Dodgers pitching prospect Zach Lee not ruling out return to football

If Los Angeles Dodgers pitching prospect Zach Lee's professional baseball career doesn't pan out how he hopes it will, there's a good chance he would trade the diamond for the gridiron.A two-sport star athlete at McKinney High School in north Texas, Lee had a scholarship offer to play quarterback at LSU, and planned to attend the SEC powerhouse and continue playing baseball there...

Dodgers have easy Rule 5 protection decisions

Mike reset the 40-man roster on Monday, and it’s already pretty full. Sure, there will be guys who opt-out, get designated for assignment/released and traded at some point this winter. The Dodgers also have to make a couple decisions on adding prospects to the 40-man roster. Last year, the Dodgers added Zach Lee, Chris Reed and Scott Schebler to the 40-man roster to protect them...

Here’s To You, Mike Bolsinger

I know this happened a few days ago, but it’s still worth noting now, I think. After Mat Latos and Alex Wood came to town, you knew Mike Bolsinger‘s job in the rotation was going away. You thought, well, maybe he’d stick around in the bullpen, but with more names than the roster could handle, there just wasn’t room. He was optioned back to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday...

Dodgers 5, Angels 3: Have a Day, Andre Ethier

How did Mat Latos do in his Dodgers debut? Depends on how you look at such things. It’s difficult to look at “six innings, one run allowed” and not think, well, that’s pretty good, and a whole lot better than Zach Lee or Brandon Beachy or the recent parade of fill-in starters have been able to do. On the other hand, he only struck out one batter, and… Latos only had three...

Mets 15, Dodgers 2: ‘Eggs’ Zach Lee Gets His Yolk Scrambled

Zach Lee made his MLB debut today and pitched the Dodgers to a 15-2 loss to the Mets in a disaster of a debut. Lee had quite the welcoming party to the MLB, as the first four batters reached via a walk and three singles. Lee only got his first out on a liner into the shift, and then allowed two more singles before inducing a double play for a total of four runs in his first MLB...

Dodgers @ Mets July 25, 2015: The Zach Lee Era Has Begun

I won’t pretend to know anything more than what Dustin wrote back in April, but it’s exciting to see the 2010 first round pick in major league action for the first...

Dodgers call up Lee to make major league debut vs Mets

NEW YORK (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers called up starting pitcher Zach Lee from Triple-A Oklahoma City to make his major league debut Saturday night against the New York Mets. To make room for Lee, the Dodgers optioned pitcher Ian Thomas to Oklahoma City. Lee, a first-round draft pick of the Dodgers in 2010, is 9-3 with a 2.29 ERA in 14 starts.

Braves 7, Dodgers 5: Frustration

Well, that wasn’t boring, at least. Let’s be straight honest about Brandon Beachy, who dug the Dodgers a hole by going only four innings and allowing four runs, including Nick Markakis‘ first (!) homer of the season: He’s coming back from really, really far away. You know about his history of arm injuries by now, and that he’s even in the big leagues again is remarkable...

Nationals 5, Dodgers 3 / Wait, Zach Lee?

Should have just kept playing with the lights off, probably. So the resumption of the suspended game started off well enough. Adrian Gonzalez poked an opposite-field homer over the left field wall in the sixth to tie it at three — he’s the first player to homer in both parts of a suspended game since Joe Carter in 1996 — and Chin-hui Tsao looked pretty good in his return to...
