After being selected in the fourth round of this week’s Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft Tuesday, Robinson High grad Chris Lee has signed a contract with the Houston Astros.
Lee signed a six-year, minor-league contract with the club Wednesday and will report to the Gulf Coast League Astros in Kissimmee on Friday.
Taken 130th overall, Lee spent this past season playing at Santa Fe College in Gainesville. The lefty went 3-3 this season with a save and a 2.85 ERA. He also struck out 42 batters, while walking 21. In 41 innings of work, Lee gave up just 13 earned runs.
During the 2010 draft, Lee was selected in the 37th round by the Chicago White Sox, opting to play at SFC instead.
Lee was one of 50 selections made by the Astros during the three-day draft and was one of six left-hand pitchers the club picked up.
