Mid-sized, athletic frame. Has some projection left in his upper
half and should add strength as he matures.
Throws from a compact, high-three-quarters arm slot, starting on
the first base side of the rubber. Pronounced leg kick with
large stride towards home plate. Falls off to the first base
side post-delivery, sometimes significantly. Effortful but not
violent arm mechanics.
88-92 mph, topping out at 93 mph, at Fall Instructs 2020, down
significantly from where he reportedly sat before signing. Also
showed a two-seam fastball with late downward movement.
Reportedly sat 93-96 mph and topped out at 97-98 mph with his
four-seam prior to signing. Potential average offering.
Slider: 82-85 mph. Shorter breaking ball with
more tilt. Pitch is inconsistent; does not always snap it off.
Curveball: 80-82 mph. Vertical, with longer
Changeup: 80-83 mph. Will flash
Split-Finger Fastball: 82-84
mph. Will flash late downward action.
Notes: Two-way player in high school who both pitched
and was a switch-hitting shortstop. Showed great range and
athleticism at short. Was reportedly overused on the mound.
Pitched for Taiwan in the 2017 U18 World Cup. Went to Culture
University out of high school rather than entering the CBPL
draft. Took a break from pitching for two seasons to rest his
arm. Returned to pitching in 2019, dialing his fastball up to 98
mph. Was named MVP of the 2019 Asian Baseball Championship,
where he was a teammate of Tzu-Wei Lin. Did not pitch much in
2020 spring training because team had him quarantine after
arriving in Fort Myers during the early stages of the COVID-19
pandemic, and camp was ended before he could really take the
mound. Participated in 2020 Fall Instructional League,
essentially his stateside debut. Was promoted from the FCL to
Low-A Salem after a single start, largely based on a strong
Extended Spring Training showing.
Athletic right-hander with a wide-ranging pitch mix, but none
projecting as more than average based on initial looks at 2020
Fall Instructional League. Showed feel for pitching, but stuff
was down considerably from prior reports, which could have been
due to the long layoff from the cancellation of the 2020 minor
league season. Has potential based on the reports from prior to
his signing, but also comes with substantial risk.
This page will be updated with a scouting
report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
