Taiwanese pitcher Chen Wei-yin has become a free agent after being released this week by his Triple-A minor league team the Tacoma Rainiers, a Seattle Mariners organization.

Chen wrote on Facebook on Saturday that Seattle had been his top choice when he became a free agent in 2015 after leaving the Baltimore Orioles.

“It was like a dream come true for me when I finally got a chance to wear the Mariners’ uniform in 2020,” Chen wrote.
