Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen suffered his third loss of the season Wednesday, May 20, against the Seattle Mariners. Chen allowed four runs and eight hits over seven innings. It was the first time in eight starts this season Chen allowed more than three runs.
Fantasy Tip: Chen ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has been benefiting from an opponent BABIP of just .222 through 42 and two-third innings. Chen's 4.57 xFIP signals more regression on the way and FantasyScore owners will need to proceed with severe caution when considering using Chen in lineups.

Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen is 4-0 with a 1.67 ERA in his career against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Fantasy Tip: Chen ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) isn't a terrible midrange starting pitching option for daily lineups Tuesday. The Rays are a team that isn't expected to be very feared on offense in 2015.

Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen will start Tuesday, April 7, against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Fantasy Tip: Chen ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) only threw 68 pitches in his final spring start, and the buzz is he could be on a pitch count in this outing. He was 1-1 with a 3.67 ERA in five starts against Tampa Bay last season, and Chen was 8-4 on the road. Chen should perform well in this outing, making him a safe bet.
