Mariners, Braves, Marlins Scouting 15 year old pitcher...

Shu-Han Cheng, a 15 year old playing for a Chinese Taipei junior national team, was clocked in the low 90's while competing recently in the Enzo Civelli Tournament held in Italy. Cheng was born 12/7/89, stands 5'10'' tall and weighs 180 pounds. Keep an eye out on this kid in the next couple of years, when he becomes eligible to sign with a pro team. Chinese Taipei won the tournament with a perfect record. The other stand out player for CT was Kai-Wen Cheng. The 17 year old was the top player in the tourney playing 2 ways: hitting .520, with 2 HR's & 14 RBI's, while pitching a shutout and winning 2 complete games with an eye popping 31 K's in 16 innings.

Low 90's as a 15-year-old? Quite impressive. Usually it's a good sign just to see a pitcher hit the 90s by the time they're seventeen.

Sup dude. Good hearing from you! Registering 90+ mph is pretty darned good for someone so young. My only fear is that without proper training/monitoring ,this kid will blow out his arm further on down the line. Props to the Mariners for getting on the ball and scouting this kid!
