This is what the Astros said about Cameron:-
A fairly highly touted international signing out of Australia in 2007, Lamb has consistently struggled with injuries as a minor leaguer. He had Tommy John surgery in 2008 and has had trouble getting his feet under him since, but he settled into a bullpen role in 2012, though it saw him throw just 25.2 innings. He showed good command and didn’t allow a single home run while posting excellent ground ball numbers, but it’s very difficult to judge him based on a sample of that size. There are things to like here, but it’s very difficult to determine what exactly the Astros have here. He’s a reclamation project, but one worth taking on.
