CBB Top 100 Countdown: Number 92 Will Lamb (Clemson)

WillLambHeadshot The CBB continues our countdown for the 2010 College Baseball season by checking in on the Top 100 Players in the country. We will be providing one player per day until we reach number 1.

We continue the list today with number 92 in our countdown with Clemson sophomore LHP/outfielder Will Lamb who is listed at 6’4 and 170 pounds. He is from Seaford Virginia and attended York High School where he lettered in baseball for all four years and picked up a letter in basketball. He was named All-State in Virginia as a junior and senior. In his junior season, he hit .508 with a 4-2 record and a 1.60 ERA on the mound.

Lamb made an impact on the Clemson baseball squad in the spring of 2009 as he played in 27 games (11 starts) compiling a .268 batting average with no homers and six RBI. He was solid on the basepaths as he stole four bases in five attempts. Lamb also saw time on the hill as he appeared in 15 games (1 start) for a total of 22 innings. His ERA was a solid 2.45 while striking out 15 batters.

He spent the summer of 2009 in the Coastal Plain League with the Peninsula Pilots. He had a .236 average with one homer and 12 RBI while accumulating an absurd WillLambClemson 26 stolen bases in 29 attempts. Lamb pitched in six games where he had less then stellar stats of 1-3 with a 6.23 ERA in 30.1 innings. He continued his high strikeout rate as he had a 1.05 strikeouts per inning. Baseball America and PGCrossChecker both named him the best prospect in the Coastal Plain League for his incredible size and speed. The biggest issue for Lamb is whether he will be able to hit for a higher average over the next two seasons before the 2011 MLB Draft.
