Chan was throwing 90.7 mph in high school but focused on hitting later on. The Chinatrust Brothers took him in the second round of the 2016 CPBL draft, taking Chih-Chieh Su in the prior round.

Despite not qualifying for the batting title, he still tied for 8th in the league in dingers (with Su and Yi-Chuan Lin). Had he qualified, he would have ranked 5th in average, 6th in OBP and tied for third in slugging (with Yu-Hsien Chu and Chih-Hao Chang). He won Rookie of the Year honors.
