SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Jake Lamb is tired of being asked about his move across the diamond. He's just ready to get the regular season going.
After five big league seasons as a third baseman, Lamb is set to start the season at first base, a spot vacated when All-Star Paul Goldschmidt was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals over the offseason. Eduardo Escobar was deemed a better option at the hot corner, and Lamb's position switch will keep his bat in the lineup.
"I'm ready to go. Ready to get the season going and start off on a good note," Lamb said.
