MLB Draft Deadline: Dodgers Sign Zach Lee

The Dodgers have pulled off what was previously thought to be impossible. Reports Jim Callis:

#Dodgers have signed Zack [sic] Lee. Don't know details yet. #mlbdraft <JC>

This is a very big sign for a team whose draft was raked over the coals by critics, both during and after. What did it cost to get Lee to drop football?

#Dodgers deal with Zach Lee is worth $5.25 million. Yes, he gives up football.

A very hefty sum from a team few thought would pony it up.
