Chen (elbow) played catch Wednesday for the first time since landing on the disabled list July 25 and continues to target a September return, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran lefty tossed 25 pitches from a distance of 60 feet -- his first baseball activity since receiving a cortisone shot in the ailing elbow. He's expected to throw again on Friday while taking things slowly in his rehab efforts. Chen has compiled a 4.99 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 19 starts for the Marlins this season over 110 innings pitched.

Chen (elbow) received a cortisone shot in his sprained left elbow but is yet to begin throwing. The team remains optimistic that he will be available to contribute in September.

EDGE Analysis

Chen has been limited to strengthening exercises since being placed on the disabled list retroactive to July 21. Manager Don Mattingly expects that Chen will begin to throwing the near future but a firm rehab timeline is not set. Meanwhile, the team may be searching for more depth in the rotation after the newly acquired Colin Rea joined Chen on the DL with an elbow injury of his own.

Chen is suffering from a sprained left elbow and will go on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to July 21, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The team will recall Jarred Cosart to start Monday's game in Chen's place, but the team certainly hopes the issue won't cost him too long or develop into something worse. The earliest the southpaw can return comes August 6, but the team should establish a firmer timetable as Chen begins the rehab process.

Chen (5-4) gave up four runs on 11 hits over 5.1 innings Wednesday's loss against the Phillies. He struck out five without a walk.

EDGE Analysis

Nine of the 11 hits were singles, which is why Chen was able to limit the damage reasonably well, all things being equal. Unfortunately, he's given up four or more runs on nine separate occasions among 19 starts, and six of those times have come in his last eight appearances. The long ball's been the biggest problem -- he's allowed 20 of them -- but mostly this has been a season of Chen's birds coming home to roost, as he'd outpitched his peripherals in the last two seasons. No longer.

Chen (5-3) allowed four runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five over six innings, but received no decision Friday at the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Chen was in line for a potential victory after the Marlins scored three runs in the top of the seventh to give him a 5-4 lead, but the bullpen was unable to make it hold up. He's now allowed at least four earned runs in five of his last seven starts to raise his ERA to 4.90. He'll make his next start Wednesday at the Phillies.

Chen will start the Marlins' first game after the All-Star break Friday in St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Following Chen, the Marlins will turn to Tom Koehler and Adam Conley, with Jose Fernandez's next start to-be-determined after he made an appearance in Tuesday's All-Star Game. Chen has posted a disappointing 4.83 ERA in his first season as a member of the Marlins.

Chen (5-3) threw seven innings, allowing one run, three hits and a walk while striking out five in Tuesday's victory over the Mets

EDGE Analysis

Chen tossed his best game of the season, outdueling Mets' starter Steven Matz, to pick up just his second win in his last 10 starts. The lefty's lone mistake came in the bottom of the fourth when he allowed a solo homer to Yoenis Cespedes. The first-year Marlin will head into the break with a career-high 4.83 ERA.

Chen (4-3) allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out two over 5.1 innings to take the loss Thursday at the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Chen had an early three-run lead, but gave up a pair of runs in both the third and sixth innings to saddle him with his third loss of the season. He's now allowed at least four earned runs in four of his last five starts to raise his ERA to 5.11 on the year. He'll make his next start Tuesday at the Mets.

Chen held the Cubs to just two runs on five hits while striking out seven over seven innings Thursday. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Chen and starter Jon Lester went pitch for pitch in this one, but the Marlins took the lead late with both starters out of the game. Generally, however, Chen's been pretty awful this year -- he'd allowed 15 runs in his prior three starts and owns a 5.00 ERA even after this outing. We'll need to see him string a few successful starts together before he can be considered trustworthy for fantasy purposes.
