2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Lee is widely regarded as the Rays' top prospect, though he did not have an excellent year in 2012 at Double-A Montgomery. After a strong 2011, Lee hit .259/.334/.358 with four home runs and 37 RBI, but he did total 37 stolen bases in 2012. He increased his steal efficiency, getting caught nine times compared to 16 the previous season. He will need to improve his on-base percentage and polish up defensively (24 errors in 2012), but the Rays still believe his speed and ability will lead him to the big leagues. With Tampa Bay trading for Yunel Escobar, Lee will probably spend most of the season in the minor leagues. Although, if the Rays need to shift around the middle infield, Lee could still have his number called as soon as 2013.

2012

Lee dominated at High-A Charlotte, batting .318 with four home runs and 28 stolen bases before being promoted to Double-A Montgomery. As most minor leaguers do, he struggled with adjusting to the higher level hitting only .190 over 100 at-bats. Lee is still figuring things out on the basepaths, finishing 33-for-49 (67 percent) between the two levels. While he may develop more power, his biggest potential fantasy asset will be his speed. The Rays brought Lee into the organization as an insurance policy in case that Tim Beckham doesn't pan out as their shortstop of the future. Lee will begin the season back at Double-A Montgomery with an eye on a promotion to Triple-A Durham later in the season.

2011

Lee hit .282/.354/.351 with 32 steals in 485 at-bats for Low-A Peoria in the Midwest League last year, and drew positive reviews for his speed, on-base skills and defense. He hasn't shown any power, but he didn't turn 20 until November, and there's still time for him to develop, given his 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame. Expect Lee to see time at High-A and possibly Double-A this year, even after the Cubs traded him to the Rays as part of the Matt Garza deal in January.

2010

Lee acquitted himself very well as an 18-year-old in the short season Northwest League, going .330/.399/.420 with 25 stolen bases in 33 attempts. He has excellent range at shortstop and a cannon for an arm, but is still unpolished and error prone. At 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, Lee should develop more power, and he's already shown good on-base skills. Lee, who should start the year at Low-A Peoria, has as much upside as any prospect in the Cubs' system.

2009

A high school star in Korea, Lee is still several years away from the majors, but scouts rave about his defense, his arm and his speed, and at 6-2, 185 pounds, Lee should develop good power.
