BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Taiwenese infielder Yung-Chi Chen has all of the skills to make a nice utility player, except the ability to stay healthy, as he's amassed just 126 games over the last three years.
2008 Chen lost last season to a dislocated shoulder; fortunately for him, 2007 wasn't kind to any of the Mariners' high-level infield prospects, so his place in line hasn't been usurped. A rakish stint in the Arizona Fall League reaffirmed what we already knew-he's a utility type who'll go as far as that batting average and a hint of gap power can take him.
2007 Chen started the year with a bang, hitting a grand slam in Taiwan`s WBC face-off against mainland China. He continued to rake in the California and Texas Leagues on his way to what was easily his best season as a pro. Chen`s value is in his batting average and his versatility, but with a crowded field ahead of him for the utility slot--including Bloomquist, Mike Morse, and Michael Garciaparra--he can`t afford to slack off at Tacoma in 2007.
2005 Yung played for the Taiwanese Olympic team this year, where he wasn't too impressive. In Everett he looked good, though at 21 you'd like to see him start sprinting up the system. He needs to get playing time, preferably at short, where the traffic jam is.
