Former Orioles lefty Wei-Yin Chen returns to Camden Yards
Former Orioles lefty Wei-Yin Chen returns to Camden Yards. The Orioles’ contract with left hander Chen — the team paid him about $16 million for four seasons after signing him out of the Japan Central League — was an incredible value, especially given the premium placed on starting pitching. Chen, 32, had 9.4 wins over replacement over that stretch while averaging 29 starts and 177 innings, posting a 3.72 ERA in 117 starts.
After receiving a big deal with the Marlins, former Orioles lefty Wei-Yin Chen has found challenges staying healthy.
