Orioles | Wei-Yin Chen to DL

Tue, 14 May 2013 11:27:32 -0700

The Baltimore Orioles placed SP Wei-Yin Chen (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 14, and recalled RP Alex Burnett from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding move. Chen's DL stint is retroactive to May 13.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear who the O's will choose to replace Chen in the rotation with between Jair Jurrjens and Steven Johnson. Both pitchers could be in the rotation if Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) needs more time to recover from a thumb blister, too. Stay tuned.

Orioles | Miguel Gonzalez to DL

Thu, 09 May 2013 12:07:59 -0700

The Baltimore Orioles placed SP Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) on the 15-day disabled list with blister on his thumb Thursday, May 9, and recalled RP Alex Burnett from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: The team was hoping that Gonzalez could be pushed back to this weekend, but that won't be the case. Steven Johnson is now healthy and was due to make his start with Norfolk Saturday, so he's the logical candidate to replace Gonzalez in the rotation. Johnson isn't likely as good as his numbers last year suggest in a small sample size. If he gets the rotation spot, he's worth watching for a few starts before using a roster spot on him in a mixed league.
