Kuo can do no wrong....

Kuo pitched a 1-2-3 5th inning against the Washington Nationals today. After getting the leadoff hitter to ground out, Kuo picked up 2 more K's against Damian Jackson and Nick Johnson. If Kuo pitches like this in the regular season, I can't see why he wouldn't be a top candidate for NL ROY.

In Japan, W.C. Lin made the Tigers ball club. Although he won't be a regular in the starting lineup, he at least joins Y.C. Lin of the Eagles as a bonafide NPB player. If C.C. Chang can regain some of his lost velocity, he would be a valuable contributor for his Lions team.

The Yang brothers and W.Y. Chen will all begin the season on their respective NPB farm teams.

Been hearing some rumblings lately about the Dodgers moving Kuo back into a starter role eventually. Does anyone know how much truth is in that?

I don't know the answer, but I believe the Dodgers will look to see how Kuo's arm/elbow holds up in long relief, before they will entertain any thoughts of starting him.

Manager Grady Little has said that he hasn't ruled out the possibility of Kuo starting someday.
