    LHP Nick Lee (smallish power lefty has command/delivery issues and likely fits in pen sooner than later, but has four pitches and starts for now to develop his stuff; 90-93, touching 96 mph, above average curveball, fringy changeup and below average slider)
    From Fangraphs circa 2015.

    Pretty high walk rates. Does he go on the forty man roster?
    Definitely not.

    This should be in the minor league transactions thread, the soon to be 28 year old walked 175 batters in 301 minor league innings for the Nationals org.

    Ok, so Lee's issue throught his career was walks. A crazy amount of walks. Still had that problem in Association ball.

    But what about this guy?

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Hopefully he gets the nickname T-Bone and not Koko.
