Prospect Update: Wei-Chung Wang

Kaohsiung county LHP Wei-Chung Wang is attracting interest from MLB teams.  The 6'1", 170 pound youngster has a smooth delivery with a clean arm action.   Although his arm speed is just average, he is very projectable. Earlier this year, his fastball was in the low 80's but he has hit 88 mph quite a few times in the current Yu-Shan Cup; he has also flashed an above average changeup that he throws for a strike. Rumor has it that he is represented by Jerry Sung, and his asking price is $300,000. Octagon may be pursuing him too.
The 18 year old (4/25/92) is the younger brother of Cubs signee Yao-Lin Wang.
