Jacob Ryan Lamb (born October 9, 1990) is an American professional baseball infielder who is a free agent. He made his Major League Baseball (MLB) debut with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2014, and was an All-Star in 2017. He has also played in MLB for the Oakland Athletics.

Amateur career

Lamb grew up in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. He attended Bishop Blanchet High School in Seattle and starred for their baseball team.[1]

After graduating high school, the Pittsburgh Pirates selected Lamb in the 38th round of the 2009 MLB Draft, but he followed through with his commitment to attend the University of Washington.[2] He played college baseball for the Washington Huskies baseball team. With the Huskies, Lamb was named an All-Pac-12 Conference player.[3] After his sophomore season in 2011, he played collegiate summer baseball for the Yarmouth–Dennis Red Sox of the Cape Cod Baseball League.[4]

The Arizona Diamondbacks selected Lamb in the sixth round of the 2012 MLB Draft. He made his professional debut in 2012 for the Missoula Osprey of the Rookie-level Pioneer League.[5] Lamb played for the Visalia Rawhide of the Class A-Advanced California League in 2013, but appeared in only 64 games due to a hamstring injury.[6] The Diamondbacks assigned Lamb to the Arizona Fall League after the 2013 season.[7] They invited him to spring training in 2014.[8] He began the 2014 season with the Mobile Bay Bears of the Class AA Southern League, and was promoted to the Reno Aces of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League.[9]

After the Diamondbacks traded Martín Prado on July 31, they promoted Lamb to the major leagues on August 7.[6] In 37 games that season, Lamb had a .230 batting average with four home runs.[10] Lamb began the 2015 season on the disabled list but was later taken out and played in 107 games, hitting .263 with six home runs and 34 runs batted in (RBIs). During the 2016 season, Lamb hit .291 with 20 home runs and 61 RBIs in the first half,[citation needed] and was a finalist for the last All Star spot in the All-Star Final Vote.[11] After struggling in the second half, in which he hit .197 (46-for-234), Lamb finished the season with a .249 average, 29 home runs, 91 RBIs, and nine triples.[citation needed]

Lamb was selected to play in the 2017 MLB All-Star Game.[12] He finished the season hitting .248 with 30 home runs, 105 RBIs and 87 walks, although he managed more consistent splits (.246 in the first half and .250 in the second half). On August 2, 2018, he was ruled out for the season as he underwent season-ending shoulder surgery.[13] In 56 games, he hit .222 with six home runs and 31 RBIs.

On April 5, 2019, Lamb went on the injured list with a Grade 2 strain to his left quadriceps muscle.[14] He returned to the Diamondbacks in late June.[15] He batted .193 on the 2019 season.[16]

Lamb and the Diamondbacks agreed to a $5.5 million salary for the 2020 season.[16] On September 10, 2020, the Diamondbacks designated Lamb for assignment.[17] At the time of his designation, Lamb had hit .116/.240/.210 with no home runs over 50 plate appearances in 2020. Lamb was released on September 12.

Oakland Athletics

On September 14, 2020, Lamb signed a major league contract with the Oakland Athletics and was added to their active roster.[18]

Lamb's father, John, played college football for Whitworth University, and his mother, Deonne, was a tennis player in high school and college. Lamb's older brother, Dan, played two sports in high school. His younger brother, Dylan, plays college baseball for the Washington Huskies.[19] His sister, Megan, played softball after surviving leukemia.[20]
