Along with the news of third baseman Manny Machado electing to undergo offseason knee surgery, the Orioles announced that starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen recently underwent a minor procedure on his right knee.

The left-hander had small bone spurs removed in a surgery performed by Dr. Richard Steadman of the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colo. last week. Chen is expected to make a full recovery to be ready by the start of spring training, according to the Orioles.

Chen was 7-7 with a 4.07 ERA in 23 starts this season despite missing almost two months due to a strained oblique injury.
