Mike Lamb Designated

TUESDAY: MLB.com's Jim Molony suggests Lamb could be a fit for the Phillies, Cubs, Mets, or Brewers.

MONDAY: According to Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, third baseman Mike Lamb was designated for assignment today to make room for Eddie Guardado.   Manager Ron Gardenhire questioned Lamb's energy level.

Lamb is owed another $690K this year plus $3MM in '09 and a $100K buyout for '10.  Several moves and near-moves made by the Twins in recent months have shown a willingness to spend some dough midseason.

Lamb's move back to the AL didn't work out; he hit just .233/.276/.322 in 261 plate appearances.  Maybe he can help out in a utility role for a team like the Phillies.
