John Lamb, Wilmington Blue Rocks
Tribute to 1992 Upper Deck
by Goose Joak
John Lamb is one of the Royals top pitching prospects. At the opening day age of 19, he has exploded onto the scene, advancing from A, to A+, to AA in a matter of months. He's striking out over 10 batters per nine innings, walking just two per nine. It's clear that John has wasted no time making his case for future Royals ace. And did I mention he's just 19 years old?
The picture was taken by Lamb's father, who writes a blog about his son's baseball career. Pretty cool if you ask me. I'll be pulling for Lamb to take his place alongside Greinke and the other Royals top prospects in 2011 or 2012!
The Royals really do have some outstanding prospects now, and Lamb is certainly among the very brightest.
