If Jake Lamb can become the powerful presence he was before being saddled with injuries the past few years, the Braves may have adequately addressed one of their bench needs.
The Braves and Lamb are in agreement on a one-year contract, according to a source. The deal is pending the results of a physical and intake testing. The club has not announced the agreement.
Lamb totaled 59 homers and produced an .843 OPS for the D-backs over the 2016 and 2017 seasons. But the 30-year-old corner infielder has battled multiple injuries over the past three seasons.
