Q&A with Chih-Hsien Chiang (6.30.11)

Traded to the Seattle in a three way deal in which Boston sent Stephen Fife, Tim Federowicz, and Juan Rodriguez to the LA Dodgers, LA sent Trayvon Robinson to Seattle, and Seattle sent Erik Bedard and Josh Fields to Boston (July 2011)

Scouting Report
: Chiang is a good offensive player with a really nice left-handed swing. Potential to hit for both average and power - makes great contact. Pure hitter, however he really needs to work on his patience at the plate. Defense at second base was below-average, so Chiang was converted to the outfield in the 2008-09 off-season. On the positive side, he has average-to-above-average range and a strong arm. Still, he's had some fundamental lapses in the field, commits a lot of errors, and his hands aren't all that great. He has been well ahead of the track age-wise during his rise through the Sox system.
