Che-Hsuan Lin [Chay shoo-ahn Lin] (born September 21, 1988 in Hualien, Taiwan) is a center fielder who has played from 2007 through 2008 in the Boston Red Sox minor league system for the GCL Red Sox (2007), NYPL Lowell Spinners (2007) and SAL Greenville Drive (2008). Listed at 6' 1", 183 lb., he bats and throws right-handed.
The 19-year-old Lin has been well known in the Taiwan baseball circles since 2000, when he helped his 12-and-under Bronco League team to the World Championship with a grand slam. He also has played with other Taiwan national teams, including the Junior World Championship squad in 2007.
Lin was acquired by the Red Sox as an International free agent in June 2007. He has put up solid numbers since joining the professional baseball ranks in the United States the same year, being rated as having the best outfield arm in the Boston minor league system, according to Baseball America. Basically a line-drive hitter, he makes good contact - quick, strong wrists - with average gap power, hitting well to all fields. Lin has also been recognized for his solid outfield skills, having good range, enough speed and a hard throwing arm.
In 2008, Lin was selected for the annual All-Star Futures Game, which took place on July 13 at Yankee Stadium. Lin hit a two-run home run on the first pitch he saw that helped the World team beat the US Team, 3–0. He finished 2-for-2 and was named the game's Most Valuable Player.
