Lamb struggled with his numbers on the field, finishing the season with just a .222 average, along with six home runs and 31 RBIs in 238 plate appearances. The average has never been too high, but he did use his power numbers to become a legit threat in the D-backs lineup. He does have a .248 average over the past two seasons, but ranks only behind Paul Goldschmidt on the team with 59 long balls.
He spent a majority of April and May on the disabled list, before being placed back on the sidelines last Friday. All of the injuries have been related to the same shoulder, and you can now expect to see Daniel Descalso and Chris Owings at third base for the rest of the season.
Meanwhile, another third baseman in the division is done for the season, as Pablo Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants will undergo surgery on his injured hamstring. The 31-year-old suffered a tear in his hamstring while sliding, and ends the season with an average of .248, nine home runs, and 40 RBIs. He has played between first and third base in his second stint with the team, this after leaving for a tumultuous stint with the Boston Red Sox, where he signed a big five-year, $95 million deal before the 2014 season.
He returned to the Giants after getting released by the Red Sox in 2017, and signed with his old team just three days later. Sandoval is getting paid just $545,000 from the Giants, but is still owed $18 million from the best team in baseball, the Red Sox. Evan Longoria, who also just returned from an injury, will be playing full-time third base with "The Panda" done for the year.
