Tampa Bay Rays shortstop prospect Hak-Ju Lee  appears to have severely injured his left knee during the first game of a double header against the Baltimore Orioles Triple A affiliate Norfolk Tides. With the bases loaded in the top of the 4th inning a groundball was sent to second baseman Tim Beckham  who softly flipped the ball to Lee who was unable to avoid a collision with the Tides Travis Ishikawa .
The 22-year old Lee was off to a fantastic start on the season hitting .422 (19 for 45) on the young season. Baseball America ranks Lee as their #56 on their 2013 Top 100 prospects list and he is regarded as the Rays #3 ranked prospect.
