Wei-Yin Chen beats Baltimore

Wei-Yin Chen allowed three runs on eight hits with a walk and two strikeouts over six innings against the Orioles Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Chen beat his former team, moving to 2-3 on the season. He did OK in the favorable matchup, but he's not very fantasy relevant this season given his inconsistency and lack of strikeout and win upside. He now has an ERA and WHIP of 5.91 and 1.62 on the season.

Wei-Yin Chen can't get out of the fifth inning again

Wei-Yin Chen had another start where he was unable to complete the fifth inning on Monday. He pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on six hits and four walks.

Fantasy Impact

Formerly a solid fantasy starter, Chen has become useless in all formats at this point. He's basically a batting practice pitcher for the opposing team at this point in his career.

Wei-Yin Chen can't finish the fifth on Wednesday

Wei-Yin Chen didn't pitch poorly on Wednesday, but he was still unable to make it through five innings. He ended up pitching 4 1/3, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two.

Fantasy Impact

Chen has had some awful starts and some decent starts, but overall he hasn't been worth consideration in any kind of fantasy format this season. That's unlikely to change any time soon.

Wei-Yin Chen gets rocked by Padres

Wei-Yin Chen only lasted 1 2/3 innings Thursday, allowing four runs on four hits and two walks with four strikeouts in the loss.

Fantasy Impact

Prior to this blowup, Chen had been solid over his previous three starts, allowing only three runs over his previous 17 innings. The start before that stretch was also a blowup, and considering the disappointing start against a favorable matchup in SD, Chen is hard to trust moving forward.

Wei-Yin Chen has his best start of the season by far

Wei-Yin Chen had his best start of the season by far on Saturday, throwing 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball, allowing just three hits and a walk while striking out six.

Fantasy Impact

Chen had actually held the potent Nationals lineup scoreless for seven innings, but he allowed a solo home run in the eighth inning, and ended up with a no decision in a game the Marlins would figure out how to lose. Chen's season numbers are still ugly, but he's had three straight good starts, allowing three runs on 11 hits over his past 17 innings.
