    Did Chung-Shou Yang get any playing time this season on the big club for the Fighters? Do you know if he primarily played shortstop or third in the Eastern League? It’s impressive that he led in both on-base percentage and in slugging.

  2. Gwynar

    Yang actually had playing time with the parent club in each of the last two seasons.

    2007 55 Games, 109 AB, 12 R, 26 H, 8 2B, 2 3B, 0 HR, 38 RBI, .239 BA
    2008 44 Games, 111 AB, 7 R, 16 H, 0 2B, 1 3B, 2 HR, 4 RBI, .144 BA

    As for what position he played in the EL… Here’s what I could find of him for 2008:

    3B 13 G, 6 PO, 8 A, 1 E, 0 DP, .933
    SS 59 G, 93 PO, 141 A, 13 A, 30 DP, .947

    Just out of curiosity, where do you know Yang from?

  3. knucklehead7

    From this blog.

    After seeing how well he had done from your post, I wanted to know more. I saw that he had struggled in ’07 from his page at JapaneseBaseball.com, but they don’t list ’08 statistics yet, so I figured that I would ask you.There is also a wiki page on him at Baseball Reference.

    Thanks for the information.

  4. Gwynar

    heh… Well damn, that makes my day.

    I figured you heard about him from somewhere else because you mentioned him as if you knew about him for a while. Then again, how I could actually pick up on such a nuance in a text post, I have no idea.
