Twins Sign RHP Hung-Yi Chen

The Twins inked their second signee from Taiwan (OF Wang-Wei Lin was the first):  Shi-Yuan HS RHP Hung-Yi Chen. The 2010 junior NT member is a HS teammate of recent Indians signee Chia-Ching Lin. He was the 2010 Yu-Shan Cup MVP.

Chen stands ~ 5'10" and weighs ~ 190 lbs. The 17 year old (9/25/92) righty tops out at 90 mph and throws a fastball/sinker/slider/forkball mix. He has a good delivery and is physically mature for his age.

His signing bonus is rumored to be in the ~$100 K range (comprehensive).
