Paul Hagen dishes the Monday morning scoop on a pair of enticing new recruits: 21-year-old Taiwanese outfielder Chia-Jung Lee and towering Dominican righthander Miguel Nunez.
Nunez, who stands 6-6, reportedly agreed to a $220,000 signing bonus before Christmas, while Taiwanese sources claim that Lee would receive $100,000. In other stories we’re tracking this morning, the Phillies may be close to completing their winter shopping. With Danys Baez soon to be in the fold, pending this week’s physical, most insiders expect the Phils to dole out only a minor league contract or two, possibly to round out the bullpen. Bear in mind the Phils still have a minor-league offer on the table to Scott Eyre. (Taiwanese flag pictured right)
