Down on the Farm – Quakes Place Zach Lee on DL

Dodgers 2010 first round draft pick and top pitching prospect Zach Lee was placed on the disabled list last Friday just prior to what would have been his ninth start of the season for the Dodgers Advanced Single-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. Lee strained his groin during his previous start which team officials had hoped would heal in time for his scheduled Friday night start but decided not to risk further injury and shut the 20-year-old right-hander down.

Lee will rehab his injury at Extended Spring Training at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, AZ

Lee, who is 2-2 with a 5.13 ERA through eight starts this season, has been sent to Extended Spring Training at Camelback Ranch to rehab his injury. Greg Wilborn, who was a starter for the Quakes last season, will take Lee’s spot in the rotation. Wilborn is 1-0 with a 6.23 ERA in nine relief appearances.

    Sorry to hear that, but much prefer a groin injury to an arm injury, for a baseball player, that is.

  2. Evan Bladh says:

    They are taking the wise and cautious road thank goodness. Let him heal completely. The last thing the Dodgers need is for Lee to alter his delivery to compensate for the injury and then develop arm issues.

    Here is a recent photo that I took of Zach (sorry that it’s a bit fuzzy). In it you can see that he takes an exceptionally long stride in his delivery and rolls his right foot under. I can see where this would put a lot of strain on the groin muscle.
