Royals designate Bruce Chen for assignment

Needs to go to Miami and complete the circuit.

The Royals have designated pitcher Bruce Chen for assignment and recalled reliever Louis Coleman from Triple-A Omaha, per the team’s Twitter account.

Chen allowed six runs in an inning of work in the Royals’ 10-inning, 11-5 loss to the Twins on Thursday. The 37-year-old lefty has had a miserable season, sporting a 7.45 ERA with a 36/16 K/BB ratio in 48 1/3 innings. Chen has been with the Royals since 2009.

Hopefully he can now resume his pursuit of Octavio Dotel, which his unfortunate lengthy stint in KC put in serious jeopardy.
