Jake Lamb has pretty good numbers this season, but maybe the farm animal will get him in the All-Star Game.
Jake Lamb has pretty good numbers this season—a .292 batting average, 19 home runs and an NL-best .617 slugging percentage—but if that doesn’t convince you to vote him into the All-Star Game, the D-Backs are hoping this will.
Lamb has some stiff competition for the NL’s final spot. Established stars Ryan Braun, Brandon Belt and Starling Marte are also up for the honor, as well as breakout rookie Trevor Story.
I’ll have to admit, I just confused him with former Astros infielder Mike Lamb, who retired in 2010. After this stunt, I won’t make that mistake again.
