Yanks add Lamb to mix at third base

Postby WebHamster » Sat Feb 07, 2004 3:00 am

Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - The deal that sent third baseman Mike Lamb from Texas to the New York Yankees was finalized Friday. In exchange, the Rangers acquired minor league pitcher Jose Garcia.

The deal, announced Wednesday, was pending a roster move by the Yankees to open up a spot on the 40-man roster.

With the possibility of third baseman Aaron Boone missing the entire season due to a knee injury, Lamb will be given a shot to compete for the starting job with Miguel Cairo, Enrique Wilson, Tyler Houston and Erick Almonte.

The 28-year-old Lamb hit .132 in only 38 at-bats last season for the Rangers while playing the infield and the outfield.

However, in the 2002 campaign, Lamb hit .283 with nine homers and 33 RBI in 115 games for the Rangers.

Garcia was 10-8 with a 2.52 ERA in 25 Single-A starts in 2003.

I've never heard of this pitcher Garcia. Does anyone have a scouting report?

No, I think that he's a middling prospect at best. But what can you expect from trading Lamb?
