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.
â€œIâ€™m happy itâ€™s over,â€ Wang told Taiwanese journalists outside the hotel. â€œWhatever is the result, I wonâ€™t be upset. Iâ€™m excited about the season starting.â€
