Cubs Lose Two in Rule 5 Draft
Morla, 22, spent all of last season at Class-A Peoria, where he was 4-3 with a 4.00 ERA in 43 games in relief. He struck out 86 and walked 20 in 78 2/3 innings.
Chicago got Morla from the Oakland A's the previous off-season as part of a trade that shipped INF Aaron Miles and Jake Fox to Oakland for three minor leaguers.
Lambert, who turns 25 Saturday, had a bit more service time in the Cubs' system. Drafted in the sixth round from Virginia in 2007, he spent the past four seasons at various levels in the organization – most of them as a reliever.
Lambert advanced to Triple-A Iowa in 2009 before having his season cut short due to injury. He underwent Tommy John surgery after the season and returned last June in the Arizona Rookie League, eventually working his way back up to Class High-A Daytona. He was 1-0 with a 2.95 ERA in 14 games there.
