Dodgers move top prospect Lee to Double-A
SAN FRANCISCO -- Zach Lee, the two-sport star the Dodgers signed for a franchise-record $5.25 million two years ago, was promoted Tuesday from Class A Rancho Cucamonga to Double-A Chattanooga.

Lee, ranked by MLB.com as the club's top prospect, was 2-3 with a 4.55 ERA in 12 starts. In 55 1/3 innings, he yielded 60 hits and 10 walks, while striking out 52.

Lee's promotion has a dual purpose. Not only will it tell the Dodgers how close Lee is to reaching the Major Leagues, it will showcase him against better competition for clubs that will want him in a trade.

Despite the investment the Dodgers have made to sign Lee away from a quarterback job with LSU, the right-hander could become the centerpiece of any deadline deal the Dodgers make this summer.
