Royals designate Chen day after lefty yields 6 runs in 10th inning

  The Kansas City Royals designated left-hander Bruce Chen for assignment Friday after six seasons with the team.

He was in the Royals rotation when the season began, but went on the 60-day disabled list with a back...

Come On CHEN…..To Omaha

So the Vultures are officially circling.  It is time to put Bruce Chen to pasture.  I have been a fan of his the past few years, but this year he has really shown his age.  With a 7.45 ERA and some truly awful outings from the bullpen, Chen and his $3 million dollar contract, have lost all value on this team (on the field anyways).  As rosters get expanded next week it would...

Extra Tough Loss For Chen, Royals 11-5

Last time out, Jeremy Guthrie pitched seven innings, while battling through a fifty-three minute rain delay. Luckily, there was no rain in sight, and Jeremy Guthrie was allowed an uninterrupted start tonight. Unfortunately, Guthrie’s start would be a bad one. Tonight’s contest between the Twins had a rather odd start. Not that Jeremy Guthrie allowing two runs in an inning is...

Stripper calls out two Royals pitchers for being cheapskates

Royals pitchers Bruce Chen and Yordano Ventura crossed the wrong stripper. Isabel Kennedy, writer and stripper based out of Minneapolis, was on-hand to witness how some Royals players acted while in a strip club. She wasn’t afraid to call-out a couple of players for their cheapness. I'm about shaming trashdick pro athletes @ work; the #KCRoyals players that came in last night...

Is Bruce Chen turning into Jaime Moyer?

by John Viril— Soft-tossing lefty Bruce Chen keeps rolling along. He’s logged at least 6 innings and surrendered no more than 2 runs in five straight starts after Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost inserted him into the starting rotation July 12. Chen continued his fabulous run Thursday night with his strongest start yet in the Royals 5-1 victory over Boston. The lefty went...

Chen surprises Angels with strong outing

Friday night's Royals-Angels game in Anaheim, Calif., turned out to be Exhibit A of why you should almost never trust spring-training numbers. Royals left-hander Bruce Chen, beaten and battered by opponents most of spring training, completely baffled the Angels through six dominant innings. The Royals' offense, so powerful and productive throughout spring training, was...

On The Mound: Bruce Chen Edition

The 34-year-old lefty has played pretty solidly for the Royals the past three years. In 20 starts last year, Bruce Chen won 12 of them and had a 3.77 ERA. In order for the Royals to have a successful season they are going to need dependable veteran players like Chen. Also you have to consider the fact that Chen only has a base salary of 2 million dollars. I believe that Dayton did...
