Cheng-Han Tsai News..

*Nan-Ying HS P Cheng-Han Tsai has signed an agent contract with Octagon.  Tsai is a 6'2", 190 lb righty.   He has a fastball that sits 84-86 (flashed an 88 mph fb in the national HS tourney in December of '09), throws a slow curveball and mixes in a changeup.   He has good size and command but has slow arm action.   A couple of teams seemed to have some interest in him (in the $50 to $100 K range).   The kid will represent the country in Canada later this summer on the junior NT.

*The senior NT preliminary roster has been trimmed down to 30. Check this previous post for the 411. Players demarcated in blue are on the 30 man NT roster.

*A couple of amateur tourney updates:

Yen-Feng Lin Signs with the Marines....CMW and Yankees Bid Adieu.......

One time Philadelphia Phillies farmhand, RHP Yen-Feng Lin has signed with the Chiba Lotte Marines in the NPB, becoming the first Taiwanese player in history to sign with both an NPB and MLB club. Lin will receive a 10 million yen signing bonus (~ $112 K USD) with an annual salary of 2.4 million yen (~ $27 K USD). His contract includes incentive bonuses as well. He will fly to join the team in early January.

It's time for CMW to say bye bye to the NYY.

A WTF story regarding the Dodgers/Jeff Fuller/Justin Chou and Taiwan

4 more teams have been eliminated from the tourney. Advancing on to the next round (3) are:
8)Hualien PE

Teams 5-12 will play on the 15th to help determine the final 8 teams.
Despite winning only one game in round 2, Nan-Ying managed to survive and advance with a 3-0 victory on Friday. Nan-Ying starter Cheng-Han Tsai was clutch as he threw a CG shutout (9 IP, 0 R, 5 H, 4 K's, 3 BB's) against Cheng-Kung HS. Tsai is a senior and is said to have a fb that tops out in the 89-90 mph range.
Another player who raised some eyebrows in the tourney was Gao-Nong LHP Cheng-Ju Hsieh. The 16 year old started and picked up a W (6 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 8 K's, 0 BB's) as he helped lead Gao-Nong to a 2-0 win over Tung-Shih Friday.
