Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen has piled up the wins this season, and now has started to become a more complete pitcher, by lowering his ERA and WHIP during the second half of 2014.
Insight: Sitting with a 15-4 overall record and a 3.59 ERA, Chen has been a major reason why Baltimore is in the position they are in. Since the All-Star Break, he has posted a spectacular 6-1 record, 2.67 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. That trend has continued over his past three starts (2-0, 2.29 ERA and 0.92 WHIP). Start him with confidence.
 
Hot9/5/2014 10:40:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen pitched six shutout innings against the Rays but received a no-decision on Friday.
Insight: That's because Rays starter Alex Cobb pitched seven shutout innings and the Rays finally broke through with three runs in the eighth. Still, the start is encouraging for Chen, who won his last start but really had not pitched up to his expectations since the middle of August. Chen is having a great season overall, posting a 14-4 record, 3.69 ERA with 119 strikeouts.
 
Hot8/20/2014 10:52:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen has been on a roll since the start of July.
Insight: Chen has gone 6-1 with a 2.98 ERA and a 44/9 K/BB in 51 1/3 innings over his last eight starts. He threw 7 1/3 innings, struck out seven and allowed three runs in Wednesday's win to improve to 13-4 on the year.
 
Hot8/1/2014 9:47:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen went 4-0 with a 2.92 ERA over four starts in July and he won his fifth straight start Friday against the Mariners.
Insight: Chen (3.76 ERA, 1.24 WHIP) threw 7 1/3 innings and allowed one run on five hits while striking out eight. He's now tied for second in the majors with 12 wins. The left-hander has allowed more than a hit per inning and 1.30 HR/9 this season, but he's balanced it out with 1.52 BB/9.
 
5/9/2014 9:46:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen has allowed 10 earned runs in his last 30 1/3 innings after giving up eight in his first 10 2/3.
Insight: Chen's ERA dropped to 3.95 after he allowed two runs on five hits in seven innings Friday against Houston. He's allowed 50 hits in 41 innings this season, but a .351 BABIP is the main reason for that.
 
10/10/2013 8:52:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen had surgery to remove bone spurs in his right knee Thursday, according to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com.
Insight: Chen allowed 11 home runs in his final 48 2/3 innings and had a 5.92 ERA in that span to finish with a 4.07 ERA on the year. He should be ready for spring training.
 
9/7/2013 8:31:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen had an 8/0 K/BB and gave up two earned runs on six hits in six innings Saturday against the White Sox.
Insight: The game went to extra innings so Chen didn't receive a decision. The left-hander had walked eight batters and allowed 12 hits and 11 earned runs in 7 2/3 innings over his last two starts.
 
Cold9/1/2013 10:49:00 AM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen was recalled Sunday to start against the Yankees.
Insight: The O's demoted Chen to the Gulf Coast League as a procedural move after his last start. Fantasy owners should avoid Chen Sunday after the lefty went 1-4 with a 6.00 ERA in August.
 
8/27/2013 10:34:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen had more trouble with the longball Tuesday at Boston, allowing two of them in an eight-run outing against the Red Sox.
Insight: Chen gave up eight hits and walked three over 3 2/3 innings. He has given up two home runs in each of his last three starts and nine over his last 44 2/3 frames (1.81 HR/9) after allowing three in his first 60 2/3 innings.
 
8/21/2013 10:25:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen snapped a three-game losing streak with seven strong innings Wednesday against the Rays.

Cold8/16/2013 10:26:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen lost his third straight start Friday night against the Rockies.
Insight: Chen gave up three runs in each of his previous four starts and four over 6 1/3 innings Friday night. Chen is an extreme flyball pitcher, so his success is tied to the longball. He allowed just three over his first 60 2/3 innings and had a 2.67 ERA in that span, but the lefty has allowed five over his last 34 and has a 4.24 ERA during that timeframe.
 
7/30/2013 10:30:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen struck out nine batters and gave up three runs over 7 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Astros.
Insight: The Astros are known to strike out quite a bit, even against non-strikeout pitchers like Chen. The lefty is 6-3 with a 2.87 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP and 46 strikeouts in 75 1/3 innings this season.
 
7/10/2013 10:28:00 PM
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen was terrific Wednesday in his return from the disabled list.
Insight: The lefty from Taiwan only allowed one run and three hits over seven innings. He leads all O's starters this season with a 2.82 ERA in nine starts.

Description: Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen (oblique) will make a minor league rehab start Saturday, according to MLB.com.
Insight: Chen, who is dealing with a strained oblique, hasn't pitched since May 12. Manager Buck Showalter said it's possible Chen will make just one rehab start. "I think it's just a test," Chen said. "Get the game feeling back and that's it. Right now I'm pitching like it's Spring Training. It's step by step. But if I feel really good [after the] next outing, I'll definitely come back really soon." Showalter said the team will give Chen extra rest between his first few outings after he comes off the DL.
 
6/20/2013 6:14:00 PM

5/14/2013 4:35:00 PM
Description: The Orioles have placed left-hander Wei-Yin Chen on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.
