no. 4 Khalil Lee of/lhp flint hill 2016

aPBR Notes

3.7.16:  Lee is an athletic outfielder with a strong lower half that hits from the left side of the plate. He has an open athletic stance and a smooth load back. He has a slightly longer swing path with good extension through the ball and incredible hand and bat speed that make up for any length in his swing. He has an explosive lower half and maintains balance throughout his swing. Lee has power to all fields and the potential to have big power to all fields. In the outfield, he gets good jumps on balls and takes good routes. He has a quick release and a plus arm in center from a high three-quarters arm slot with a long, loose arm action. While he is quick, he is probably more of a corner outfielder in the future and he plays the game faster than he runs. On the mound, Lee throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a smooth tall and fall delivery. He has a long, loose, lightning fast arm action and generates velocity with minimal effort. His shoulders are closed uphill as he strides out on line and finishes in an athletic position. Lee fields his position very well. Lee’s fastball sat 89-90 and touched 91 in his first inning of work. He had very good downward plane on it with late run. In his second inning of work he tailed off a bit to 87-89, and this was after playing five innings in center and making a few throws. He showed very good command of his fastball, moving it in and out, up and down. He also showed a tight, 2/8 breaking slider that had more cutter action and ran 76-79.

Lee finished his high school career ranked as the No. 2  player in the Virginia/DC class of 2016 rankings and No. 29 in the PBR Overall Rankings. Lee was one of five Virginia players in the PBR Draft 100, featuring the top 100 high school players across the country per PBR National Scouting Director Nathan Rode.  A Liberty commit, Lee was a third round pick of the Kansas City Royals and signed. In his first professional season, Lee hit .269 with a .396 OBP and 21 extra base-hits (6 HR) in 49 games for the AZL Royals in Rookie Ball.
