Taipei, June 27 (CNA) Taiwanese pitcher Wei-Yin Chen (陳偉殷) has become a free agent after being released this week by his Triple-A minor league team the Tacoma Rainiers, a Seattle Mariners organization.

In his Facebook post on Saturday, Chen mentioned how 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," he said.

"Although I won't be able to play as a Mariner this season, I will always treasure this short yet wonderful moment," the pitcher said, hoping fans will continue support him wherever he goes.
