The Yankees are expected pay Kuo a signing-on bonus of between US$300,000 and US$500,000, but Octagon refused to confirm the figures, saying only that a signing ceremony will be held next week.

Kuo played for Nan Ying High School as third baseman, and was a member of the Chinese Taipei team in the 2004 Asian AA Baseball Championship and again in the 2008 World Youth Baseball Championship hosted by the International Baseball Association (IBA).

His team came second in this year’s Asian AAA Baseball Championship.
