Diamondbacks’ Lamb to have season-ending shoulder surgery
Lamb said on Thursday the damage to his rotator cuff did not cause pain, but limited his ability to swing a bat. He is hoping to be back by spring training in 2019.
The 27-year-old injured his shoulder diving for a groundball against the Chicago Cubs and was placed on the 10-day disabled list.
Lamb was an All-Star in 2017 and finished the season with 30 home runs and 105 RBIs. He had six homers and 31 RBIs with a .222 average through 56 games during an injury-plagued 2018 season.
The Diamondbacks acquired third baseman Eduardo Escobar from Minnesota before the trade deadline.
