    • The sad truth is they are probably just roster filler. But I hope they can proved me wrong.

      I’m more interested to know how much signing bonus will those 20+ round pick will receive. It is kind of funny the Wei Chuan Dragons finished the draft by drafting a catcher named Wei Chuan.

      A few interesting draftees are pitcher Liu Yu-Chen (Dragons’ 22nd round pick). He came out of MLB Development Centre.

      Lin An-Ko, LHP (Uni-Lions’ 1st round pick) who is half Taiwanese half Argentine, had a bit of arm fatigue or injury issues. If he is completely healthy, he is likely to head to the MLB system for at least 500k to 700k USD signing bonus. One of Taiwan’s top tier LHP before. But now enter the draft as OF.

      Dragons’ 3rd round pick Kuo Tien-Hsin who last year I tweeted about how 3 MLB teams were in contact with him (Giants, Royals and an unnamed one). I guess he wasn’t happy about the signing bonus.

      I will update this blog post later and talk more about some of the interesting draftees when I have a chance to do so. You are getting a sneak peek of it now.
