Chien-Ming Wang’s arbitration hearing has finished. It was held at a hotel in St. Petersburg.

A three-person panel heard the cases presented by the Yankees and agent Alan Nero. Brian Cashman and Jean Afterman represented the Yankees.

Wang will learn today whether he will be paid $4 million or $4.6 million this season. The hearing was the first for the Yankees since they beat Mariano Rivera out of $2 million in 2000.

“I’m happy it’s over,” Wang told Taiwanese journalists outside the hotel. “Whatever is the result, I won’t be upset. I’m excited about the season starting.”
