Is he throwing out the first pitch there?!?!?! Fastball tops out at 68 MPH?

I tweeted at the Auburn beat writer asking for how velocity reports... but nothing as of yet.

Edit: According to nationalsprospects.com, Lee throws in the high 80's.

Just kidding around. Just not the most impressive looking biomechanics I've ever seen photographed.

It can't be him at full torque though, since he's pitching for the Nats and we can't see the inverted W.

Interesting his fastball is below average yet his K numbers are well above average.

Maybe there's deception in his delivery? Or maybe his secondary stuff is plus?

Tommy Milone used to get a ton of K's at low levels too.

On harrisburg's 60 day DL for a non-displaced fracture of his elbow.

Lee is recovering from what manager Dusty Baker called a non-displaced fracture of his left elbow.

“He’s supposed to go north today to see our doctors and to make an evaluation exactly what they’re going to do for him,” Baker said.

One pitch after surrendering a game-tying homer to the Cardinals’ Patrick Wisdom in Jupiter on Sunday, Lee walked off the mound at Roger Dean Stadium, head athletic trainer Paul Lessard by his side.

“We knew it was something because of the way he was kind of grimmacing the other day,” Baker said. “But we didn’t know the severity of it. Fortunately, it’s not any ligament damage or anything like that. There’s a clear fracture. It’s straight across. Like I said, I’m not a doctor, but they said that that was probably as good as it could get.”
