I did not realize until this morning that Evan Lee is a draft-eligible sophomore, so he is one to watch in next month’s draft.
So, Matt, do you think Lee will go (if he goes) high enough that he would entertain leaving? He’s certainly has some leverage, I would think.
I don’t know enough about his situation to say one way or the other. There is going to be a lot of roster turnover on the team next year, so it’s conceivable that he could elevate his stock as a hitter and pitcher by coming back another year. He’ll have leverage again in 2019.
Evan’s father was/is a professional baseball scout, so I’m sure they know how to navigate this process.
