Rangers signed OF Chih-Hsien Chiang to a minor league contract.

Chiang disappointed in his year and a half in Seattle, batting just .249/.281/.363 with seven homers between Double- and Triple-A in 2012. He's just 24 but will need to rebound to be considered a prospect again.

Mariners sent OF Chih-Hsien Chiang outright to Double-A Jackson.

Chiang was designated for assignment last week in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Oliver Perez. He has a .238/.269/.336 batting line in the upper minors this season.

Mariners designated OF Chih-Hsien Chiang for assignment.

This move was made to open a spot on the 40-man roster for Oliver Perez. Should the 24-year-old Chiang pass through waivers unclaimed, he will continue to serve as organizational depth at Double-A Jackson.

Mariners optioned OF Chih-Hsien Chiang to Double-A Jackson.

The Taiwan native batted .302/.361/.537 with 18 homers, 86 RBI and an .897 OPS over 499 plate appearances at the Double-A level last season. He's an intriguing prospect but one who is not yet big league-ready.

Mariners purchased the contract of OF Chih-Hsien Chiang from Double-A Jackson.

Chiang, 23, was acquired along with Trayvon Robinson this summer in the three-way Erik Bedard deal involving the Dodgers and Red Sox. The Taiwan native batted .302/.361/.537 with 18 homers, 86 RBI and an .897 OPS over 499 plate appearances at the Double-A level this season and remains an intriguing offensive prospect.

Mariners acquired OF Chih-Hsien Chiang from the Red Sox and OF Trayvon Robinson from the Dodgers in Sunday's seven-player, three-team Erik Bedard trade.

Chiang, a 23-year-old native of Taiwan, has posted a .338/.399/.647 batting line, 18 home runs and 76 RBI in 87 games this season at Double-A Portland. He has the chance to become a consistently productive outfielder for the offensively depressed Mariners.

Chih-Hsien Chiang went 3-for-4 with a homer, a triple and five RBI for low Single-A Greenville on Thursday.

Chiang, a 19-year-old signed out of Taiwan last year, is batting .309/.323/.489 in 94 at-bats. The left-handed hitter has impressive power potential for a second baseman. If he can stay at the position, he could develop into one of the Red Sox's top prospects over the next couple of years.
