Starting Pitchers:

Wei-Yen Chen, Orioles - Chen is scheduled to come off the DL on Tuesday this week to face the Rangers, after dealing with an oblique injury. He'll return to a 3.04 ERA (4.73 xFIP) with 27 strikeouts and 12 walks over 47.1 innings. His strikeout rate has fallen from a season ago, his debut in the majors, but his walk rate and home run rate too have fallen, thus helping to lower his ERA. If he can somehow start missing bats at the rate he did last season, Chen could be useful asset to all AL only owners. As it, he has fringe-average command is someone mixed league owners will want to spot-start, if at all possible. Last season with the Oriole he had a 4.02 ERA (4.34 xFIP) with 154 strikeouts and 57 walks over 192.2 innings. This week he should face the Rangers and Blue Jays at home. Mixed: $3; AL: $12.
