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.

The 20-year old Lamb is rated by Baseball America as the Royals seventh-best prospect.

The Royals are quickly getting stacked at AA and AAA. This should be fun to watch these guys develop over the next year.
