Derek Gerald Lee (born July 28, 1966 in Chicago, Illinois) is a retired Major League Baseball outfielder who appeared in 15 games for the Minnesota Twins during the 1993 season. He batted left-handed and threw right-handed.[1]

Lee played for the University of South Florida and was drafted by four different teams from 1985–1987, but did not sign with any of them. He finally signed with the Chicago White Sox after being drafted in the 1988 amateur draft. He was claimed off waivers by the Twins in 1992, and was brought up to the major-league club for about one month. The following offseason, the Twins traded Lee to the Montreal Expos for minor-leaguer Joe Norris.
