Remember when I wrote that post on Wada and I mentioned that we might be signing Chen, as well? Well, we did it.
The deal, as far as we know so far, is for three years, the third year being a vesting option. Right now, it’s pending a physical, so we’ll see how that goes – but it’s pretty likely that Chen’s going to pass.
For my old article on Wada in which I first discussed Chen, complete with some scouting video, go here. I’ll discuss the Chunichi Dragons pitcher in-depth once we know he’s passed his physical.
