Southern Maryland Signs Former Major League Infielder Chin-Lung Hu

Last season, he split time between Mets, their Triple-A affiliate Buffalo, and the Gulf Coast Mets(RK). He is a minor league career .296 hitter with 47 home runs, 305 RBI and 100 stolen bases.

Hu didn't put up huge stats in the major leagues, but is a solid minor league hitter. He's a great pick up for the Crabs, who can use him at second base or shortstop.
