CPBL's Lin En-yu
There's a great up and coming 25 year old right hander in Lin En-yu, who's on the Makoto Cobras of the Chinese Professional Baseball League. He's 10-4 with a 1.65 ERA in 18 games. In 125 2/3 innings, he has struck out 112 batters and only walked 18.

Yes, he's one of the best pitchers in Taiwan right now. I've seen a lot of his games on TV. He's got good control and pitches up to 151 km.

Pitchers like Chang Chi-chia and Hsu Ming-chieh were signed right out of Taiwan leagues by Japanese teams. However that trend has stopped recently. Is it because there's not much talent in the CPBL? Are all the talented ones like Chen Wei-yin and Chiang Chien-ming getting signed even before they make it to the pros? There must be somebody the Japanese teams have overlooked that's in the CPBL.

He was going to consider going to Japan, but Macoto's coach asked him to stay in Taiwan.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
