Here’s a little positive Yankees news for a change.
According to Brian Cashman, Chien-Ming Wang is scheduled for his final bullpen session in Tampa today. His right foot has been feeling good and he’s throwing normally off the mound.
Once he gets checked out by a doctor in New York, he will be free to return to Taiwan. He has been in Tampa all month rehabbing.
Wang plans to spend a two months in Taiwan visiting with his family then will travel to Arizona in January to work out and start throwing with his trainers there.
Many people around the Yankee believe the turning point of the season was when Wang was injured in June. Losing their best starter was a hurdle that could not be overcome.
