Some Signing News


Posted by Lionel on Jul 28, 2009.

The Cubs have been very active in signing talent from Tawain and South Korea this year. East Windup Chronicle is reporting the Cubs have signed 3 players from Tawain and 1 from South Korea.

The latest is Wang Tsu-an, a HS pitcher who stands 6-5 or 6-6. He is relatively raw, but reportedly throws in the low 90's. They had already signed Yao-Lin Wang, an 18 year old pitcher. He is only 5-11, but also has been clocked in the low 90's. Joining them from Taiwan is Chen Pin-Chie, a 2-sack. All three have reportedly received bonuses around 300K. From South Korea, the Cubs signed Don-Yeop Kim, a 6-1 HS outfielder, to a reported bonus over half a million dollars.

Back stateside, the Cubs signed their 3rd round pick, Austin Kirk. Kirk is a left-handed pitcher out of high school who was ranked as the 61st best high schooler by Rivalshigh.com.
