Taiwanese Pitchers

Postby carnegie44115 » Tue Dec 16, 2008 1:17 pm

Saw this article off of mlbtraderumors.com, another Taiwanese pitcher thinking about coming over the majors. He looks more advanced than the guys we've signed and is looking for a major league contract, but he is still thinking over a minor league deal from Seattle. Perhaps with some of the Taiwanese guys we've signed recently, we could be of some interest to him.

Tony is there any more news on the Taiwanese pitcher we signed at the tail end of last season?

Interesting find. Always could use a bit more depth in the system, especially if he's a righty (is he?).

No new news. Finished up Instructs and is working on acclimating himself to the US. Will come to spring training late Feb and is pegged for a bullpen spot in Kinston although he could start if they want to stretch him out first and get him to work on his secondary pitches.

The guy in the article I found is a lefty.

hmm, well not as nice then as if he was a righty, but still if he can bring it, worth a look.
