Orioles activate LHP Chen from DL, recall Stinson
Chen was slated to start Wednesday night's game against the Texas Rangers.
The Orioles also recalled right-hander Josh Stinson from Triple-A Norfolk to fill the role of long reliever.
Manager Buck Showalter said, "I don't think anybody can predict how Wei-Yin's going to feel physically, and we want to make sure we're covered there."
Stinson pitched in one game with Baltimore earlier this season.
Chen will be making his first start since May 12. He's 3-3 with a 3.04 ERA in eight starts.
