Bruce Chen Profile

Remember Bruce Chen—the guy who was 13-10 with a 3.83 ERA in 2003 with Baltimore? The Royals signed him to a Minor League deal back in March. The Omaha World Herald is running a nice profile about him called Comeback Starts in Omaha that you might find interesting.

Coming off elbow surgery, he hasn’t pitched in a couple of years until the WBC last month. He says that his fastball is in the mid-80s (yikes), but he never threw hard.

Here’s what Omaha pitching coach Tom Burgmeier says about him: “I liked what I saw in spring training. Left-handed, has a way above-average curveball. Big-league experience helps. He obviously knows what he's doing out there.”

Sounds like he’ll be in the starting rotation in Omaha.
