Last night, the Reds pulled off their first big trade of the offseason, acquiring outfielder Shin-Soo Choo and infielder Jason Donald from the Indians. What kind of player did the Reds pick up? Let's take a closer look.

Choo was signed by the Mariners out of South Korea at the age of 18, and spent his first few years in the US working his way up Seattle's minor league system. Looking at his numbers, the thing that stands out the most to me is that from an early age, he got on base at a pretty prodigious clip. His OBP was over .420 his first two years in the Seattle system, and he kept it at an above average level for his entire minor league career. He developed some pop as he progressed up the leagues, and stole 40 bases in his age 21 season.

Shortly after he was called up by Seattle, he was involved in a trade deadline deal with the Indians that involved (former Red) Ben Broussard. It took him a while to break in with the Tribe, but in 2008, he worked his way into the lineup as Cleveland's everyday right fielder. To date, his .381 career OBP isn't too shabby.
