Player Notes
Marlins placed LHP Wei-Yin Chen on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 21, with a left elbow sprain.

Advice: Chen having an elbow issue was first reported by SiriusXM's Craig Mish. Manager Don Mattingly said that the club is hopeful the injury isn't serious, but it sounds like they might not know for sure until after Chen is examined further. Jarred Cosart has placed Chen in the rotation for the time being, but the Marlins are expected to seek rotation help before the trade deadline.

SiriusXM's Craig Mish reports that Wei-Yin Chen's injury is arm related and is "could be (his) elbow."

Advice: The Marlins announced Saturday that Chen would not start Monday, but they didn't reveal the nature of his injury. It's unclear at this point how serious the ailment might be, but we should find out before long. Jarred Cosart is taking Chen's spot in the rotation for now, but the club is almost surely going to land a starter prior to the trade deadline.

Wei-Yin Chen has been scratched from his scheduled start Monday against the Phillies.

Advice: It's an injury, but there are no specifics yet. Look for an update Sunday morning. Jarred Cosart will be called up from Triple-A New Orleans to take the hill instead.

Wei-Yin Chen was touched up for four runs on 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Wednesday.

Advice: He managed to fan five batters without walking anyone but got hit early and often. The loss moves his record to 5-4 with a 4.99 ERA. He has a league-average strikeout rate and an excellent walk rate. Home runs have been the problem this year. He has given up 20 longballs in 19 starts.

Wed, Jul 20 Rotoworld
Wei-Yin Chen surrendered four runs on six hits in six innings but did not factor into the decision in the Marlins' 7-6 come-from-behind victory over the Cardinals on Friday.

Advice: He struck out five and walked one. All the damage came in the fourth inning when he gave up a solo homer to Stephen Piscotty and a three-run homer to Tommy Pham. He has given up 19 home runs already in his 18 starts. Chen is having a poor year in a pitchers' park in Miami after having a very good year in a hitters' park in Baltimore last season. He will take his 5-2 record and 4.90 ERA into a road matchup with the Phillies next week.
