Player Notes
Bruce Chen has been scratched from his scheduled start Thursday due to a tight left glute muscle.

Advice: Chen said he's been dealing with the tweaked glute for about a week, which might explain the Twins getting to him for six runs in 3 2/3 innings his last time out. James Shields' start was bumped up to Thursday to accommodate, and the hope is that Chen will be ready to start Saturday's game -- a rematch with those Twins -- instead.

Bruce Chen was hammered in Friday's loss to the Twins, surrendering six runs on seven hits in just 3 2/3 innings of work.

Advice: The veteran southpaw walked two and struck out three on the night. He generally gets by on smoke and mirrors with pinpoint command, but didn't have his best stuff in this one and was far too hittable. He will carry a 5.40 ERA and 1.50 WHIP into his next start, and despite the juicy matchup against the Astros in Houston, he shouldn't be trusted in mixed leagues.
