A's To Sign Pan?
The Oakland A's are rumored to have reached an agreement with IF Chih-Fang Pan, a fundamentally sound, undersized second baseman (without power - he did hit the only HR in the 2008 HS wood bat tourney, albeit it was an inside-the-park job). The current Fubon Bull (graduate of Mei-Ho HS) stands around 5'11" and weighs ~ 163 pounds. The 19 year old's (DOB: 11/12/90 - B:L/T:R) signing bonus is likely around the $150 K mark. No other ML teams appeared to have bid on the IF. Pan would join Yung-Chi Chen in the A's farm system.
