Cubs Ink Another, Signing Ping-Chieh Chen.....


The Cubs continue to stay busy in Asia (& Taiwan) by inking their 5th player from the island (including HW Chen, CH Wen (has been released), HH Tsai (had his contract voided), & YL Wang). Ping-Chieh Chen is the second player on the 2009 junior NT to sign with a ML team (joining Yao-Lin Wang). He received a ~ $300 K signing bonus.

PC Chen Bio:
HS: Nan-Ying Vocational HS (famous alumni include: HC Kuo, CL Hu, CH Lin, YW Kuo, WC Huang, and KW Cheng)
DOB: 7/23/91
H: 5'11"
W: ~160 pounds
B:L
T:R
Position: 2B
(probably won't be able to stay at 2B, doesn't have good agility/lateral movement or range)
Best Tool: Speed - an above average runner - contrary to the reported 3.53 home to 1B time, Chen is closer to a 3.9 from the left side (slightly slower than CH Lin was at the same age). He has run the 60 yards in ~ 6.7 seconds. (Scouting scale for speed)
Needs to Work on: improving strength as he matures - has little to no power at this time

Prospect Watch: Signing on the Horizon.....

*Some more good news for Taiwanese baseball fans: Nan-Ying speedster Ping-Chieh Chen has recently passed a physical and will sign with a professional team soon. More at a later date.



*Another intriguing prospect, San-Hsin RHP Tzu-An Wang touched 90 mph in the Sadaharu Oh Cup. Although he lost both games that he started in, his stats were impressive:
1)1st game 5 IP, 3 R, 2 H, 7 K's

Cubs Sign Yao-Lin Wang.....


San-Hsin senior RHP Yao-Lin Wang becomes the first signing in '09 of an amateur player by a ML club. The Cubs inked Wang to a ~ $260 K signing bonus. The 18 year old (DOB: 2/5/91), who stands 5'11" and weighs 172 pounds has already passed his physical. He has been selected to this year's junior NT.

Wang is one of the hardest throwing HS pitchers on the island (clocked in the low 90's) and has represented the country in the past ('06 on the World Boys Baseball Tournament NT - that included teammate Wei-Da Su).

YLW's Album




OTHER HS PLAYER NOTES:
*Word is that INF Ping-Chieh Chen has turned down a $300 K offer from the Cubs. The reason? He reportedly received pressure from his future college coach Hua-Wei Lin (forcing him not to sign).

*RHP Ming-Chie Lin will be attending Chinese Culture University and currently has no interest in playing pro baseball overseas.

Good read on CJ:
"AC: Who do you come to the park excited to see play every day?JL: When he was here I would have said Chia-Jen Lo, as well.

AC: One of the signings we Astros fans were excited about this off-season was Chia-Jen Lo, what you can you tell us about him?JL: Lo is the first big signing out of Taiwan for the Astros and he looks like a good one. He has a fastball that dominated at this level at 93 MPH or so with some movement and very good command. At this level with a fastball that good and command like that, you can get away with relying on it. At the higher levels, he’s going to have to establish his secondary pitches. We had a player here last year with Boston named Richie Lentz who threw 94-96, but they forced him to throw a lot of sliders just to get a feel with the pitch since they knew his fastball wouldn’t be enough once he moved up.
