Chien-Ming Wang will start Tuesday for Triple-A Scranton against Charlotte. He is cleared for 100 pitches.
If he pitches well, Wang could earn his return to the majors. Joe Girardi indicated that he is close.
Funny story from Johnny Damon after the game. Johnny said that his son Jackson must be pleased with the home run because when he had the first pick in a fantasy league, he selected his dad.
“First? He could have had me in the 10th round,” Damon said. “I asked him what he was thinking.”
Johnny has six jacks in the last 10 games. Maybe Jackson knew what he was doing all along. His pop is in a contract year, after all.
