BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Chun-Hsiu Chen couldíve shown more improvement in his repeat of Double-A to get on the fast track toward being Santanaís backup, but there are some tools here and Marson hasnít exactly set an unreachable bar.
2012 With average-at-best defense, Chun-Hsiu Chen's biggest challenge will be proving he can remain behind the plate now that his bat has carried him this far. If he sticks, he could eventually be a great replacement for Lou Marson.
2011 Taiwanese import Chun-Hsiu Chen showed impressive hitting skills during his full-season debut, but scouts question his ability to stay behind the plate.
