The Three Amigos......
The 2008 Olympic National Team had three amateur players on the squad: Chia-Jen Lo, Chen-Chang Lee, and Kai-Wen Cheng. Two of the three pitchers are now signed with MLB teams. The remaining unsigned player is Kai-Wen Cheng. The 20 year old has had a storied past representing his country on multiple age-leveled national teams.
Cheng, who has received interest from some ML teams, will most likely now have a showcase in Japan as he auditions for NPB teams. His high signing bonus demand ($300 K) is the only thing inhibiting him from playing in the US.
