TD's Top 50 Prospects- #25 Pitcher

Posted by Lionel on February 27, 2009.

Casey Lambert

Rank: #25 Pitcher (TD), Unranked Prospect (BA)

Age: 23

Position(s): RP

Team(s): Daytona, Tennessee

'08 Key Composite Stats: 2.81 ERA, 12 Saves, 1.34 WHIP

Acquired: 6th Round, 2007

Breakdown: The lefthander appeared in 55 games in '08, finishing 40 of them. He was a relative workhorse for a minor league reliever, pitching over 67 innings. He had racked up 11 saves with Daytona until a mid-June promotion to Tennessee. He would only have 1 at Tennessee, but still finished in a second place tie in the organization with 12 saves. The only concerning aspect of Lambert's season was a 1.34 WHIP. But that number is high in large part to the just over 1 hit per inning he allowed. The good news is that he seems to challenge hitters, walking only 22 last year.
A quick note on Lambert's unranked prospect status according to BA. BA ranks each organization's top 30 prospects and then places another 25 or so pitchers and 15 or so batters in the organization's depth chart. As we proceed through TD's prospect list, you will see a number of these unranked prospects.
