by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Chen has given up 15 earned runs on 21 hits in his last 13 innings.

Bruce Chen falls apart in fifth in loss to Indians
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals left-hander Bruce Chen was fine for four innings Thursday in Cleveland before a collapse that resulted in defeat.

Struggles the second time around in a lineup continued to plague Chen as his earned run average was elevated to 7.45 on the season. He retired the first 12 batters he faced before the first five reached base in the fifth.

Chen never made it through that inning as he was stung by a single by David Murphy and double by Asdrubal Cabrera, both of which drove in two runs. He will have a chance to redeem himself next Wednesday against Toronto.

It's a normal day of rest for Perez. He'll get rest after a night game Wednesday. Brett Hayes will get the start behind the plate. Perez has struggled to open the year, hitting just .213 over 75 at-bats.

Tim Collins to join Triple-A Omaha Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Tim Collins will join Triple-A Omaha Friday to begin his rehab assignment, MLB.com reports.

"He's going to need at least two [appearances] and we'll go from there," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "As soon as he's throwing the ball good again . … But we need to see that, we need to check his arm and make sure it's strong and durable and ready to go. We need to make sure he's commanding his fastball, his curveball and his changeup."

Collins pitched in just two games this season before going on the disabled list with a flexor strain.
