Yes, he provides some good defense. However, his bat leaves alot to be desired. I have compared his bat to the old guy from Atlanta and Tino Martinez. We simply need more production out of that position.

Update [2005-6-29 15:40:36 by David M. Bloom]:Rotoworld agrees: Lee has usually hit fourth or fifth despite an OPS that's lingered right around 700 since his return from the disabled list. If not for the possibility of an Aubrey Huff trade, the Rays should be thinking about releasing Lee, putting Huff at first base and turning over center field to Joey Gathright
