Bruce Chen is looking to return to form after only three days rest. The veteran lefty was pulled after a terrible outing against the Cardinals on Saturday, giving up six runs and seven hits on only 40 pitches. Ned Yost elected to push back starter Vin Mazzaro and give Chen the start Wednesday to try and regain his form (quote courtesy of MLB.com)
"I didn't pitch well at all," Chen said of his last start. "I wasn't commanding my pitches. I didn't make my pitches and I got hit."
