Chien-Ming Wang had an MRI at Columbia Presbyterian and was back at the park by the end of the game.
He is headed for the DL with what is being described as a strain with bursitis. But everybody seems to think that he will be back within a month.
The Yankees traditionally fudge the details of injuries. But according to Wang, the pain he felt was far less severe than the shoulder inflammation that put him on the DL for nearly two months in 2005. The doctor he saw this afternoon told him that rest and rehab would take care of his issues in a few weeks.
Do not expect Phil Hughes or Alfredo Aceves to step in as neither is stretched out enough, although the Yankees will need that spot only once (Thursday) before the break. Sergio Mitre has pitched well for Scranton and could be the choice.
