Tidbits and Notes.......

NPB Draft:
Well, I missed the 2007 NPB HS draft (great site on baseball in Japan) which happened about a week ago. Heng-Hsiao Kuo's name was conspicuously absent from that list - perhaps lending credence to the rumor that Kuo was hurt this past year (experiencing a loss in velocity). If Kuo is hurt, you can chalk up yet another top pitching Taiwanese HS/junior high prospect that has fallen victim to the injury bug while in Japan. In recent years, only top hitting Taiwanese HS prospects (WC Lin, CS Yang, PY Lee) have succeeded in making it to the NPB or were drafted by the NPB. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that Yi-Hao Lin has better luck with his health in Japan.

MLB's Newest Signees:

Bros Sports - the sports agency representing Tzu-Kai Chiu, is apparently also representing Che-Hsuan Lin and two of the most recent MLB signees Yen-Wen Kuo and Chun-Hsiu Chen. It looks like both kids are in fall instructional league right now. Check the highlighted links for some more great pics.
