Wei-Yin Chen receives positive report months after having bone spurs removed

Orioles lefty Wei-Yin Chen, who had bone spurs removed from his right knee in October, had a positive examination on Thursday, giving the club hope that he’ll be able to start spring training without any problem. There had been a concern that Chen was not recovering as quickly as he and the club had hoped.

But Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Chen met with Dr. Richard Steadman, who performed the surgery, and the doctor gave Chen a positive report. Showalter said the belief is that Chen should be good to go when spring training begins next month.

Chen, 28, was 7-7 with a 4.07 ERA in 23 starts for the Orioles in 2013.
