent of his struggles as a rookie, though, there's not much reason for fantasy owners to invest until he starts turning the corner. Read Past Outlooks

Undergoes Tommy John surgery
PColorado Rockies
Elbow
July 23, 2020
The Rockies announced Thursday that Lambert (elbow) recently underwent Tommy John surgery and was placed on the 45-day injured list.
ANALYSIS
Lambert had previously developed a forearm strain late in spring training and apparently didn't fully move past the issue four months later at summer camp, prompting him to undergo the corrective procedure. Given the timing of his surgery, Lambert appears set to miss the entire 2021 campaign while rehabbing the elbow injury, though he should back to full strength for spring training in 2022.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
The Rockies selected Lambert with the 44th overall pick in June, and persuaded him to rescind his commitment to UCLA with a $1.495 million signing bonus, almost $100,000 more than his projected slot value. Standing 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, Lambert has the measurables you typically look for in a starter, and features three pitches that project as average-or-better offerings in time. He made eight starts for rookie-level Grand Junction after being drafted, going 0-4 despite allowing only 12 earned runs in 31.1 innings with a respectable 26:11 K:BB. Turning just 19 in April, Lambert may need to prove more in rookie ball before the Rockies think about a full-season assignment. Considering the team context and lack of proximity to the majors, Lambert can probably be left alone in dynasty and keeper leagues for now.
