Hu - POY.........

Chin-Lung Hu was named the Dodgers Minor League Player of the Year. Congrats to Hu! It looks like he will be joining YC Chen and CL Lo in the Arizona Fall League.


Well, I'm watching Fox-Prime and it looks like CL Hu will be getting his first career MLB start against Arizona today. Box Score*UPDATED*

En-Yu Lin earned a ND for the Rakuten Eagles, however he pitched well enough to win. Lin (who was clocked at 91 mph) threw 6 innings, allowing 3 runs on only 3 hits to go along with 8 K's and 3 walks allowed. The Eagles beat the Lions 5-4. Box

According to JapanBaseballDaily, Fighters SS/3B CS Yang is out for the rest of the season after having surgery to repair a stress fracture in his ankle.

Whales 2 - Cobras 1 (GAME 1): Lefty Fu-Te Ni won his 6th game of the season in dominant fashion. Ni threw 6 shutout innings, allowing only 3 hits to go along with 9 K's and 3 walks. Whales LF Tai-Yong Kuo (2-4 with a RBI) hit his 4th HR of the season in support of Ni. For the Cobras, CH Hsieh was 0-4, while Chuan-Chia Wang drove in the only run for the Cobras with his 7th HR of the year.

Cobras 18 - Whales 2 (GAME 2): Game MVP Travis Minix won his 5th game of the season, after allowing 2 runs on 5 hits over 6 IP. TM received plenty of run support as his offense rapped out 21 hits - with SS Ming-Jen Kuo going 2-6 with a double & 4 RBI's/CF CH Hsieh was 3-4 with a double and 2 RBI's/DH Hung-Yuan Lin was 3-4 with 3 RBI's/2B Shih-Yang Deng was 3-5 with HR #8 and 3 RBI's/LF Su-Chi Zhou was 3-4 with HR #7 and 2 RBI's.

Bears 4 - Bulls 1: Ying-Feng Tsai won his 2nd game of the year and game MVP honors. Tsai allowed 1 run on 3 hits over 5.1 innings. Earning the loss for the Bulls was Chien-Fu Yang as he fell to 7-11 on the season. CFC blasted his 25th HR of the season as he was 2-4 with 2 RBI's. Kit Pellow (hit his 1st HR of the year) and Raul Gonzalez also chipped in a RBI each for the Bears. CH Chien-Ming Chang was the lone bright spot for the Bulls - he hit his 2nd HR of the year and was 3-4 with a RBI. Tarzan was 0-4.

good start for Lin En Yu. He's had a pretty disappointing season in Japan. Great job for Hu for getting the Dodgers minor league of the year. Glad he's getting a a start today... but, why will he be joining Chen Yung Chi in the Arizona Fall League?

when will Yang be healed from his injury? is he gonna be back in time for the baseball world cup and the olympic qualifiers?

I'm pretty sure that the Dodgers brass wanted to get Hu some more quality AB's after the season is over - some of the top young talent in the game will be in the AFL.

So assuming YC Chen & CL Hu (& CL Lo - although he was not listed on the preliminary NT roster) all play in the AFL for the entire season, that would effectively remove them from playing in the World Cup.

As for Yang's est. return...nothing official yet, but I'd probably bet against him recovering in time for the World Cup (Nov.6th - 18th)- the kid has his whole career in front of him to think about.
