Yomiuri Giants: June 9, 2010

...Chih-Lung Huang will likely get tonight's start against the Orix Buffaloes.  Seems he's being called the second coming of Chien-Ming Wang (they're both from Taiwan).  Huang tops out at 152km/h and throws a slider, fork, and shuto.

Huang's Ni-gun numbers:

G W L Sv CG ShO WPCT BF IP H HR BB IBB HB SO WP BK R ER ERA
7 2 2 0 0 0 .500 142 35 27 1 11 0 3 20 1 0 11 6 1.54

Depending on how Huang does, he could become a part of the starting rotation once Inter-league series ends (the Giants will be going back to a 6-man rotation).

...Seems there's a chance Seth Greisinger could be out until late June, early July.  And while no specifics were mentioned for Tetsuya Matsumoto, he too will likely require some more time.
