Chris Lee Left Handed Starter

I just took a look at his baseball prospectus scouting report and looks like they rate his slider and change as below average offerings. So that must be it.

A good fastball is usually enough to rack up the K's in the minors if you have anything resembling a decent secondary offering. I guess he doesn't have that. Would need to develop one though and maybe the change too if he wants to stick as a starter. He's 23, so not exactly a spring chicken from a prospect standpoint.

So Lee doesn't have a change or a breaking pitch? Only a fastball? Why are the Orioles so high on him?

He has three distinct pitches that I saw him throw. Very efficient. BP Old report.

Another strong outing last night. But only 3 k's in 7 innings. Any reason he's not missing more bats? Fastball is supposed to be mid-90's, no?

Doesn't Lee's throw a sinker, or have sink on his FB? He got 10 GB outs. That could be the reason for lack of K's. They were grounding out before K'ing.

I thought it was a cutter myself.

The O's are going to need an effective lefty (other than Britton) in the pen sooner than later. What's the probability that Lee is in the O's pen by early July? Seems like a DD/Buck kind of move to me.

I think you're probably right.

At the Hangout/Pressbox forum on Saturday, both Stan and Tony felt Lee would contribute this season.
