McCarty and Mengden signed a contract with Zhongxin, according to CPBL Stats, which reports the news of Taiwanese baseball.

McCarty played for SSG Landers in the 2023 season and Mengden for the KIA Tigers in the 2021 season.

McCarty, who started his professional career after being drafted by the Cleveland Indians (currently the Cleveland Guardians) in the 2017 MLB Rookie Draft, achieved his dream of becoming a big leaguer in 2022. He pitched in 13 games and recorded four wins, three losses and an ERA of 4.54.

McCarty, who wore an SSG jersey ahead of the 2023 season, went 9-5 with a 3.39 ERA. Despite not performing badly, SSG decided not to re-sign McCarty, who suffered from a lingering injury in the second half of the season.

McCarty, looking for a new team, built a bird nest in Taiwan instead of returning to the United States.

Mengden was selected by the Houston Astros in the 2014 MLB Rookie Draft and entered the professional league, playing in the big leagues from 2016 to 2020.

Mengden, who entered the KBO league by signing with KIA ahead of the 2021 season, recorded 8 wins, 3 losses and 3.60 ERA in 21 games.

Mengden, who couldn’t play full time due to an elbow injury, couldn’t renew his contract with KIA and returned to the U.S. in March 2022 with a minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals.

Mengden took the opportunity to promote to the big leagues with Kansas City in 2022 and pitched in five games.

He continued his career with the Kansas City Royals last year, but after being released in June, he signed with the Washington Nationals. Having failed to make it to the big leagues in the 2023 season, Mengden pitched in 28 games (six starts) with Triple-A and posted a 2-3-2 record with a 7.25 ERA.

Mengden, who did not have a chance to be promoted to the big league all last season, also turned to Taiwan.
