Indians' Yu Chang: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.

Chang was in camp competing for a reserve infield spot but won't be winning the job. That would appear to leave Christian Arroyo with a safe grip on a bench role.

Indians' Yu Chang: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

Chang went 1-for-10 with a double while starting at third base in each of the Tribe's last three games, with Cleveland opposing left-handed pitching in each of those contests. He'll bow out of the lineup in favor of platoon mate Ryan Flaherty in the series finale, but both players should be headed for permanent bench roles during the upcoming week with top third baseman Jose Ramirez (hand) on track to return from the injured list ahead of Tuesday's series opener versus the White Sox.

Indians' Yu Chang: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

Chang was also held out of Sunday's matchup, so following a team off day, he'll receive a third straight day of rest. Mike Freeman gets the call at the hot corner and will hit fifth.

Indians' Yu Chang: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang is not in the lineup Sunday against the Twins.

Chang hasn't done much at the plate through his first 23 career games, hitting just .208/.311/.321. Ryan Flaherty will start at third base in his absence.

Indians' Yu Chang: Not in starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang is not starting Friday against the Twins.

Chang started each of the last four games, going 3-for-14 with a homer. Mike Freeman gets the call at the hot corner Friday.

Indians' Yu Chang: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang is not in the lineup Saturday against the Twins.

Chang is hitting just .235/.350/.294 in 12 games this season. He'll sit in favor of Mike Freeman at the hot corner.

Indians' Yu Chang: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang is not in Thursday's lineup against the White Sox.

He is the nominal primary third baseman with Jose Ramirez (hand) out for the rest of the regular season, but it would not be surprising if the Indians mixed and matched at the hot corner over the final month. Mike Freeman will start at third and hit sixth.

Indians' Yu Chang: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Change is not starting Tuesday against the White Sox.

Chang sits after starting six straight games. He went 3-for-20 at the plate over that stretch. Ryan Flaherty will start at the hot corner in his absence.

Indians' Yu Chang: Fifth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang will start at third base and bat ninth Sunday against the Rays.

Chang will man the hot corner for a fifth consecutive game and looks to hold the playing-time edge at the position over Mike Freeman. Though his first six games since rejoining the Tribe when Jose Ramirez (hand) was placed on the injured list, Chang has gone 5-for-17 with a triple, two walks and three runs.

Indians' Yu Chang: Impresses in first game sans J-Ram
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang went 2-for-3 with a triple, walk and two runs Sunday in the Indians' 9-8 loss to the Royals in 10 innings.

Called up from Triple-A Columbus earlier in the day, Chang immediately stepped into the lineup as a replacement for the injured Jose Ramirez (hand) and ensured the Cleveland offense didn't miss a beat. It's worth noting the Indians were facing a left-handed starting pitcher (Eric Skoglund) in the contest, so the righty-hitting Chang won't necessarily see the overwhelming share of action at the hot corner while Ramirez is sidelined for at least multiple weeks. Manager Terry Francona could opt for a platoon at the position, with the lefty-batting Mike Freeman instead seeing the bulk of the starts in such a scenario.

Indians' Yu Chang: Called up as Ramirez replacement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Indians recalled Chang from Triple-A Columbus on Sunday. He'll start at third base and bat seventh in the Indians' series finale with the Royals, according to Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star.

Chang will provide the Indians with some additional depth on the left side of the infield after star third baseman Jose Ramirez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a fractured hand. Utility man Mike Freeman should be the top candidate to see the bulk of the action at the hot corner while Ramirez is out, but Freeman's left-handedness could at least afford Chang the opportunity to see regular work versus southpaws. Chang, who has hit .253 with nine home runs and four steals in 283 plate appearances at Columbus this season, will enter the starting nine right away with Cleveland opposing lefty Eric Skoglund on Sunday.

Indians' Yu Chang: Bounced from roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Indians optioned Chang to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday.

Chang earned his first callup to the big leagues earlier in the weekend following Jose Ramirez's placement on the paternity list. After starting at third base Friday against the Orioles and going 0-for-3, Chang was back on the bench Saturday, ultimately coming on as a pinch hitter and striking out in his lone plate appearance. With Ramirez returning to the team ahead of the series finale, Chang will forfeit his spot on the active roster.

Indians' Yu Chang: Joining Indians for debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang was called up from Triple-A Columbus on Friday and will start at third base against the Orioles.

Chang makes his way to the majors for his debut while Jose Ramirez moves to the paternity list. Ramirez is likely to be gone for all three games of the series, so Chang could see a good chunk of playing time this weekend. The 23-year-old has struggled at Columbus this season with a .205/.259/.359 slash line in 21 games after missing time with a finger sprain.

Indians' Yu Chang: Struggling since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang (finger) has gone 1-for-12 with one RBI and two strikeouts in four games with Triple-A Columbus since his return from the 7-day injured list.

He was forced to the IL earlier this month with a finger sprain, and while he returned in relatively short order, it seems Chang is still working to get his timing back. Chang had a strong showing in the Arizona Fall League last year, going 29-for-86 (.337 average) with four homers. The 23-year-old remains on Cleveland's 40-man roster.

Indians' Yu Chang: Diagnosed with finger sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang has been placed on the 7-day injured list due to a left finger sprain, Tribe Insider reports.

It remains to be seen whether Chang will need more than the minimum before returning from the injured list, but it appears he's managed to avoid a significant injury.

April 18, 2019 06:00 PM
Indians' Yu Chang: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang was placed on the 7-day injured list with Triple-A Columbus with an undisclosed injury.

He dealt with a finger injury in spring training, but there has been no word regarding the nature of this most recent injury. Chang was hitting .171 with 13 strikeouts in 11 games so far with the Clippers.

Indians' Yu Chang: Playing in minors game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang (finger) is scheduled to play in a minor-league game Tuesday against the Reds.

Prior to getting demoted from big-league camp last week, Chang had been nursing a minor finger injury. His return to action in a minor-league game suggests he'll enter the Triple-A Columbus season at full strength.

Indians' Yu Chang: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Monday.

Chang is reportedly also carrying a minor finger injury, T.J. Zuppe of The Athletic reports. The young shortstop could earn his first callup at some point this season after hitting a decent .256/.330/.411 with 13 homers for Columbus last year.

Indians' Yu-Cheng Chang: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang was added to the Indians' 40-man roster on Monday to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.

He hit for more power than ever last season at Double-A, hitting a career-high 24 home runs with an impressive .241 ISO. Unfortunately, he also hit just .220 (.254 BABIP) and struck out 26.4 percent of the time. Chang is an average runner and chipped in 11 steals for the second consecutive season. He is a better bet in OBP leagues, as he continues to walk a lot, especially for a middle-infield prospect.

Indians' Yu-Cheng Chang: Shines among Eastern League shortstops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang finished his first Double-A campaign with a .220/.312/.461 slash line, 24 home runs, 66 RBI and 72 runs.

Although his average dipped from his first few professional seasons, Chang impressively led Eastern League shortstops in home runs, RBI and runs. The 22-year-old native of Taiwan also chipped in 11 stolen bases, matching his 2016 total with High-A Lynchburg. Chang will need to improve his batting average, and show more plate discipline before becoming an option for the big-league club.
