Jake Lamb is the guy that a casual Rockies fan knows the most after he spent part of the last seven seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
He was released by the Braves after a poor spring showing, hitting .194/.293/.333 in 36 at-bats.
When he is healthy, he is an All-Star player … but he’s rarely been healthy lately. He has combined to play in 165 games in the last three seasons and he has been a shell of his former self. In the last three years, he has combined to hit .205/.309/.351 with an OPS+ of 74.
In 2016 and 2017, he averaged 150 games a season with 30 home runs, 98 RBI, 30 doubles, a slash line of .248/.345/.498 with an OPS+ of 113.
However, in a handful of games with the Oakland A’s last year after being released by Arizona, Lamb showed a glimmer of hope as he hit .267/.327/.556 with an OPS+ of 144 in 13 games with them.
If the Rockies signed him, he would be able to contribute at third and first base.
