Wang called back

Although Chien-Ming Wang was slated to pitch a minor league game in Pawtucket, R.I., tonight, word is that the righthander was called back to New York last night after Joba Chamberlain was injured. It’s possible that the Yankees simply wanted Wang on hand in case they ended up having to use too many relievers, and it’s certainly still possible that he’ll just turn around and go back to Triple-A anyway. All the same, it’s interesting that the plan was (at least temporarily) aborted.

I’ve got an email into Brian Cashman for more info. At the very least, we’ll have an update from the Stadium later this afternoon.

UPDATE: Always-excellent Mark Feinsand of the Daily News is reporting Wang will be in the bullpen tonight as a long reliever. What his schedule will be after that hasn’t been determined yet.
