RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

After an ugly 2014 that saw Lee post a 5.38 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 150.2 Triple-A innings, Lee turned things around in 2015. In 19 starts for Triple-A Oklahoma City, Lee posted a 2.70 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 113.1 innings, ultimately leading to his major league debut on July 25. That didn't go so well, as the Mets touched him up for seven runs in just 4.2 innings. Lee was shipped back to Triple-A where he spent the rest of the season, finishing with a 3.22 ERA in his final seven starts. The former LSU quarterback commit is now 24 years old with one ugly big league start under his belt, so it's very safe to say that he's been a bit of a disappointment since the Dodgers drafted him in the first round in 2010. Lee is in the mix for the final rotation spot this spring, but even if he wins the job, starters returning from injury in late-April and mid-May should force him back to Triple-A.

2015

Going into last season, Lee still profiled as a mid-rotation starter, but itís hard to envision that outcome after his abysmal 2014 campaign. Lee was famously given a huge signing bonus after he was drafted in 2010 to pry him out of his commitment to play quarterback at LSU. But after posting a 5.38 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 150.2 innings at Triple-A Oklahoma City, the 6-foot-4 righty may want to consider going the Brandon Weeden route and picking up the pigskin again. Perhaps the most concerning development with Lee was his sharp decline in strikeouts. After putting up a 22.5% strikeout rate in 2013 at Double-A, he managed just a 14.5% rate last season at Triple-A. If he is not preventing runs and not missing bats, then there is really no reason for dynasty league owners to continue to hold Lee, especially given the team context.

2014

Lee had a solid season for Double-A Chattanooga, tossing 142.2 innings of 3.22 ERA ball with a 131:35 K:BB. Despite his lofty draft status and $5 million-plus signing bonus, Lee profiles more as a mid-to-back end rotation starter. He took a solid step forward this year with an 8.3 K/9 and 2.2 BB/9, and expect Lee to open 2014 in Triple-A, with a mid-2014 debut likely if the need arises in the Dodgers' rotation.

2013

At first glance, Lee's 4.39 ERA across two minor league levels (High-A and Double-A) doesn't seem all that impressive. The fact he did it at the age of 20 with solid ratios (7.7 K/9, 2.4 BB/9) makes it look much better. Lee was the team's top pick in the 2010 draft, and while he is probably more of a mid-rotation type starter than future Cy Young candidate, he can still add plenty of value. He'll likely open 2013 in Double-A and depending on performance and club need, a debut this season is certainly possible.

2012

It was a successful first full season for the team's 2010 first-round pick, as the former LSU quarterback recruit (doesn't appear that he's missed all that much) posted a 3.47 ERA, 1.220 WHIP and 91:32 K:BB in 109 innings for Low-A Great Lakes. He's probably a top-50 overall prospect, and if you're looking to project him out, figure his upside is somewhere between that of Clayton Kershaw and Chad Billingsley. He'll likely open in High-A with the potential for a 2013 big league debut.

2011

In a big surprise, the financially-hindered Dodgers were able to lure Lee away from an opportunity to become the LSU starting quarterback with a last-minute $5.25 million bonus to play baseball. He immediately becomes the team's No. 1 prospect, offering a strong arm and very good athleticism. We don't know where he'll begin his professional career, but his talent is such that a 2013 major league debut is very possible.
