RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Chun Hsiu Chen.
Chen's bat is coming around in a big way after a few quiet seasons in the minors, and he hit .262 with 24 doubles and 16 homers as a 22-year old at Double-A Akron. He needs to command the strike zone better (43:122 BB:K in 467 plate appearances) but that's not entirely unexpected as he's still pretty raw after signing as a free agent from Taiwan back in 2007. He's still a work in progress behind the plate defensively and would be best served with another year at Double-A to work out the kinks in his game. The Indians don't have many catching prospects in their system, but Carlos Santana's presence should afford Chen extra time. The Indians will likely give Chen every chance to succeed as a catcher, and he's worth keeping an eye on again this season.
