Making It Official.....Meng-Hsiu Tsai & the Braves....


MH Tsai

Meng-Hsiu Tsai's signing with the Braves was made public today with a press conference in Taiwan. He reportedly received a $100K signing bonus and supposedly drew interest from the Red Sox, Twins, and Mariners. He has a pop time of 1.98 - which would grade out as an average tool on the ML level. Tsai's idols are Yankees C Jorge Posada and La New Bears OF/DH CFC. He is scheduled to go to Australia in July and then the Dominican Republic in September. 2009 will be his ETA in the US.

Kuo continued his good performances lately with 2 shutout innings today in relief of Chan Ho Park. He walked 1 and struck out 3 while lowering his ERA to 1.80. Dodgers are down 3-1 in extra innings right now.
