SOX PROSPECT WINS FUTURES GAME MVP
19 year old outfielder Che-Hsuan Lin has been part of the Red Sox organization for little over a year, but he's already hitting homeruns out of Yankee Stadium. The Taiwanese prospect belted a 2 run homer that helped give the World team a 3-0 win in the All-Star Future's Game yesterday. Lin finished his day 2 for 2 and was named MVP of the game. He was booed by the Yankee Stadium crowd when he was at the plate.
Lin was the only representative of the Red Sox (and Taiwan) on either team. He was signed as an international free agent last June and is currently playing in A Greenville.
