RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

The 21-year-old shortstop from Taiwan continued his improvement in 2016. In 109 games at High-A Lynchburg, Chang slashed .256/.332/.463. He increased his average over 25 points and drew nearly 20 more walks than the season prior, showing an advanced approach at the dish. Chang also tapped into his power potential, smacking 13 home runs while driving home 70 runs. With 11 stolen bases to his credit as well in 2016, Chang is emerging as a prospect with significant upside. He must prove he can hit for an even higher average as he continues his ascension towards the majors. In addition, the Indians have budding superstar Francisco Lindor at shortstop for the foreseeable future, so a position change could be in the works. He should begin next season at Double-A.
