“Despite Chinatrust Brothers was willing to match the salary, after given some thought, I decided to sign with the Phillies.  I’m still young and hungry to learn more, and I hope I can achieve that with my new role with the Phillies”

“I’ll still watching Taiwanese players, my goal is to bring a few more Taiwanese talents to the Phillies organisation in the near future”  Said the new Phillies scout Wang Jin-Yong.

Wang Jin-Yong was not first on the headhunt list

According to an article on ETtoday, the Philadelphia Phillies was originally trying to recruit Lamigo Monkeys scouting director but was unsuccessful.


  1. The Minnesota Twins have reportedly signed 19 year old Taiwanese pitcher Kai-Wei Teng for a $500,000 signing bonus.

    The Milwaukee Brewers signed possible CPBL candidate Radhames Liz to a minor league contract, but reports are that the Chunichi Dragons will not be bringing back Raul Valdez. Valdez is 40 years old, but he is a horse. While pitching in NPB the last three seasons, Valdes also continued to pitch every winter in the Dominican Winter League. He has pitched extremely well there this winter. He’d be a good risk for a CPBL team 2018 in spite of his age.
