I'm not kidding ewe. The Arizona Diamondbacks really did bring a lamb into their clubhouse to fire up the All-Star voting campaign for third baseman Jake Lamb.

Lamb, and the lamb, posed patiently for pictures prior to Wednesday night's game against the San Diego Padres.

Pitcher Rubby De La Rosa even got the lamb to wear a sombrero and sit in Lamb's locker. And the lamb, obtained from a local petting zoo, left a memento on the floor of the Diamondbacks dugout.

Lamb is one of five players up for the final spot on the National League All-Star team. Fans will decide in a vote that closes Friday.

Paul Goldschmidt, who currently stands as the only Diamondback headed to this year's All-Star Game, joined Twitter on Wednesday for the sole purpose of helping his teammate join him.

Maybe it will be Lamb in a "Lambslide."
