Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Curveball: 60 | Slider: 50 | Changeup: 60 | Control: 60 | Overall: 50

One of the keys to Rockies player development in recent years has been to develop pitching from within, starters who know how to handle hitting-friendly environments. Lambert, the organization's second-round pick in 2015 out of the California high school ranks, has used his combination of solid stuff and advanced pitchability to thrive in several of those situations. He reached Triple-A at age 21 in 2018, the first place he's truly struggled.

Lambert has used a four-pitch mix to knock on the big league door. His bread-and-butter has been his fastball-changeup combination, a sinking heater in the low-90s that touches 96 mph on occasion and a plus offspeed pitch with tumble that keeps hitters off-balance. The biggest progress Lambert made in 2018 was the improvement of his curve. Once more of a loopy breaking ball, it has more sharpness and late break to it, turning into a true out pitch that should lead to more strikeouts in the future. He mirrors his fastball release point with the pitch and because he has such great fastball command, hitters have no idea what's coming. He'll also still mix in his slider, his fourth best pitch, but one that still is Major League-average.

Lambert learned in Triple-A that he couldn't survive if he didn't hit his spots down in the zone. Always one to learn, he made adjustments and finished the year with 11 shutout innings, something the Rockies think will carry over to a big 2019 season.
