For a guy supposedly out until late April, Chien-Ming Wang looked pretty healthy this morning.
The Wanger was out on the field at 9:07 a.m. and played catch with Ron Guidry for 13 minutes. He made 70 throws, most from a distance of 120 feet. And he was throwing from a semi windup and putting some zip on the ball.
“I don’t feel anything,” said Wang, who has a slight tear in his right hamstring. “Yesterday I felt it when I walked. Today, nothing.”
Brian Cashman said the team will be cautious and place Wang on the DL to start the season. But that can be backdated into spring training, so Wang could back earlier than initially expected.
