When Lamb was a senior in high school, he formed the middle of a lineup that also included Rays outfielder Josh Sale, a junior at the time. A tough sign out of high school, Lamb fell to the 38th round in 2009, when the Pirates finally took a chance on him. Lamb stands out on the field with his athletic 6-foot-3, 210-pound frame. A shortstop in high school, he's a good defender at third base with above-average arm strength. Lamb shows well in batting practice, flashing above-average raw power, but has struggled in games this year, hitting just .313/.422/.436 over 179 at-bats. His swing will need some work in pro ball and he doesn't look comfortable in the box against lefties. The lefthanded hitter shows some feel for hitting, but uses a slashy, inside-out swing in games instead of trying to tap into his power.
