Wei-Yin Chen: Strained Oblique

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Chen will miss 3-to-4 weeks as a result of his strained right oblique, as he won't be able to touch a baseball for the next two weeks, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Recommendation: The development is a definite setback for an Orioles rotation that has been hammered by injuries this season. Jair Jurrjens will take his spot in the rotation Saturday and should remain there for some time, as Chen slowly but surely gets back to full health. In any case, a mid-June return is the most likely scenario for Chen's future.
