WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Chen was a prominent signing for the Pirates, as the bonus shows.  He throws in the low-90s with three other solid pitches, and is considered advanced for a pitcher his age.  There may be some question about his projection.

The Pirates sent Chen to the Florida Complex League for 2021.
