Cleveland Indians’ Yu-cheng Chang, a.k.a. Yu Chang, has been a brilliant defensive player so far this year. He has flashes of batting performance, but otherwise is batting .211 over 45 plate appearances prior to last night’s game against the Angels, where he blasted a 3 run home run.
He’s only the 4th Taiwanese players to do so. The first 3 Taiwanese players to hit a home run in the MLB are Hong-chih Kuo, Chin-lung Hu, and Red Sox’s Tzu-wei Lin.
