Bruce Chen

Bruce Kastulo Chen
Batted: Both
Threw: Left
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 210 lbs.
Born: June 19, 1977 in Panama City, Panama
Signed: 1993 by the Atlanta Braves
Acquired: traded from the Philadelphia Phillies with Adam Walker for
Dennis Cook and Turk Wendell, July 2001
Departed: traded to the Montreal Expos with Luis Figueroa,
Dicky Gonzalez, and a player to be named later (Saul Rivera) for Scott Strickland, Phil Seibel, and Matt Watson, April 2002

 

Obtained by the Mets near the 2001 trading deadline along with minor leaguer Adam Walker for bullpen stalwarts Turk Wendell and Dennis Cook, and traded away in the first week of 2002 for more bullpen help, in the form of Scott Strickland. If you'll take a look at Bruce's stats below, though, you'll see that getting traded was not exactly a rarity in his career! Pictured here is his World Premiere subset card from the 1999 Upper Deck Ovation set.  Beneath the stats box there is a card picturing him with the Royals, for whom he enjoyed some success later in his career, and a couple of others too.
