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.

Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen (oblique) is expected to land on the disabled list with a strained oblique. The team thinks Chen could take longer than two weeks to heal from his injury.
Fantasy Tip: Jair Jurrjens and Steven Johnson could both be added to the rotation depending on the health situation with Miguel Gonzalez (thumb). Stay tuned here. If both Jurrjens and Johnson come up, Jurrjens should be your first target if you're scrounging for pitching in deep AL leagues.

Baltimore Orioles SP Jair Jurrjens could be called up from Triple-A Norfolk to join the rotation with SPs Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) and Wei-Yin Chen (oblique) injured. Jurrjens allowed five runs and seven hits while walking none and striking out six in seven innings for Norfolk Monday, May 13. Manager Buck Showalter is deciding between SPs Freddy Garcia and Jason Hammel for Wednesday, May 15, against the San Diego Padres. Chen could start Saturday, May 18, but SP Steven Johnson could be recalled if Chen needs to go on the disabled list. Jurrjens could opt out of his contract June 15.
Fantasy Tip: 2012 was an atrocious season for Jurrjens, and his injuries didn't help him at all. Baltimore may decide to opt for Jurrjens over Johnson if they need an extra starter because of Jurrjen's opt out date approaching. Jurrjens hasn't impressed in the minors, though, so don't expect much from him if he's recalled. He'll strictly be AL-only rotation fodder if you're desperate.
