Jimmy Lambert

The Chicago White Sox might be forced to make a pitching call-up soon.

Both Lucas Giolito and Lance Lynn are missing from the Chicago White Sox right now. Lucas is probably going to miss about two starts and Lynn has about another three to miss. The rotation will be as good as any in baseball when they are healthy but that will take a few weeks.

One person who could get the call up in their spot is Jimmy Lambert. He has made a few different MLB appearances before and had mixed results. He has already made a start for the Charlotte Knights so he is already going this season.

The White Sox might need him at some point in 2022. It could be now and it could be later. Jimmy Lambert has had some ups and downs and is now sitting as the number 16 prospect in the White Sox farm system according to MLB Pipeline.

He has the talent to get to the next level but he needs to go out there and do it. He is probably running out of looks but 2022 could be the year that he is used if the injuries to pitchers continue to pile up.

We don’t know when or if the White Sox will use any of these guys but they are there if needed. It is a long season and every team needs their farm systems at their best in order to make it through strong. We can only hope that the White Sox get what they need from everyone.
