News: Chen agreed to a minor league deal with the Indians on Monday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.
Impact: Chen made seven starts for the Royals in 2014 and ended up on the mound in six other appearances. Finishing the year with an ERA of 7.45 on 48.1 innings pitched, the 37-year-old will likely struggle to see time in the majors during the 2015 campaign.
