2011 MLB Draft: Texas Rangers Use 3rd Round Pick on Left Hander Will Lamb

The third round of the 2011 MLB Draft is underway and the Texas Rangers have made their one and only pick in the third round.

LHP Will Lamb (6'6" 180 lbs) - Clemson University

Will Lamb should be an open-and-shut case for Major League scouts. He is 6-foot-6, left-handed and throws 90 mph.

Lamb is also a first-rate center fielder, so good this season at Clemson that scouts are telling him he's likely to begin his professional career there. -- David Teel, Virginia Daily Press

Lamb threw only 24 2/3 innings this year, with an ERA north of 5, spending more time in centerfield than on the mound. -- Adam Morris, Lonestarball.com

Clean delivery; excellent arm action; long levers; plus FB; promising SL; will improve when focused on pitching. -- Jason Parks, Baseball Prospectus
