Tsao Update...

*Former ML pitcher Chin-Hui Tsao has been spotted in the US.   He's been working out in the presence of a few ML clubs.  Currently banned from the CPBL for his role in fixing games (see this PDF file from the Taipei - Banchiao court statement regarding Tsao's involvement in the scandal - in Chinese), Tsao was earlier rumored to be seeking employment in Mexico.   That rumor was refuted by his reps.

*We've got 2 All-Star reps in the minor leagues this year: 1)C/DH Chun-Hsiu Chen is a MWL All-Star    2)RHP Sheng-An Kuo was selected to the SAL All-Star roster

This year's Futures All-Star game roster as usual, will be selected by Baseball America.  Make your voice heard and contact the publication to get Chun-Hsiu Chen on the international roster.

*There's some bad news regarding injured players:  Braves RHP Wei-Chen Huang had elbow surgery.
Taiwan PE College RHP Min-Tzu Chen has an ulnar collateral ligament tear.

*NPB:  Chih-Lung Huang may start on the 9th for the Giants.
