Late Monday afternoon before the Royals and Yankees were set to face off in New York City, the Royals announced Bruce Chen has been placed on the disabled list. I first saw mention of the news via Bob Dutton’s twitter.â†µ
Chen is 4-1 this season for the Royals with a 3.59 ERA. In a corresponding move, Kansas City has called up Vin Mazzaro from AAA Omaha. Mazzaro will be making fir first career start in a Royals uniform on Wednesday evening. Last season with the Athletics, Mazzaro was 6-8 with a 4.27 ERA. He had a WHIP of 1.45 and a Strikeout-to-walk ratio of 1.58.
