McKinney High alumnus Zach Lee will be the starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers during Friday’s spring training baseball game against the Texas Rangers, the Dodgers announced. The game will be televised nationally by MLB Network at 4 p.m. on a two-hour tape delay.
It will be Lee’s first start of the Spring after being slowed by a strained lat muscle, according to mlb.com.
Lee, 22, was the Dodgers’ first-round draft pick in 2010 out of MHS. He signed after changing his mind about accepting a football scholarship to play quarterback for LSU.
Last season, Lee pitched for Class AA Chattanooga, where he went 10-10 with a 3.22 earned run average.
