A look at the latest minor moves from around baseball…
- The Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters of Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball announced that they have acquired outfielder Wang Po-jung from the Lamigo Monkeys of the Chinese Professional Baseball League, per the Japan Times. The Fighters reached a three-year agreement worth around $3.54MM with Wang, who looked like a possibility to immigrate to the majors via the posting process after last season. Instead, the Taiwan native will remain in Asia, where he has toyed with opposing pitchers. The 25-year-old Wang logged a 1.110 OPS over 1,484 at-bats in his previous league. If the bat-flipping Wang’s brilliance transfers to Japan, it stands to reason he’ll draw major league interest in the future.
9/10. Good release point and bonus points for height. Lack of revolutions is the only thing holding the score down.
Mlbtr has become npb trade rumors.
Drop the trolls!!!
So u took my advice to do international news in the minor transactions page. Much respect. However when y’all start to do the separate international news page that I recommended, I want my cut of $$$$ for recommending to you. I’ll be fair… I’ll even consider a small part time gig as payment or a simple one time payout. No need to make it major news
Yeah, I am sure no one on Earth ever thought about international news before you mentioned it. But if it helps….
You sir, are a visionary on par with Alexander the Great and Leonardo da Vinci. It is an honor to be on the same planet as you.
Feel better now?
Remember kids: say not to meth, heroin, and similar drugs.
They also stole my idea of capitalizing of the first letter of each sentence. This site is ripping us off!
I came up with putting the dates in the headline. Still awaiting my company shares.
One less suitor for a middle of the order corner outfielder I know.
Which middle of the order corner OF do you know, and why is he looking for dates in Asian leagues?
wang was acquired by best name in world from #2 name
From monkey, to ham fighter
Can Machado or Harper sign already?!?!?
nope…they will wait it out and get much less than expected.
I have those same thoughts.
Over-playing their hand will cost them….
It’s entirely possible that the Owners are the ones “holding things up”……it’s a Game of Chicken. Whoever flinches first…..loses.
I wonder which side will get nervous first..???
I bet Boras was really bummed professionally when Mr Ilitch (RIP) died. He was always willing to offer a blockbuster deal.
and the Monkeys are positioning themselves for a historic signing. Just trying to keep this thread Asian-centric
The Ham Fighters just took themselves out of the mix of teams for Harper and Machado.
