According to a report filed by Nikkan Sports, a number of media outlets in Taiwan have mentioned that the Chunichi Dragons are interested in 31-year-old RHP Chien-Fu Yang.

Yang is currently scheduled to visit Okinawa in order to talk to a number of clubs.  The media in Taiwan mentions that he also has a tryout with the Dragons on the 20th at Chatan Stadium.

Dragons' head of team development Takashi Ide told reporters that he knew about the reports, but had not received any information about Yang.  The Dragons already have 68 players on the 70-man roster.  They also have 6 foreign players under contract (3 position players and 3 pitchers).

Yang was a member of the 2006 WBC and 2008 Olympic teams.  He has spent his entire career playing for the Sinon Bulls of the CPBL.
