Brewers' Chris Lee: Lands with Brewers
Lee's contract was purchased by the Brewers on Tuesday.

Lee has yet to pitch in the majors, but he posted a 4.10 ERA and 32 strikeouts over 26.1 innings with St. Paul of the American Association last year.... See More ... See Less
Chris Lee: Released by Orioles
Lee was released by the Orioles on Thursday.
The 26-year-old lefty has yet to pitch above the Triple-A level. He recorded a 5.91 ERA in 45.2 innings for Triple-A Norfolk this season.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Chris Lee: Returns to action
Lee (illness) allowed one run on two hits and one walk while striking out one across one inning Tuesday against the Rays.
Tuesday's appearance marked Lee's first of spring, as an illness kept the southpaw out of early action. The 26-year-old is expected to open the season back at Triple-A Norfolk, where he owns a 5.58 ERA, 1.81 WHIP and 91:64 K:BB across 127.1 innings (23 starts, nine relief appearances) over the last two seasons....

Orioles' Chris Lee: Held back by illness
Lee has yet to pitch this spring due to illness, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Lee is expected to return to the mound soon, which would give him still enough time to build up to game shape by Opening Day. The 26-year-old is unlikely to spend that day on the big-league roster, as he's yet to conquer the Triple-A level, posting a 5.58 ERA over parts of two seasons for Norfolk.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Chris Lee: Back with Baltimore on minors deal
Lee signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Tuesday, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Lee will stick in Baltimore's system after being cast off the team's 40-man roster earlier in the season. The 26-year-old lefty owns a 5.58 ERA, 1.81 WHIP and 91:64 K:BB through 127.1 with Triple-A Norfolk over the past two seasons. He figures to report back to Triple-A to begin the 2019 campaign....

Orioles' Chris Lee: Dropped from 40-man roster
The Orioles outrighted Lee (undisclosed) to Double-A Bowie on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Lee had occupied a spot on Triple-A Norfolk's 7-day disabled list since late May due to the unspecified injury before beginning a rehab assignment in the Gulf Coast League just over a week ago. Even though Lee is seemingly back to full health, the Orioles no longer deemed him worthy of a 40-man roster spot, nor was he viewed as a candidate for the Triple-A rotation.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Chris Lee: Will return from disabled list Friday
Lee (oblique) will take the mound for Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, David Hall of The Virginian-Pilot reports.
Lee has been sidelined with a right oblique injury since late February but appears to be ready to return to the Tide at the Triple-A level after participating in a couple extended spring training games the past two weeks. During 27 games with Norfolk in 2017, Lee accumulated a 5.11 ERA and 1.71 WHIP over 116.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Chris Lee: Nearing rehab assignment
Lee (oblique) threw 3.2 innings at extended spring training Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The pitching prospect seems to be progressing well in his rehab program. The expectation is that Lee will throw five innings Saturday before embarking on a rehab assignment with a minor-league affiliate, so it seems like he's still at least a couple weeks away from a full return to action....

Orioles' Chris Lee: Will throw bullpen Saturday
Lee (oblique) will toss a bullpen session Saturday, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Lee went down with an oblique injury in late February but was able to resume throwing earlier this mound and will finally get back on the mound this weekend. During 27 appearances with Triple-A Norfolk last season, Lee logged a 5.11 ERA and 1.71 WHIP over 116.1 innings. Expect a better sense of his timetable following Saturday's session.... See More ...

Orioles' Chris Lee: Close to resuming mound work
Lee (oblique) has resumed throwing off flat ground and is expected to pitch off a mound in the coming days, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The left-hander has been idle for a little over a month with a right oblique strain, which ended his bid for making the Opening Day roster. The Orioles optioned Lee to Triple-A Norfolk in March, so he's expected to hit the club's 7-day disabled list when its season begins April 6.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Chris Lee: Optioned to Triple-A
Lee (oblique) was sent to Triple-A Norfolk, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Lee, who suffered an oblique injury in Tuesday's game against the Rays, posted a 5.11 ERA in 116.1 innings for Norfolk last season, striking out 15.2 percent of batters while walking 9.9 percent.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Chris Lee: Out four weeks
Lee will be sidelined for four weeks while recovering from an oblique injury, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Lee will miss the rest of spring training after facing just one batter during his outing against the Rays on Tuesday. That was just his second appearance in the Grapefruit League and he seemed to be holding his right side while exiting the contest with a trainer. Once the regular season rolls around, Lee should be back at the Triple-A level in Norfolk, where he posted a 5.11 ERA and 1.71 WHIP over 27 appearances last year.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Chris Lee: MRI scheduled for Wednesday
Lee (olique) is scheduled to have an MRI on Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Lee faced just one batter during Tuesday's game against the Rays before exiting with an oblique injury. At this point, the team has yet to provide additional information regarding the severity of the ailment, but more should be known following Wednesday's examination. Prior to Tuesday's outing, Lee had appeared in one game (2.0 innings) this spring, giving up one run on three hits and a walk.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Chris Lee: Dealing with oblique injury
Lee was removed from Tuesday's spring game due to an injured right oblique, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The injury cropped up after Lee faced just one batter in Tuesday's bout. Although the nature of the injury is now apparent, the severity of the issue is still unknown. More information should come forth as he's examined further. Obliques can be notorious for keeping players out for a relatively long time, so this is worth keeping an eye on during spring training.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Chris Lee: Exits prematurely with undisclosed injury
Lee exited Tuesday's game against the Rays with an apparent injury, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.
The pitching prospect was able to retire the first batter he faced, but he was subsequently examined by a trainer and came out of the game. It's unclear what the issue is or how severe it is, but Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports that Lee seemed to be holding his right side as he walked off. More information should come forth once he's able to be fully examined by the team medical staff. Paul Fry replaced him on the mound.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Chris Lee: Disappoints in first Triple-A campaign
Lee posted a 5.11 ERA and 1.70 WHIP over 27 games (20 starts) during his first season at Triple-A Norfolk.
Entering 2017, the hype surrounding the 6-foot-3 southpaw was loud. Lee pitched well in spring training and almost snagged a temporary Opening Day rotation spot while Chris Tillman recovered from a shoulder injury. Most figured Lee would make his MLB debut at some point during the year, but as fate would have it, the pitcher wound up finishing the campaign with his worst marks since playing at the rookie levels. International League hitters, most of whom have big-league experience, tallied a .302 BAA over 116.1 innings. In fairness, Lee was victimized by an unlucky .352 BABIP and career-low 70.6 percent strand rate. He'll likely still be regarded as an MLB candidate when camp opens in February, but it's hard to believe he'll make the jump without having to show improvements at Triple-A first.... See More ...

Orioles' Chris Lee: Continuing to struggle at Triple-A
Lee (2-1) has struggled to a 5.46 ERA and 1.95 WHIP through his first seven starts of the season with Triple-A Norfolk.
The Orioles' No. 10 prospect is having a tough time in his first go at the International League. Opposing hitters have tallied a .341 BAA while knocking the left-hander out early in a number of starts. Lee, who was hunting for a big-league job during spring training, obviously has quite a bit of work to do before he's ready to tackle MLB competition.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Chris Lee: Inefficient early in Triple-A campaign
Lee made it through just 2.1 innings, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three in Wednesday's outing for Triple-A Norfolk.
The organization's No. 4 pitching prospect has looked far from MLB-ready through three minor-league starts this year. Aside from a horrendous 9.28 ERA, Lee has been madly inefficient while issuing eight walks over 10.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
