Taber Lee, ss

School: San Diego State U. Class: Jr.
Hometown: Olympia, Wash.
B-T: B-R Ht.: 6-0 Wt.: 185 Birthdate: 10/18/80
Previously Drafted: Not drafted.
Scouting Report: In a draft lacking in quality middle infielders, Lee stands out. Some scouts say he would be no better than an eighth- to 12th-round pick in a normal year, but he is expected to go as high as the second or third round. The top prospect in the New England Collegiate League last summer, Lee has improved his skills dramatically since his sophomore season. He has shown excellent actions, hands, range and arm strength at shortstop and had committed just 13 errors in almost 300 chances this season. He also runs well. His game bears little similarity to that of older brother Travis, a first baseman with the Phillies. Travis signed a record $10 million deal with the Diamondbacks in 1996 out of San Diego State as a draft loophole free agent and had considerably more power than his younger brother. Even though his average hovered around .360 this season, Taber's bat is weakest tool. He has little or no power.
