Kansas City Royals cut LHP Bruce Chen

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Royals designated left-hander Bruce Chen for assignment Friday after six seasons with the team.

The move came one day after he gave up six runs in the 10th inning of an 11-5 loss to Minnesota.

The 37-year-old Chen is 2-4 with a 7.45 ERA in 13 games this season. He was in the Royals' rotation when the season began, but went on the 60-day disabled list with a back injury.
