Chih-Hsien Chiang Rumors
The latest outright assignments from around MLB...
- The Red Sox announced that they activated outfielder Jason Repko from the 60-day disabled list and outrighted him to Triple-A.
- The Mariners outrighted outfielder Chih-Hsien Chiang to the Double-A Jackson Generals, the team announced on its website. The Mariners designated Chiang for assignment earlier this month to create roster space for Oliver Perez. The 24-year-old, who was acquired from the Red Sox in last summer's Erik Bedard trade, has a .238/.269/.336 batting line in the upper minors this year.
Chiang, 24, was acquired by the M's in the three-way swap that sent Erik Bedard to the Red Sox prior to last summer's non-waiver trade deadline. The left-handed hitter posted a .242/.273/.342 line in 59 games at Double-A and Triple-A this season, a poor showing after a promising 2011 in which he .302/.361/.537 in Boston's and Seattle's organizations.
