Phillies Sign Lin

Discussion in the Around Asia forum
Phillies Sign Lin
Lin Yen-Feng is the latest signing by a MLB team. The Phillies haven't had too much success with their past scouting forays into Asia.

I heard Lin throws in the low 90s. Anyone else have more info on the kid? What was his signing bonus?

About

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.
