Taipei, July 26 (CNA) Tsao Chin-hui (曹錦輝), the first Taiwanese pitcher to play in the major
league in the United States, was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City after a poor performance in a relief call by the Los Angeles Dodgers in their game against the New York Mets in New York Saturday.
In a Twitter post after a 15-2 loss to the Mets, the Dodgers said Tsao and Josh Ravion would be optioned.
