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.
