The Royals now have one of their better hitters (Eric Hosmer) and pitchers in AA NW Arkansas after John Lamb was promoted this week.â†µ
It’s the second time this season Lamb has received a promotion. After going 2-3 with a 1.58 ERA in eight starts for low Class A Burlington, Lamb was called up to Class A Wilmington, where he went 6-3 with a 1.45 ERA in 13 starts.â†µ
The 20-year old Lamb is rated by Baseball America as the Royals seventh-best prospect.â†µ
The Royals are quickly getting stacked at AA and AAA. This should be fun to watch these guys develop over the next year.
