Wei-Yin Chen dominates Monday

Wei-Yin Chen dominated the Phillies on Monday, going eight shutout innings. He only allowed five base runners (four hits and a walk) while striking out nine.

Fantasy Impact: He has quietly been having a very good season, despite the 3-4 record. He now has a 2.89 ERA with a respectable WHIP and 71 Ks for the season. He is a sneaky good play in non-shallow leagues or in DFS.

Wei-Yin Chen went five innings, allowing two runs and eight base runners (seven hits, one walk). He managed five strikeouts and was awarded the win.

Fantasy Impact: Chen is an effective option as a back of the rotation starter in deeper fantasy leagues. He has only allowed as many as four earned runs once in his last 10 outings. He is not an elite strikeout pitcher but he will not kill you given his 57 Ks in 68 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Chen looked solid today striking out his season high of nine batters. Even though Chen earned a no decision, he looked very good in his outing. Chen this season is 1-4, with a 3.18 ERA in 68 innings pitched, and 57 strike outs. Chen's season has been dominated by pretty good starts, with little to no offensive support. Chen would be a solid middle of the rotation guy for a team looking for some depth at their pitching position. Chen will look to get back into the win column in his next start.

Chen allowed five extra base hits on Wednesday as Baltimore's offense faltered in a 4-2 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Chen appeared to have run up Justin Ruggiano for the third out in the fourth inning but John Hirschbeck had other ideas. Two pitches later, Ruggiano launched a two-run bomb to the left field bleachers to extend the lead to three. Although he allowed a season high four earned runs, Chen lasted seven innings for the third straight start. Usually one to benefit from the Orioles' potent offense, Chen was left out to dry as Roenis Elias shutdown the O's. One of the more consistent pitchers this season, Chen has logging quality innings for his fantasy owners over the past month in each start.

On Saturday, Wei-Yin Chen pitched six innings on his way to a no decision. During the six innings, Chen allowed seven hits, and two runs while walking two and striking out four.

Fantasy Impact: Chen was able to build off of his last start, a no decision against the Boston Red Sox. In that start, he went eight innings, striking out five and walking one. With the no decision against the Rays, Chen stays at 0-1 over his first five starts of the season. Chen is pitching well for the Orioles and he is the perfect candidate to buy low on. He has very little risk that comes with picking him up and a ton of upside; get Chen now when he is a buy-low candidate.

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.
