Lamb to debut on Friday
The Reds announced that LHP John Lamb will be called up Friday from Triple-A Louisville to make his Major League debut vs. the Dodgers.
Michael Lorenzen will be coming out of the rotation, but no roster move has been made as of yet.
The rotation order is this:
Mon: OFF DAY
Tues: Raisel Iglesias (vs. KC)
The Reds acquired Lamb and fellow lefty prospects Brandon Finnegan, and Cody Reed from the Royals for Johnny Cueto on July 26.
Lamb is 10-2 with a 2.67 ERA in 20 Triple-A starts this season for Omaha and Louisville. In 111 1/3 innings, he has 94 hits, 36 walks and 117 strikeouts.
When he pitches, Lamb will be the seventh different Reds player to make his Major League debut — and the sixth starting pitcher.
The Reds have assigned Lamb No. 47, Cueto’s old number.
