Wei-Ying Chen to shoot for the Majors next year?

Wei-Ying Chen is still has a few things he wants to accomplish in the NPB, but past that, his ultimate goal is to head for the Majors.

"I still have strong feelings of playing in Japan, but I would like to go to the Majors at some point," said Chen.  "I want to get a little more experience in Japan before giving it a shot."

Sponichi figures Chen could try and get posted during the off-season after the 2010 season (the Dragons will still have control over his negotiating rights after the 2010 season).

I overlooked an article over at Daily Sports Online that mentions Chen signed Alan Nero to represent him when he tries for the Majors.
