As far as moves that truly get me excited the Dodgers have made two and walked laps around a couple more. One of the two that makes me excited is the addition of 20-year old Taiwanese right-hander Lin Hui-Sheng.
Sheng’s career is still young but according to reports he has dealt with some injuries in the early part of his fresh career. Despite that, Sheng has been scouted throwing 95 and scouts have said the righty has some solid potential.
The 20-year old throws a four-pitch mix consisting of a fastball, curveball, slider and the rare but incredible forkball.
Stats are hard to come by and I couldn’t get to them so Lin Hui-Sheng remains a bit of a mystery to me but the prospect of a reliever throwing 95 mph with a change of pace forkball has me very excited.
