WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

The Pirates signed Lee as part of their effort to get a foot in the door in Australia.  He was signed by Tony Harris, who coaches baseball down under and also works as a scout for the Pirates.  Lee throws in the mid-80s and relies on location.

2011
R:  1-1-2, 3.89 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 34.2 IP, 2.1 BB/9, 6.0 K/9 

Held his own in the GCL, although he didn’t fan a lot.  Lee was much more effective after moving to the bullpen and pitching in 1-2 inning stints.  Opponents hit .301 against him as a starter but only .222 as a reliever.  He did, however, have better walk and K numbers as a starter.

2012
R:  4-1-1, 3.28 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, 24.2 IP, 1.8 BB/9, 8.0 K/9

Lee returned to the GCL and pitched well out of the bullpen, including an improved K rate.

Lee should move up to the New York-Penn League in 2013.

NOTE:  Some sources, including MiLB.com and even the Pirates’ media guide, list Lee as a RHP, but the photo above is him. Confusion about Lee seems to be widespread, as Fangraphs doesn’t even have a page for him.
