[5/11/2017] Hanshin Tigers may have been checking Po-Jung Wang

The media learned on May 10 that the Hanshin Tigers may have been checking on Lamigo outfielder Po-Jung Wang earlier this month. A team official told reporters they were in Taiwan to research business operations, but may have also been looking at various talent for future consideration since they were already in the area.

Wang was in Japan earlier this year with the CPBL team. He went 3-for-3 in an exhibition game against Samurai Japan and blasted a two-run home run off Takahiro Norimoto.
