Marlins' Wei-Yin Chen: Won't be ready for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Chen (elbow) isn't expected to be ready for Opening Day but should join the rotation at some point, Tim Healey of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Chen dealt with elbow issues throughout the 2017 season. He received a PRP injection in late September and was shut down before the end of the year. He has started throwing but isn't expected to be quite ready by the time the season starts. The lefty was effective (3.82 ERA, 3.73 FIP) in the 33 innings he was able to pitch last year, but nagging elbow injuries for pitchers always bring with them the ominous threat of potential Tommy John surgery.

Marlins' Wei-Yin Chen: Cleared to begin throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chen (elbow) has been cleared to start throwing and projects to be in the Marlins' rotation heading into spring training, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Chen dealt with elbow problems throughout the course of the 2017 season which limited him to just nine games split between the rotation and the bullpen. His numbers weren't bad, as he posted a 3.82 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with a 25:9 K:BB, but consistent injury concerns pose question marks for his availability in 2018. The team is confident that he will nail down a spot in the rotation, but it's not a 100 percent certainty that he will be completely healthy by the time Opening Day rolls around, which makes the next few weeks immensely important as he builds up his arm strength.

Marlins' Wei-Yin Chen: Receives PRP injection
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chen received a PRP injection in his elbow Wednesday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

Chen has been plagued by elbow issues all season, limiting him to just 33 innings. He won't throw again this season, and it's possible he'll miss some time next year due to the lingering issue. The Marlins will be patient with Chen as the PRP injection takes effect before determining his next step, but it appears Tommy John surgery is still an option.

Marlins' Wei-Yin Chen: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chen is dealing with elbow issues again and will not pitch again this season, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

Not only will Chen be shut down for this season, he is dealing with another long-term elbow injury and could miss time next year as well. He will see a specialist in the near future to determine both the extent of his latest setback and the road to recovery.

Marlins' Wei-Yin Chen: Returns from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chen (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Monday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Chen will rejoin the big club for the first time since early May after a partially torn UCL derailed his season. The lefty was able to get in three rehab appearances in the minors over the past two weeks prior to his activation, but because he never tossed more than two innings in any of those outings, the Marlins won't turn to him as a rotation option. Instead, Chen is expected to work out of the bullpen the rest of the season, likely taking on low-leverage duties initially before perhaps working his way up the depth chart.
