I missed you, Wei-Yin Chen. I really, really missed you.
On Wednesday, the Orioles activated their best starter who threw seven solid innings of one-run ball in his first start since May 12. Chen shut down the Rangers offense with a mix of low-90s fastballs, a changeup in the low 80s and hard cutting slider.
He focused on the lower third of the strikezone and managed to limit the Rangers to just three base hits.
After the game, he tweeted this:

It translates to: “I am very happy, finally returned to the Major Leagues.”
I’m very happy he’s back.
