Chen allowed an early run in the second inning, but that was just the beginning. He served up a two-run home run to Asdrubal Cabrera in the fourth before giving up two more runs in the fifth, including a solo shot by Evan Longoria. 

This was the first time in the month of August that Chen allowed more than three runs in a start. Overall, in six starts this month, Chen went 3-1 with a 3.79 ERA.

Run support allows Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen to cruise to win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2015) The Orioles scored 17 runs while starter Wei-Yin Chen was in the game Sunday against Oakland.

Yeah, he won.

It would have taken a disastrous performance not to. Chen, however, pitched well. He gave up just two runs on eight hits in six inning with no walks and six strikeouts.

A second-inning double by Sam Fuld and solo blast by Brett Lawrie in the fourth prevented Chen from hurling shutout ball.

Chen has yielded just three runs over his last 13 1/3 innings and has won three straight decisions to raise his record to 7-6.


Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen back on track in Monday victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2015) Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen arrived on the mound Monday in Seattle hoping to find the groove that marked most of his season.

Mission accomplished.

It took a while, but Chen locked in early enough to hold the Mariners to just one run on three hits in 7 1/3 innings. He walked two and fanned five in evening his record to 6-6.

His lone mistake wounded up over the fence in the second inning, courtesy of Franklin Gutierrez. Chen yielded just one hit the rest of the way and retired 13 batters in a row before a walk forced him from the game.

Arguably his best outing since June 15 ended a two-start slump in which he had surrendered nine runs in 8 1/3 innings.


Orioles' Chris Tillman has start pushed to Tuesday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2015) The Orioles pushed pitcher Chris Tillman's start back two days from Sunday to Tuesday.

Orioles' Wei-Yin Chen has uneven start against A's on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/5/2015) Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen was inconsistent in his outing against the A's on Wednesday. The left-hander allowed three runs on four hits, but an average of about 17 1/2 pitches per inning caused him to last just five innings. He walked four and struck out four, throwing 52 of his 88 pitches for strikes.

Chen did not factor in Wednesday's decision, as the Orioles rallied to tie and then win the game 7-3 in extra innings. He left the game with his club down 3-1, but the O's tied the game in the sixth and won in the 10th thanks to a Chris Davis grand slam.

Chen has won just once in his past six starts, posting a 4.63 ERA over that stretch.


Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen escapes shaky outing with no-decision


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen matched a career-low with 3 1/3 innings in Friday's 8-7 win over the Tigers. Chen allowed six runs on 10 hits. He did strike out six without walking a batter, but that was more of a footnote on what was a horrid start for Chen.

The left-hander allowed a run in each of the first two innings before giving up a two-run home run to J.D. Martinez in the third. In the fourth, Chen allowed back-to-back solo home runs to James McCann and Jefry Marte.

Chen was able to escape with a no-decision however, as the Orioles' bats were able to rally back for the victory. He made six starts in July and went 2-2 with a 4.03 ERA over that stretch.


Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen earns fifth win of year Sunday


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/26/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen picked up his fifth win of the season on Sunday.

Chen allowed just two runs on six hits in 5 1/3 innings of work. He struck out three batters and gave up just one walk. Chen's mistakes came on a pair of solo home runs he allowed in the fourth inning, otherwise he shut down the Rays' offense completely.

Believing that he still had more left in the tank, Chen was upset when manager Buck Showalter pulled him from the game, per CSN Baltimore.

"Anybody will be angry when you get taken out of the game in that situation," Chen said.

Chen improved to 5-6 with the win. He has an impressive 2.88 ERA on the season.

Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen added back to MLB roster on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/26/2015) The Orioles have officially recalled left-hander Wei-Yin Chen from Class A Frederick. Chen was already expected to make the start on Friday against the Indians, so this is really more of a formality.

Pitcher T.J. McFarland was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.


Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen says no 'regret' after Single-A start


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/20/2015) Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen, who was sent down to Single-A on Tuesday -- a move that drew the ire of both the pitcher and his agent -- made his start Saturday and said there were no hard feelings about the move, per MASNSports.com.

Chen, who had pitched a solid game with Baltimore before being sent down in a move that the team said was made for keeping him fresh, threw three scoreless innings before the game was called due to rain. 

"We talked, me and [manager] Buck [Showalter] talked, and I accept. ... I was disappointed but still I accepted the decision," Chen said through his translator. "I believe the team had its reason. We just better leave this in the past and now my only focus is to help the team win the championship."

Chen, who will return to the Orioles on Friday, is 3-4 with a 2.89 ERA in 13 starts this season. 


Orioles option SP Wei-Yin Chen to Class A on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/16/2015) The Orioles have optioned left-hander Wei-Yin Chen to Class A Frederick on Tuesday. Chen pitched on Monday and was magnificent against the Phillies. But he will head to the minor leagues in an effort to miss the upcoming series with the Blue Jays, a team that hits lefties well. 

If the Orioles keep Chen on a five-day rotation, he will be in-line to make his next start on June 26 at home against the Indians. Manager Buck Showalter said keeping Chen fresh for the long haul was also a consideration for him being sent down.

"The number one thing is Wei-Yin and making sure he’s around in September and October, pitching at the level he pitched last night," Showalter said.

The move to the minors opens up a spot for Chris Parmelee, who was recalled from Triple-A on Tuesday. The Orioles also moved infielder Jonathan Schoop to the 60-day disabled list, according to CSN Baltimore.

Wei-Yin Chen hard-luck loser for Orioles


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/30/2015) Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen put together another quality start Saturday but it wasn't enough in a 3-0 loss to the Rays, continuing a tough trend for the pitcher. 

It's the ninth time in 10 starts that Chen has allowed three or fewer earned runs, but during that time span, he's only got one win on his ledger. Chen allowed single runs in each of the first three innings, but wound up going seven innings, scattering six hits while striking out four. 

"I tried to keep the ball down, I tried to keep the opponent from scoring runs," Chen said through an interpreter to MLB.com. "Unfortunately, I allowed some extra-base hits in the first three innings. One of the home runs, that wasn't a good pitch. It wasn't the location I wanted it to be."

Chen falls to 1-4 on the season but has a solid ERA of 3.21.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen is dealing with some soreness, but he is set to start Saturday against Tampa Bay anyway, per MLB.com.

Chen has struggled in his last two outings in raising his ERA from 2.53 to 3.13. He has worked his way out of jams, but has allowed seven runs on 19 hits in his last 12 innings. His saving grace has been control - he has not walked a batter during that stretch.


Orioles' Wei-Yin Chen strikes out six in no-decision vs. Astros


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Orioles pitcher Wei-Yin Chen didn't factor into the decision on Monday, allowing three earned runs on 11 hits in five innings while striking out six and walking none in his team's 4-3 win over the Astros.

Chen was staked to a 2-0 lead after the second inning, but he served up a solo home run in the third inning and followed it up by giving up two runs on a bloop single in the fifth. It was the first time in six starts that the starter failed to complete six innings.

"I allowed a lot of hits today," Chen said through interpreter Louis Chao, per MASNSports.com. "But I'm thankful for my teammates, who played good defense behind me. That ball wasn't hit that hard, but it dropped in a bad place for me. All I can do after that is manage damage control."

Chen owns a 3.13 ERA and 44:14 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rays on Saturday.
