Kansas City Royals SP Bruce Chen allowed four runs in the first inning over five innings against minor leaguers Thursday, March 21. However, he gave up no runs and two singles while striking out four and walking none over his final four innings. Chen is competing with SP Luis Mendoza for the final rotation spot.
Fantasy Tip: Chen is the favorite to win the last rotation spot, even though Mendoza has more upside of the two. Chen is useful in the deepest of AL leagues, but only as an innings eater.
