Analysis: It's uncertain when he'll pitch, but Marlins manager Don Mattingly said he would likely relieve instead of start this month. Chen has been sidelined since May 1.

Apr. 19 9:53 AM PT10:53 AM MT11:53 AM CT12:53 PM ET12:53 ET16:53 GMT0:53 9:53 AM MST11:53 AM EST12:23 PM VEN20:53 UAE11:53 AM CT-Chen no-hit the Mariners through seven innings before being removed from Tuesday's start after throwing 100 pitches. The Miami lefty, who walked two and hit a batter, still wound up with the win in the Marlins' 5-0 victory.
Analysis: Marlins manager Don Mattingly cited Chen's elbow issues from last season as the reason for his decision, plus the fact that the hurler hadn't thrown more than 86 pitches in either of his first two starts. Chen (2-0, 3.94 ERA) has opened his second season in Miami with two very good starts and one poor one, and will be working on six days rest when he next takes the mound in Philadelphia next Tuesday.

Analysis: That's a far cry from his first start against New York in Queens, where he allowed just one run in six innings.
Apr. 8 9:47 AM PT10:47 AM MT11:47 AM CT12:47 PM ET12:47 ET16:47 GMT0:47 9:47 AM MST11:47 AM EST12:17 PM VEN20:47 UAE11:47 AM CT-Chen was sharp in Friday's season debut, as he held the Mets to one run on seven hits and struck out five over six innings to earn the win in Miami's 7-2 victory.
Analysis: The Marlins are going to need a big season out of their highest-paid pitcher to have any shot at contending, so this performance was clearly a positive sign. Chen gets another meeting with the Mets in his next start, scheduled for Thursday at Marlins Park.
Mar. 26 1:56 PM PT2:56 PM MT3:56 PM CT4:56 PM ET16:56 ET20:56 GMT4:56 1:56 PM MST3:56 PM EST4:26 PM VEN0:56 UAE (+1)3:56 PM CT-The same issue that plagued Chen during his first season with the Miami Marlins continues to trouble him. Chen allowed two more homers in Miami's 3-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday. The solo shots for Yadier Molina and Dexter Fowler made it six homers allowed by the left-hander during spring training.
Analysis: A fly-ball pitcher who surrendered 28 homers in 31 starts during his final year with Baltimore, Chen signed with Miami as a free agent prior to the 2016 season. The hope was the more spacious Marlins Ballpark would turn some of those drives into long outs.
