KANSAS CITY -- John Lamb was named Pitcher of the Week in the Carolina League. The 22-year-old tossed seven shutout innings, allowing three hits and no walks with eight strikeouts for Class A Advanced Wilmington last week. The Royals' fifth-ranked prospect, according to MLB.com, is recovering from a 2011 Tommy John surgery and is 3-4 with a 5.27 ERA this season.

Raul Mondesi, son of the former National League Rookie of the Year Award winner and two-time Gold Glove Award winner of the same name, hit for the cycle Monday night for Class A Lexington. The 17-year-old switch-hitting shortstop has three home runs in the last two games and is batting .342 in his last 10 games. He is hitting .247 with four home runs on the season.
