Wei-Chung Wang reached the major leagues in 2014. He is the brother of Yao-Lin Wang.
Wang played for Taiwan in the 2004 Little League World Series. In the 2010 World Junior Championship, he struggled against Team USA, giving up 6 hits in 2 1/3 IP and taking the loss. He was excellent in the Gold Medal game, though, giving Taiwan its second World Junior Championship title. Replacing Hung-Yi Chen, he tossed five shutout innings (2 H) to wrap it up. He got the win. The Pittsburgh Pirates, behind scout Fu-Chun Chiang, signed him in 2011, but voided the contract after Tommy John surgery, resigning him for half the price; this rendered him eligible for the Rule V Draft on an annual basis, a move that would come back to hurt the Pirates two years later. He pitched for Taiwan in the 2011 World Port Tournament, going 1-1 with a 4.35 ERA. Both decisions came against the host Dutch national team.
The Taitung native missed 2012 while rehabbing from surgery. He made his debut as a pro with the GCL Pirates in 2013, going 1-3 with a 3.23 ERA. He walked only four in 47 1/3 IP while striking out 42. The Milwaukee Brewers took him with the 7th pick of the 2013 Rule V Draft, following Patrick Schuster, Adrian Nieto, Kevin Munson, Tommy Kahnle, Brian Moran and Seth Rosin. In addition to having good control and being left-handed, Wang had been timed as fast as 95 mph.
