Lambert, like several other top Southern California preps, pitched for USA Baseball's 18U national team, including a relief outing against Cuba. At a listed 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, Lambert has an athletic frame and good track record that he has embellished by leading San Dimas High to an undefeated regular season; the team was 28-0, the longest win streak in the area in 22 years. Lambert struck out 15 in the latest victory and has had a stellar spring, using a high arm slot to produce two pitches that are above-average if not quite plus. His fastball generally sits 89-92 mph but consistently reaches 93-94, and he's able to pitch to both sides of the plate with it. He has a quick arm and hand speed that allows him to spin a true 12-to-6 curveball, which is above-average at its best. He has a solid changeup as well and some feel for how to use his three-pitch mix. Lambert's stuff could get more consistently firm as he adds strength down the line. He's part of a potentially stellar UCLA recruiting class that also could get hit hard by the draft.
