Team Chinese Taipei (Taiwan): Infielder Tsung-Che Cheng

One of our most talented infield prospects Tsung-Che Cheng will be representing Chinese Taipei in this year's World Baseball Classic. Cheng was signed as an international free agent in 2019 out of Taiwan. Last season in Low-A Bradenton, Cheng had a solid season overall, hitting .270/.376/.418, hit 6 home runs, drove in 52, and had a 129 wRC+. Cheng got on-base well, walking 13.8% of the time at the plate, hit 25 doubles, and was an insane baserunning threat, stealing 33 bases! Keep an eye on this kid during the tournament and for the foreseeable future! He's bound to succeed with Team Chinese Taipei!
