According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, the Cubs “may look at signing veteran infielder Mike Lamb to a minor league deal.” The Cubs have looked all spring for a proven backup for Aramis Ramirez. The report indicated Lamb would be used as security in case of an Aramis Ramirez injury.
The Brewers just released Lamb in favor of former Cub, Casey McGehee. Mike Lamb hit .289 with a .366 OBP in 124 games for Houston in 124 games with 14 doubles and 11 home runs. Lamb struggled in Minnesota last year (.233/.276/.322 with 12 doubles and 1 home run in 81 games) before finishing the year with the Brewers.
