In a season that has already seen Eric Hosmer, Danny Duffy, Aaron Crow and Tim Collins jump to the big leagues, the Royals farm system got some potentially bad news on Thursday night.
Lefthander John Lamb, considered one of the best pitching prospects in the system and one of the most promising lefthanders in the minors, left his start for Northwest Arkansas after only two-thirds of an inning because of elbow discomfort, according to the Naturals' radio broadcaster. The news was Tweeted by Lamb's father, James Lamb as well as the Northwest Arkansas Naturals' official Twitter feed.
Lamb had battled a sore lat muscle earlier this spring, and has been pitching largely at 89-91 mph, well below the 90-95 mph he pitched at last year.
