Wei-Ying Chen (Baltimore) was placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday. From an AP report posted at ESPN:
"It's one of those things that's tough to handicap the severity of it," Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. "There's three grades, and I think his was in the middle. If you look at the history of these things, it gives you the idea that it is a little later than sooner. We'll take whatever comes our way."
Scouts from at least six MLB teams -- Yankees, Rangers, Mariners, Giants, Rays, A's -- were at Tuesday night's Rakuten-Yokohama game at Yokohama Stadium.
