ESPN's Keith Law scouted the Zach Lee-Zach Wheeler pitching matchup in the Arizona instructional league on Tuesday and had this to say about Dodgers pitching prospect Zach Lee:

As befits a former star quarterback, Lee is a tremendous athlete and has great body control. His arm action is simple and clean and he repeats it well, and that should lead to plus command down the line. He's already strong at 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, with a solid lower half, but I have a feeling he's going to get bigger and stronger, in part because the kid looks like he's still growing into his feet.

Here is what he had to say about Giants pitching prospect Zach Wheeler:

Honestly, though, Wheeler actually came out ahead in the battle of Zacharies on Tuesday, going an inning further than Lee with better velocity and command, even though he, like Lee, looked a little tired. He was more aggressive than Lee and seemed better suited to putting guys away with two strikes on Tuesday. I like both pitchers and think they both project as No. 1 starters down the line, with the potential for some rematches between these guys when they're both in the NL West in 2013 or 2014.
