Bruce Chen Headed To The Disabled List

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.


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.
