      Wei-Yin Chen: Continuing career in Japan

      The Chiba Lotte Marines of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball announced Monday that Wei-Yin Chen signed a contract with the team.Chen's time in MLB looks to be over after he posted a 6.59 ERA and 1.54 WHIP over 45 relief appearances with the Marlins in 2019 and then failed to win a spot on Seattle's Opening Day roster during summer camp. The 35-year-old southpaw proved to be a massive disappointment after signing a five-year, $80 million contract with Miami in January 2016, but he turned in four solid seasons as a member of Baltimore's rotation prior to landing the massive deal.

      Wei-Yin Chen: Cut loose by Mariners

      The Mariners released Wei-Yin Chen on Saturday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.Chen posted a solid two-inning outing all the way back in late February, but even a likely six-man rotation to open the season apparently won't do enough to keep him in uniform with the club when the regular season opens. Chen tossed 68.1 relief innings to poor results with the Marlins last year and may have a tough time finding a home for the start of 2020.

      Mariners' Wei-Yin Chen: Strong in first spring outing

      Wei-Yin Chen fired two scoreless innings in a Cactus League win over the Reds on Wednesday, allowing two hits and recording no walks or strikeouts.Chen arrived in late January on a minor-league contract and remains an option for the back end of the starting rotation, although he'll likely have to outperform fellow veteran Kendall Graveman to secure a spot. Chen could certainly also fill a multi-inning role out of the bullpen, where he operated exclusively for the Marlins last season and generated a career-worst 6.59 ERA and 1.54 WHIP across 45 appearances.

      Marlins' Wei-Yin Chen: Designated for assigment

      Wei-Yin Chen was designated for assignment by the Miami Marlins on Wednesday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.This was a pretty big statement by the Marlins, as they paid Chen $22 million to go away so that they could protect one more prospect from the Rule 5 draft. He had a 6.59 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 63 strikeouts in 68.1 innings last season. His MLB career is likely over.

      Marlins' Wei-Yin Chen: Effective in long relief

      Wei-Yin Chen gave up a hit and a walk while striking out three over two scoreless innings of relief in the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Mets.The left-hander continues to be used in low-leverage spots -- the Miami Marlins were down 6-2 when he entered Monday's matinee -- but Chen has actually been effective recently in that role, posting a 2.25 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 13:2 K:BB through 12 innings over his last seven appearances. The 34-year-old's overall numbers on the year are still bleak, however, and his lack of fantasy upside should keep him far away from most rosters.

      Marlins' Wei-Yin Chen: Showing improvement in June

      Wei-Yin Chen has posted a 4.50 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB through 12 innings of relief in June, recording two holds in nine appearances.It may not seem like much, but those numbers are a huge improvement for the veteran lefty on his first two months of the season as he transitions to a bullpen role. Chen is the highest-paid Marlin left on the roster -- he's earning $20 million this year and has another two seasons and $38 million left on his deal afterwards -- so if he can continue to find some success as a middle reliever or setup man, the team might just be able to find a taker for him by the trade deadline.

      Marlins' Wei-Yin Chen: Adapting to bullpen role

      Wei-Yin Chen gave up a hit and a walk over two scoreless innings of relief while striking out one in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.While the southpaw's 9.69 ERA and 2.08 WHIP aren't going to attract much trade interest, Chen is showing signs of growing comfortable in a relief role, tossing six scoreless innings over his last four appearances with a 5:1 K:BB. The Miami Marlins would love to shed his contract, but he'll need a longer run of success in long relief before that's got a chance of happening.
