How this works
Jake Lamb - 3B
Lamb made his debut on August 7th, taking over as the team's everyday starting third baseman. Lamb is one of two hot third base prospects the Diamondbacks have been cultivating. He did nothing but rake at obscene levels at both AA-Mobile and AAA-Reno. Despite being with the team for two full months, Lamb did not manage to accrue any WAR under either system, but managed to do just enough to avoid slipping into the negative category. Considered a possible power bat to place in the heart of the order in the future, Lamb's bat did not translate very well in the bigs during his first short stint. His biggest moment of the season came on August 29th against the Rockies. Down by one against Colorado, the Diamondbacks loaded the bases with no one out in the eighth inning. After Trumbo and Montero both failed to push anyone across, Jake Lamb launched a grand slam to straight away center field. While Lamb's bat has yet to fully materialize at the big league level, his defense remains solid over at the hot corner. Though Brandon Drury could soon be breathing down Lamb's neck from Reno, the team currently has no other true third basemen, meaning it is likely that Lamb will continue to get an opportunity to prove he belongs.
