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.

Indians' Yu-Cheng Chang: Exits with injury Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang exited Tuesday's game with Double-A Akron early after being hit by a pitch on his right hand.

Chang will likely undergo testing on his injured hand Wednesday, at which point we'll have a better idea as to the severity of the injury. For now, the shortstop prospect will be considered day-to-day.

Indians' Yu-Cheng Chang: Displaying power stroke at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chang is hitting .201/.277/.475 with nine home runs, 21 RBI and 20 runs through his first 38 games at Double-A Akron.

The Tribe's No. 7 prospect has the fourth-most home runs among all Eastern League players. Not only does his long ball count lead the RubberDucks, but Chang's 20 runs scored is tops on the team, too. The big problem for Chang in 2017 has been his 32.5 percent strikeout rate, which is up almost 10 points from the 23.1 percent mark he posted in 2016 at High-A. His bat will need to carry the rest of the profile, as he is capable, but not extraordinary in the field, and he will need to cut back on the strikeouts as the season goes on if this campaign is to be viewed as a success.
