Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.
Chen left Sunday's start against Minnesota with a pain in his right side. The move, made Tuesday, is retroactive to May 13.
Chen isn't sure how much time he will miss. Through an interpreter, he said, ''The only thing I can do right now is help myself and get better and not do anything to get worse.''
Signed as a free agent in January 2012 after starring in Japan, the native of Taiwan made 32 starts for Baltimore last year and is 3-3 over eight starts this season.
Also Tuesday, the Orioles recalled right-handed reliever Alex Burnett and infielder Yamaico Navarro. Burnett appeared in one game with Baltimore earlier this month.
BEST OF MAXIM
The move was expected, but it became all but official yesterday afternoon. The Baltimore Orioles are expected to place Wei-Yin Chen on the 15-day DL. He suffered a right oblique strain in his start on Sunday. The injury proved to be severe enough that Chen will have to miss some time to allow it to heal.

The other day on the radio, I heard some argument as to whether or not the Orioles should sign Matt Wieters to a $10 M a year contract. The part that got me was that even the people in favor seemed to assume that Wieters would take such a deal. When I expressed that idea, I received a fair bit of push-back - it seems like people don't think that Wieters is actually that good...
Starting last season, Chris Davis has basically come out of no where to become one of the best power hitters in the game. He emerged last season in his first full season as a Baltimore Oriole, he hit 33 home runs and 85 RBIs. However, his regular season success could not be found in the postseason, where he hit a cold streak and didn’t contribute much to the Orioles postseason...
The Baltimore Orioles have recalled right-handed pitcher Steve Johnson from their Triple-A Norfolk minor league affiliate. He will serve as the Oriole’s fifth starter as Miguel Gonzalez is on the disabled list. In other moves the organization had optioned right-handed pitcher Alex Burnett to the same farm club to make room for Johnson on the active roster. After the game though...
Physics and probability put together are really cool. What are the chances we will ever see a hit ball smack guard rail at just the right speed and angle where it will bounce way up into the air about 20-25 feet then land in the second deck? Probably pretty slim. But that’s exactly what happened with an Adam Jones home run at Target Field when the Baltimore Orioles took on the...
It may seem kind of odd to say that a home run that landed in the upper deck is low, but this dinger that Adam Jones blasted for the Orioles in a 6-0 win Sunday was just that. It just so happened to get one heck of a fortuitous bounce to give the lift it needed at the last second to make the upper deck! Watch and you'll see what I mean!

The Baltimore Orioles recalled left-handed pitcher Michael Belfiore from their Triple-A Norfolk minor league affiliate. He is planning on being used as a middle-relief guy.

On my visit to the Baltimore Sports Hall of Fame today, I got to see some all-time Orioles fantasy baseball stats. Take a look.
Baltimore Orioles all-time leaders.
It looks like Wei-Yin Chen will be on the disabled list. I figured that would happen, it did not look good for Chen when he was on the mound Sunday. He was diagnosed with an oblique strain.
Considering that Chen is perhaps the most consistent starter on the team, it remains to be seen what will happen with the Orioles.

Well, the Baltimore Orioles lost last night to the San Diego Padres, 3-2, in a thrilling game that didn’t end very well.
They rallied in the eighth inning, breaking a 1-1 tie, thanks to a stolen base and heads-up base running by Alexi Casilla, followed by an RBI single from Steve Pearce.
Baltimore was stifled for much of the night by San Diego starter Andrew Cashner; however...
The Baltimore Orioles continue to play well, even though their fragile starting rotation may have taken another hit.
They'll look to Chris Tillman to give them a much-needed strong start when they host the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night.
Baltimore (23-15) has won six of eight and looks forward to an eight-game homestand - the first two coming versus the Padres - after playing...
The Baltimore Orioles always knew Manny Machado was special but not sure if they realized he was going to be this poised for a 20-year old. Machado makes a ridiculous heads up defensive play to bail his team out of a dangerous inning against the Tampa Bay Rays. Again this guy is 20-years old and mature beyond his years.

Baltimore Orioles fans hoping their side can achieve a second successive run into the playoffs this fall know all too well early-season wins make all the difference.
