Orioles lefty Wei-Yin Chen left today’s start against the Twins with an apparent oblique strain. After getting the final out of the fifth inning, he was seen grabbing his right side and was replaced in the sixth inning by Tommy Hunter. Over five innings, Chen held the Twins scoreless on five hits and no walks while striking out three.

MLB.com’s Britt Ghiroli suggests that a stint on the disabled list is likely, as is the case for most oblique strains. Chen entered the afternoon with a 3.40 ERA over seven starts, continuing to be the Orioles’ most reliable starter.

However, Ghiroli also tweeted that Chen wasn’t in pain after the game and hopes to avoid the DL.

    Hopefully only 7-day DL and miss just 1 start. I think Steve Johnson deserves another start anyway.

      I understand that the 7 day DL only applies if he has a concussion.

      Well what do you know you learn something new everyday. Hopefully he only misses 2 starts then if a DL stint in necessary.

    How can it be a 7 day DL? It’s 15 days minimum unless its a concussion.

    Here’s hoping one of the highly touted youngsters becomes a bona fide ace, and soon….
