Bears Release Kevin Huang.....
*For the second time in his career, RHP Kevin Huang finds himself without a team. The La New Bears released the former Red Sox farmhand after he struggled this past season with injuries and his command. He will have until the 30th of this month to be picked up by another CPBL club.
*Astros signee Chia-Jen Lo threw in a college tournament yesterday. He pitched very well: topping out at 96 mph, while averaging 93-94 mph with good movement. The Red Sox, Royals, Reds, and Braves were there.
*As for all of the T-rex players (not involved in the gambling scandal) & lefty Ying-Chieh Lin (released by the Rakuten Eagles), they will be put into a "special draft" for the other CPBL clubs to draft these players. All of these players' contracts/salaries will then be renegotiated. The one positive to come out of this is that the domestic talent pool in the CPBL won't be as diluted and hopefully, the minor league teams will have a bit more depth to them.
*Ching-Lung Lo has been resigned by the Colorado Rockies.
