Chen was knocked around a bit in his four-plus innings last night, unable to qualify for the win as Baltimore downed Tampa Bay 6-5.
Fantasy Impact: Similar to last season, Chen once again benefitted from early run support as the O's jumped on top 6-0 to start the game. Although he only yielded three earned runs, he ran up a high pitch count with 96 pitches for 13 outs. Chen will face the Yankees next Monday, hoping to bounce back from a subpar first outing.
