Keep Your Chin Chen Up

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Chin-Feng Chen, the Adrian Beltre of Las Vegas (okay - maybe I'm stretching it), has been promoted to the majors again to replace reserve outfielder Jayson Werth, who is apparently headed for the disabled list.

Like Beltre, Chen is trying to put past disappointment behind him with a torrid first week, OPSing 1.119.

Nick Christensen of the Las Vegas Sun points out that if the promotion were to stick, it would harm Chen's pursuit of ... Las Vegas' all-time home run and strikeout records. He also notes that Chen has become a little skittish.

"I don't think he believed me at first, because we screw around with him so much," joked 51s manager Terry Kennedy when asked about Chen's reaction to being promoted.
