Top Jake Lamb News

  • Pirates' Jake Lamb: Signs as NRI with Pirates

    The Pirates signed Lamb to a minor-league contract Thursday with an invitation to major-league spring training, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Lamb appeared in only 18 major-league games in 2023 but put up an .874 OPS in 85 games (357 plate appearances) between the Triple-A affiliates of the Yankees and Angels. The 33-year-old corner infielder owns a career .235/.326/.427 big-league batting line spread over parts of 10 seasons.

  • Yankees' Jake Lamb: Gets MiLB deal from Pinstripes

    Lamb signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Friday.

    Lamb will report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after slashing .317/.453/.492 across 150 plate appearances for Triple-A Salt Lake, but only .216/.259/.353 over 54 PAs with the Angels this season. The veteran utility player doesn't have a spot on the 40-man roster, and is likely only an option for a promotion in an emergency.

  • Jake Lamb: Cut loose

    The Angels released Lamb on Sunday.

    Lamb cleared waivers after the Angels designated him for assignment Friday, but rather than keeping the veteran corner infielder in the minor-league system, he'll be given the chance to pursue opportunities elsewhere. The 32-year-old posted a .945 OPS in 34 games at Triple-A Salt Lake this season but struggled in his more limited opportunity at the big-league level (.216/.259/.353 slash line over 54 plate appearances).

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Designated for assignment

    Lamb was designated for assignment by the Angels on Friday.

    The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Victor Mederos, who joins the Angels' bullpen in a corresponding transaction. Lamb was optioned to Triple-A in the middle of May, and the veteran utility player will now hit the waiver wire.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Optioned to Triple-A

    Lamb was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Lamb was playing only sporadically for the team and hadn't started in the last four games. He had a clause in his contract that allowed him to be optioned within 45 days of the start of the regular season, so the team was facing a decision on Lamb's status in the coming days.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Goes deep again

    Lamb hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in Wednesday's win over St. Louis.

    Lamb was summoned off the bench with the Angels down a run in the top of the ninth inning, and he came through with a 434-foot solo blast that tied the score. It was the second homer in as many games for the journeyman, who didn't go deep in any of his first 14 contests this season. Lamb is playing first base and batting fifth against the Cardinals on Thursday, and he could start to see more opportunities if he can keep the power surge going.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Clubs first homer

    Lamb went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Sunday's 3-0 victory versus the Brewers.

    Lamb got the start at first base and hit out of the No. 8 hole. He produced the first run of the contest with a solo shot to right field in the second inning. It was the first long ball of the season for Lamb, who came to the Angels on a minor-league contract last December before making the Opening Day roster. He's logged 45 plate appearances on the campaign and is slashing .214/.267/.310.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Rejoins lineup, but losing work

    Lamb will start at first base and bat sixth in Monday's game against the Red Sox, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    The lefty-hitting Lamb is back in the lineup for the series finale with right-hander Brayan Bello on the hill for Boston, but the former may have lost his grip on a strong-side platoon role at first base. Lamb, who has slashed .172/.250/.207 through 32 plate appearances, was on the bench Saturday and Sunday, when the Red Sox also brought right-handers to the hill. Gio Urshela was recently moved off shortstop following the call-up of top prospect Zach Neto and looks as though he may have displaced Lamb as the Halos' preferred option at first base versus right-handed pitching. Urshela will shift over to the hot corner Monday, however, while Anthony Rendon gets a maintenance day.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Resting again versus lefty

    Lamb is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    He'll take a seat for the third time in four games while Brandon Drury gets the nod at first base. Despite his recent lack of usage, the lefty-hitting Lamb still appears to be holding down the larger side of the platoon at first base, as all three of his absences have come when the Angels have opposed southpaws.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Sitting out series finale

    Lamb is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    With a southpaw (Yusei Kikuchi) taking the hill for Toronto, the lefty-hitting Lamb will hit the bench after a string of five consecutive starts, during which he went 2-for-18 with a double, a walk and two runs. Brandon Drury will check in for Lamb at first base.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Draws third straight start

    Lamb will start at first base and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports.

    Anthony Rendon remains out Wednesday for a fourth game in a row while he continues to serve a suspension, and his ongoing absence has cleared the way for both Lamb and Brandon Drury to pick up regular starts. Lamb is included in the starting nine for the third straight game, after going 3-for-11 with a double, two walks, three runs and two RBI in his first three appearances of the season. Once Rendon is back in action, Lamb could end up filling the strong side of a platoon at first base with Drury while Jared Walsh (head) remains on the injured list, but the Angels haven't formally clarified their plans.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Added to roster

    The Angels selected Lamb's contract Wednesday.

    Lamb was sidelined at the end of camp because of tightness in his glute, but he's in good enough shape now to be included on the Opening Day roster. The 32-year-old will be an option at either of the corner-infield positions, with first base likely representing the easier of the two paths to playing time in the short term while Jared Walsh (headaches and insomnia) opens the season on the 10-day injured list.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Late scratch from spring game

    Lamb was scratched from Monday's exhibition against the Dodgers, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Lamb just received news earlier in the day that he made the Opening Day roster, but he won't be able to go in this one. He'll be considered day-to-day with the start of the regular season on the horizon.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Scratched with glute tightness

    Lamb has been scratched from Monday's spring game against the Dodgers with tightness in his glute, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Lamb was informed that he'll be a part of the Opening Day roster, but he won't be able to play Monday because of the injury. Preston Palmeiro will play first base in his place. Lamb should be considered day-to-day until there's more information.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Makes Opening Day roster

    Lamb had his contract selected by the Angels on Monday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Lamb had seemed pegged for the Triple-A Salt Lake roster, but Jared Walsh going to the injured list has pushed him onto the major-league club. The 32-year-old might wind up with a decent amount of playing time at first base while Walsh is out, although shifting Brandon Drury over to first most days could be the likelier scenario.

  • Angels' Jake Lamb: Inks minor-league deal

    Lamb signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Lamb spent time with the Mariners and Dodgers last year and slashed .216/.315/.392 with three homers, 13 runs and six RBI over 41 games. He'll have a chance to compete for a major-league roster spot as a non-roster invitee this spring.

  • Jake Lamb: Elects free agency

    Lamb cleared waivers and elected free agency Saturday.

    Lamb was designated for assignment by Seattle on Wednesday, and he'll choose to test free agency rather than accept an outright assignment to Triple-A Tacoma. Over 41 major-league games between the Dodgers and Mariners this year, he's hit .216 with three homers, 13 runs and six RBI.

  • Mariners' Jake Lamb: DFA'd by Seattle

    Lamb was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Lamb has appeared in only five games in September and has now lost his spot on Seattle's big-league roster. The 31-year-old has played in 41 games between the Mariners and Dodgers this season and has a .216/.315/.392 slash line with three home runs, six RBI and 13 runs.

  • Mariners' Jake Lamb: Pops pinch-hit homer Saturday

    Lamb entered Saturday's loss to the Guardians as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning and hit a solo home run in his one plate appearance.

    The veteran's blast extended the Mariners' lead to 3-1 at the time, an advantage that seemed fairly secure until the Guardians rallied for three unanswered runs in the eighth inning. Lamb's homer was not only his first since arriving in Seattle, but also since all the way back on July 9 as well. The 31-year-old has seen only sporadic playing time thus far on his new squad, and that figures to continue being the case down the stretch unless injuries dictate otherwise.
