Via MLBTR, the Yanks have signed 18-year-old Taiwanese infielder Fu-Lin Kuo to a $150,000 bonus. He’s just the second Taiwanese player ever signed by the Yanks, the first being Chien-Ming Wang, of course. Taiwan Baseball says Kuo has the potential to hit for average and gap power with average range at second base, his likely destination. I’m guessing he’ll debut in Extended Spring Training next year, followed by a stint with the Rookie level GCL Yanks.
