    Lee began the season as the Ragin' Cajuns' Saturday starter, but he struggled and was eventually slid back into the bullpen. He embraced the role, which is more likely the one he will fill in pro ball as well. The 6-foot-5, 190-pound righthander has an above-average 92-96 mph fastball, an above-average changeup and a below-average slider. His rock-and-fire delivery involves some effort, as he yanks his head through his delivery, but his arm is fast and he throws just enough strikes with his fringe-average control to make it all work.
