icon_19357223Earlier today, Hak-Ju Lee, one of the Rays’ top prospects and shortstop of the future, injured his knee trying to turn a double play. Lee was involved in a collision, and according to Joe Smith of TampaBay.com, he tore ligaments in his knee and is likely out for the season.

Lee was having a great season at the plate early on. In his first 15 games, he was on base 30 times with 19 hits and 11 walks. He was hitting .422 with a .536 OBP.

While Lee was not likely to see any significant time in the big leagues this season, this injury puts his status for 2014 in jeopardy. So Lee’s much-anticipated debut with the big club might not come for quite a while.

    Sad news for a kid who seemed to be doing all the right things and busting his butt to improve. Here's hoping he returns to 100% and can achieve his goals.
