Yokohama Bay Stars taking a look at three Taiwanese pitchers

The Bay Stars are currently taking a look at three pitchers from Taiwan out of the National Taiwan College of Physical Education.

21-year old Hon-chen Rai (ライ・ホンチェン), 20-year old Yu-chen Lin (リン・ユウチン) and 18-year old Yun-ho Zheng (ゼン・ウンハウ) all lined up in the bullpen on Saturday. Of the three pitchers, Rai appears to have impressed the Bay Stars the most -- he's left-handed and apparently maxes out at 151km/h.

The Bay Stars will test the three players out over 4 days.  If they show enough promise, Yokohama will consider the three players for both the regular and Ikusei rosters.

NOTE: the spelling on the names are probably wrong so I've also included the katakana.
