Dodgers Sign Taiwanese Pitcher; Spelling Barbs to Follow

Steve Henson of the LA Times just posted that the Dodgers just picked up Chin-Hui Tsao, once the Colorado Rockies' top pitching prospect (though about three to four years ago).

Tsao, 25, is trying to come back after multiple surgeries and has not pitched in a game since May 2005. He did clock 94 mph pitching in front of scouts this winter, when the Rockies did not offer him a contract.

Picking him up cost the Dodgers a scant $420K, and potentially less if he doesn't make the roster by opening day.

SoSG is looking forward to learning the myriad methods of spelling "Tsao" from other blog comments.
