Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 30 | Run: 70 | Arm: 55 | Field: 60 | Overall: 45

Lee began his college career at Pearl River CC, playing two seasons there before transferring to Mississippi. A strong junior campaign with the Rebels netted him 12th-round selection by the Rays, and Lee rewarded the organization with a successful full-season debut with Class A Advance Charlotte in 2015. A move up to Double-A the following year proved a challenge for Lee but he bounced back to post a Southern League-best .309 average in 2017, and did so despite being traded to Miami in July. He continued to boost his stock in the Arizona Fall League, prompting the Marlins to add him to their 40-man roster, and then made his big league debut with the club in early 2018.

His 2016 performance aside, Lee has a strong track record of hitting. He employs a compact left-handed swing that allows him to spray balls across the entire field and fuels his potential to hit for average. His patient approach results in some swing-and-miss but also plenty of walks and solid on-base skills. A plus runner, Lee is aggressive on the basepaths but needs to refine his basestealing technique.

Lee's plus-plus speed translates better in center field, where he's a plus defender with good instincts and considerable range. His above-average arm strength is an asset there and allows him to profile at all three outfield spots. That versatility could make Lee a valuable fourth outfielder at the highest level, though an everyday role isn't yet out of the question.
