Dodgers sign No. 1 pick Zach Lee
The Dodgers barely beat the clock, signing first-round pick Zach Lee on Monday, just minutes before their exclusive negotiating window with the two-sport star was about to expire.
Lee, who many teams considered unsignable after the 6-foot-4 right-handed pitcher expressed a desire to play football at Louisiana State, was battling for a spot on the Tigers' depth chart at quarterback this summer.
Terms were not released but reports have put the terms at $5.25 million over five years.
