Rockies' Peter Lambert: Should be ready for spring
Rockies general manager Bill Schmidt said Friday that Lambert (elbow) is expected to be ready to go for the start of spring training, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Between the minors and majors, Lambert has covered just 30.1 innings since the start of the 2020 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in June of that year. Though he dealt with related forearm and elbow issues in 2022, the 25-year-old right-hander looks to have avoided another surgery and should be ready to compete for a back-end rotation spot with the Rockies this spring. However, given that he owns a 7.48 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over 95 innings in the majors and has struggled to stay on the mound in recent years, Lambert is more likely to open the season at Triple-A Albuquerque to shake off the rust before Colorado potentially gives him another look....

Rockies' Peter Lambert: Set for season debut
Lambert (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Lambert is expected to make a one-inning start for Albuquerque in what will mark his first appearance in affiliated ball of the season. He missed the entire 2020 campaign and most of the 2021 campaign while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he was expected to be back at full strength for spring training. However, he battled right forearm inflammation in camp, which ended any hope he had of winning a back-end rotation role with the big club. The Rockies still plan to have Lambert build up for starting duties during his rehab assignment, but he could be optioned to Albuquerque once his rehab window comes to a close.... See More ...

Lambert (forearm) will throw one inning at extended spring training May 14, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Lambert has been sidelined to start the 2022 season due to arm pain while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery.

It's unclear how many additional rehab outings Lambert may need to build up his arm strength and return from the injured list. The Rockies' rotation currently features a stable five starters, so Lambert will likely either pitch out of the big-league bullpen or be optioned to the minors once activated.... See More ...

Lambert (elbow) made the fifth appearance of his rehab assignment at Double-A Hartford on Sunday, striking out five over 2.2 innings while allowing one run on one hit and no walks.

Lambert may not have enough time left this season to return from the 60-day injured list and fill a spot in the Colorado rotation, but he could fill a bullpen role for the big club over the final few weeks....
