Per the news out of Taiwan, 18 year old shortstop Yen-Wen Kuo signed with the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds now have two Taiwanese players in Kuo & LHP Tzu-Kai Chiu. Kuo was profiled in a previous post. From the 2006 junior NT, Kuo is the fourth player signed by a ML organization, joining CH Chen, WW Lin, and CH Lin.*Updated
YW Kuo received a ~ $120,000 signing bonus. *Added 9/27/07*
The kid has game! Watching that video I was fairly impressed. Especially that 3rd defensive play where he faked to 1st and then went to 3rd to catch the kid off base, excellent awareness. Plus he seemed to have good size, speed, strength, stroke.
