Orioles' ALDS rotation taking shape


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12:11 pm ET) Orioles manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun he will use four starting pitchers for the American League Divisional Series. Chris Tillman is on course to be the team's starter for Game 1 on Oct. 2, and Miguel Gonzalez and Wei-Yin Chen are the likely starters for Games 2 and 3, though their order has yet to be determined.

Should the series advance to a Game 4, Bud Norris would be the leading candidate to make that start.


Wei-Yin Chen suffers fifth loss of the season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen took the loss Monday night against the Yankees in New York, dropping to 16-5 on the year. He allowed four runs -- two earned -- on six hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings of a 5-0 defeat.

Chen owns a 3.56 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 30 starts (179 2/3 innings). His final start of the regular season will come Sunday in Toronto.


Orioles shuffle starting rotation


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) The Orioles will start right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez at the Yankees on Tuesday, allowing them to stick to their plan of giving each of their starting pitchers an extra day of rest heading into the postseason.

"There's a fine line between not having enough rest and having too much rest, so we're trying to have every guy that pitches get one extra day before the start," manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun. “We're going to try to give everybody, so you're not too far away from the ball but you get a little extra rest. They all seem to respond well to that."

While left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start Monday at the Yankees, right-hander Chris Tillman won't start again until Friday at Toronto. Miguel Gonzalez will start the team's final game Sunday at Toronto.

As of now, Bud Norris and Kevin Gausman are scheduled to start Wednesday's and Thursday's games at the Yankees, but that could change. Jimenez could end up making a second start before season's end.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen nearly turned in a quality start in a win over the Blue Jays Monday night, improving to 16-4 on the year. He allowed two runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out six over 5 2/3 innings of work.

Chen owns a 3.58 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 29 starts (173 2/3 innings). The southpaw will take the mound Monday in New York against the Yankees.

Wei-Yin Chen loses perfect game, but earns Wednesday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen lost his perfect game and no-hitter Wednesday on a Dan Butler double in the sixth inning. He lost his shutout on a Xander Bogaerts homer in the seventh. And he nearly lost his win due to a shaky bullpen effort in the ninth.

Chen, however, did earn the victory to raise his record to 15-4. He retired the first Red Sox batters in order and finished with one earned run allowed on three hits in seven innings. He walked none and fanned four to lower his ERA to 3.59.

The southpaw ran his shutout streak to 12 innings before the homer. He will seek to start another Monday against Toronto.
