More Wed. Updates...

*As mentioned by Stevo in the comments section, the Taichung city government will most likely sponsor the Sinon Bulls with a 10 million NT/year contribution (rather than form its own team).

*NY Yankees OF Bobby Abreu will be attending the upcoming wood bat HS tourney opening ceremony. It will be interesting to follow top 10 '09 HS prospect RHP Wen-Hao Cheng in the tourney. Cheng has stated that his goal is to hit 150 kph (93 mph). His coach has admitted that his velocity has dropped these past two years. Cheng is represented by former coach Chien-Chen Chen and Samuel Fu.

Chun-Hsiu Chen continues to rake at the Taiwan-South Korea University Invitational. Chen had 3 hits, 2 doubles, a RBI, and 2 runs scored. His teammate has also been carrying a hot bat as of late. Chih-Pei Huang also had three hits (he had 5 hits a few nights ago). TSU-Taoyuan ended their game in a 3 all tie. Chen was also lauded by his coach for showing good blocking technique at the plate.
RHP Ying-Shan Wang pitched well for TSU-Taichung, which won its game 2-0. Wang is preparing for his showcase next year (1/09) in the US.

*RHP Po-Yu Lin is still recovering from a shoulder injury. He still has aspirations of playing in the US and plans to go to a tryout (in the US) in '09.

*Good read on the recently completed Kuan-Huai Cup by Twins scout JB at the EWC. Hualien PE HS RHP Chun-Chen Chiang was clocked at 89 mph in the tourney.

*He may have been cleared by his team to play in the WBC, but RHP En-Yu Lin reportedly has a rotator cuff tear.

He has to be given the green light from the Dodgers. We'll probably have a better idea in the spring.
