    Lee had a rough return to his native Arkansas after two seasons at Meridian (Miss.) CC. He pitched erratically most of the season and served a suspension from the team for disciplinary reasons. Among college lefthanders, Lee's raw stuff ranks in the top three in the country. His fastball touches 94 mph and he was almost unhittable this spring on the rare occasions when he had command of it and his curve, slider and changeup. Lee had a habit of losing his stuff quickly after a couple of dominating innings, which led the Razorbacks to move him to the bullpen late in the year. He took to that role immediately.
