The Mariners have announced today, that they have signed Japanese pitcher Kenta Suda to a minor league contract, with a Spring Training invite. Suda is an 18 year old undrafted free agent. He pitched in the NOMO Baseball Club in Japan in 2007. He also pitched in the IBAFAAA (Under 18) Championships in Taiwan in August '07, while he was on the Japanese U18 team. Looking to dig something up on this guy, anybody know anything on him?
Also, the Mariners signed 17 year old Yao Wen Chang to a minor league contract with an invite to Spring Training. Chang is from Taichung, Taiwan.
