Mike Lamb Clears Waivers

May 12th: Having cleared waivers, Lamb will join the Marlins' Triple A club today according to Larry Holder of the Times-Picayune.  As a member of the Zephyrs, Lamb will be reunited with Jason Lane, another member of the Astros' 2005 World Series club.

May 6th: The Marlins have designated Mike Lamb for assignment, tweets Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.  Outfielder Bryan Petersen has been called up from Triple-A New Orleans and will join the team effective tomorrow.

Lamb has had just 18 plate appearances in 17 games this season for Florida.  The corner infielder spent 2009 in the Mets' farm system and was signed by the Fish to a minor league deal in February.  Soon after he signed, it was reported that the Marlins were still on the lookout for a lefty bat off of the bench.  It appears that they have found that lefty bat in-house.

The 34-year-old had a less-than-stellar stint in Triple-A Buffalo last season, posting an OPS of .669 in 119 games.
