RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

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.
