CHEN-CHANG LEE RUMORS

White Sox broadcaster refers to pitcher's 'typical Asian motion'

Chicago White Sox broadcaster Hawk Harrelson is best known for being a huge homer and not for delivering play-by-play with the type of tact that legends like Vin Scully display. So it’s probably not too surprising to hear the poor phrasing he used when talking about Cleveland Indians pitcher Chen-Chang Lee. Lee is a relief […]

2014 IBI Positional Rankings: The Right-handed Relievers

Today we move on to the right-handed relief pitchers in our annual IBI positional rankings.

Pestano left the game with two outs in the ninth and the tying...

Indians option Vinnie Pestano to Columbus, recall C.C. Lee

Fresh off of a ninth inning that left a lot to be desired, the Cleveland Indians have optioned relief pitcher Vinnie Pestano to Columbus and recalled C.C. Lee. Pestano, who had (by all accounts) regained the velocity which had escaped him a year prior, will leave the big league club with a 13.50 ERA in three relief appearances. With a fastball that has been clocked in the high...

What to Expect from C.C. Lee in 2014

Chen-Chang Lee was called the most Major League ready Indians' prospect at the beginning of 2013 (by BurningRiverBaseball) and the number two prospect in 2012 (behind T.J. McFarland, who was taken in the 2013 Rule 5 Draft). Since he was signed as a 21 year old out of Taiwan in 2008, he has been one of the Indians best relief prospects and he finally made his debut last year....

Prospect ranking turnover shows that Indians might still be bad at drafting

Brad Grant, Indians Director of Amateur Scouting For the last few years, since making the historic C.C. Sabathia and Cliff Lee trades, the Cleveland Indians have been banking on an improved minor league development system.
