The Cleveland Indians will let SP Bruce Chen compete for a spot in the rotation. If he is unable to secure a starting job the team will also look at him as a relief pitcher.
Fantasy Tip: Chen seemingly has been around forever, and the past few seasons he has been forgotten about on draft day in AL-only fantasy leagues. However, he seems to re-emerge as a useful option from time to time when he gets on a roll, and he just isn't going away. Don't be surprised in May or June if you're looking for a pitcher on the waiver wire and are tempted to add Chen again.
