Chien-Ming Wang’s season is finished. He is set to have shoulder surgery this morning. Tyler Kepner reports in the New York Times:
“Missing a year, going through the stuff he was going through when he was here; it just stinks he’s not going to be here,” [CC] Sabathia said. “We really need him. He’s a great pitcher.”
At least, Wang used to be a great pitcher, when he was the No. 1 starter on the playoff teams of 2006 and 2007. Now Wang’s future is unknown, and he may have thrown his last pitch for the Yankees.
Man, what a bad break for Wang, and also the Yankees.
