Here’s an update on Chien-Ming Wang:
When he got the second MRI on Tuesday, it revealed a possible rotator-cuff tear. The question is whether it’s a new injury or scar tissue from the operation he had back in 2000.
Because Dr. James Andrews did that surgery, he will examine Wang on Tuesday and figure it all out. If Wang does have a new tear, he’ll be out the rest of this season and part of 2010. Wang, as you might expect, is nervous about what Andrews might find.
If Wang does need surgery, the Yankees could non-tender him in December rather than have him rehab on their dime.
So we should find out more on Tuesday. Baseball-wise, It has been a rough 13 months for CMW, that’s for sure.
