Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb is out for the season with a left shoulder injury, Arizona announced Thursday.
Jake Lamb will have surgery on his left shoulder and is expected to miss the rest of the 2018 season.

Lamb has not played since July 26 as he has been dealing with a rotator cuff injury.
Arizona manager Torey Lovullo told the Athletic this week, Lamb’s shoulder cuff is fraying and he was considering surgery.
The Diamondbacks have not announced any plans for surgery for Lamb as of yet, but that may be the next logical step.
Lamb, 27, was a 2017 All-Star and was batting .222 with six home runs and 31 RBIs before leaving the July 26 game with the injury.
Arizona acquired infielder Eduardo Escobar from the Twins before the trade deadline, so he is likely to get the majority of reps at third base in Lamb’s absence.
