Pirates Sign Taiwanese Pitcher Po-Yu Chen

The Pittsburgh Pirates signed 19-year-old Taiwanese pitcher Po-Yu Chen on Wednesday afternoon as an international free agent. Chen is listed at 6’2″, 187 pounds. His scouting report says that he’s an advanced HS arm, with a fastball in the 88-94 MPH range, which he mixes with a curve, slider and a changeup. He’s very athletic, and comes from an athletic family, with his dad playing pro ball in Taiwan and his mom was a basketball player. Chen has switched from a two-way player to the mound recently and has seen better results. Per a source, his bonus is north of $1,000,000.
