BRUCE CHEN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Chen takes the hill for Royals after having start pushed back

Although the pitching staff continues to shine during a four-game winning streak, the Kansas City Royals might have to rely on their resurgent offense if Bruce Chen can't reverse his fortunes against the Minnesota Twins. After having his start delayed, the left-hander looks to avoid his second loss in as many outings against the AL Central rival Twins on Saturday. Kansas City...

Royals' bats hit the snooze button in blowout loss to Twins

Yep, it would be easy to blame the shabby outing from No. 5 starter Bruce Chen, and the subsequent shaky effort from the Royals' bullpen. But the truth is, the Royals' pitiful offense once again let them down. The Royals justifiably can point to their early-season offensive struggles after having faced studs such as Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Chris Sale, Matt Moore and...

This must be a different Bruce Chen this spring

Can't be, at least not the one Royals skipper Ned Yost was talking about at FanFest when he told me that the reason Chen already was a lock for the rotation then was because his spring-training numbers were always too misleading: "I'm going into (spring training) with the mindset that you can't evaluate...

Spring workout with Royals saved Chen's career

It was late February 2009, and the phone call flicked across this Spring Training town northwest of Phoenix from Bruce Chen's house to Rene Francisco at the Royals' complex.

Is Bruce Chen turning into Jaime Moyer?

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...
