Wei-Ying Chen: Treat me like a foreign player

Wei-Ying Chen returned to Japan with the Dragons on Sunday from their victory trip to Hawaii.  Before taking a flight back to Taiwan, he told reporters that he wanted the Dragons to treat him as a foreign player.  But because the team is currently treating him as a Japanese player, he can't head to the Majors unless he either earns his international FA option (2016) or gets posted by the team.

For the time being, Chen is expected to return to the club in 2011.
