Biographical Information[edit]

Yu-Hsien Chu has been CPBL MVP and has played for the Taiwanese national team.

Chu was a 7th-round pick of the Lamigo Monkeys in the 2015 CPBL draft. [1] He hit .352/.459/.615 for the Lamigo Monkeys in the 2016 CPBL. Had he qualified, he would have ranked 5th in average and 6th in slugging. [2] He had no shot at Rookie of the Year, though, as Po-Jung Wang had the best rookie season in CPBL history. In 2017, he was Lamigo's main left fielder but also played significant time at 1B, hitting .308/.397/.610 with 29 doubles, 27 home runs and 83 RBI. He was second in RBI (18 behind Wang), second in slugging (.090 behind Wang), 4th in doubles (between Chih-Chieh Su and Hung-Yu Lin) and second in home runs (four behind Wang). He did not make the Best Ten as Cheng-Wei Chang and Chih-Hao Chang joined Wang in the outfield. He helped Lamigo win the 2017 Taiwan Series.

In the 2018 CPBL, the LF/1B slumped to .319/.375/.479 with 12 homers but still drove in 82. He was 3rd in RBI behind Chih-Hsien Chiang and Wang. He drove in four in the 2018 Taiwan Series finale as Lamigo won again. He produced at a .347/.394/.605 clip in 2019 with 26 doubles, 30 home runs, 93 runs and 105 RBI. He made the leaderboards in average (5th, between Hung-Yu Lin and Chin-Lung Hu), OBP (6th), slugging (4th, between Chun-Hsiu Chen and Hung-Yu Lin), RBI (2nd, 3 behind Yi-Chuan Lin), runs (3rd, behind Hung-Yu Lin and Li Lin), doubles (tied for 4th) and dingers (1st, 3 ahead of Yi-Chuan Lin and Su). He won CPBL MVP for his efforts. Lamigo won the 2019 Taiwan Series.

Chu then was on Taiwan's team for the 2019 Premier 12.
