Mets acquire Shortstop Chin-lung Hu in minor trade with Dodgers


The Mets quietly announced a minor trade Monday, acquiring shortstop Chin-lung Hu from the Los Angeles Dodgers for minor league left-handed pitcher Mike Antonini. Hu, 26, split last season between the Dodgers and Triple-A Albuquerque of the Pacific Coast League. The 5-foot-11, 188-pounder started the season with the Triple-A Isotopes before being recalled to the majors on June 17. The right-hand-hitting Hu returned to Triple-A on June 23, before he was called back to the Dodgers on September 6. He appeared in 14 games with the Dodgers in 2010 and got 3 hits in 23 at-bats. Hu was considered a defensive gem, however he was unable to build upon a minor-league campaign in 2007 when he had an on-base percentage of .364 and slugging percentage of .507 in Double-A and Triple-A combined. In his major-league career, Hu has a .241 OBP and .283 slugging over 191 plate appearances. The Mets now have seven middle infielders on their 40-man roster, including Hu, Justin Turner and recent Rule 5 pick Brad Emaus, all of whom will presumably battle for a bench role in Spring Training. This should light a fire under Reyes to stay healthy and play better defense.. Hu by the Numbers:
