    Lee could pose an interesting conundrum for teams looking to draft him. Committed to Liberty as a two-way player, Lee has made significant strides both at the plate and on the mound this spring, and scouts are divided as to whether they like him more as a position player or a pitcher. Showing a mid-80s fastball when he first committed, Lee has worked 91-93 mph this spring from the left side, touching 94 and showing some feel for spinning the ball. But the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Lee has also shown growth in his position player skill set, running 4.2 or under down the line, and his strong arm plays well in the outfield. Though his frame is compact, he has enough bat speed and pop that most teams considered him a hitting prospect early this spring. But with his blossoming velocity, Lee might be a more attractive pitching option. The confusion over his position could serve Liberty well, as Lee would have the opportunity to play both ways if he happens to make it to campus.
