Po-Hsuan Keng was promoted from A-ball (Lansing Lugnuts) to A+ball (Dunedin Blue Jays). His teammate Cheng will remain at Lansing.
Compare this year's stats (through July 5th):
Keng 0W - 3L 2.93 ERA 21 Games 46 IP 38 K's/11 Walks
Cheng 6W- 4L 3.55 ERA 17 Games 83.2 IP 88K's/38 Walks
Obviously the main difference between the two is Cheng's command, which is a little bit worse than last year. Cheng's 2005 K/BB ratio was 2.85, while his current K/BB ratio is 2.32.
