Breaking news: Surgery for Wang

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Jul 28, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Chien-Ming Wang needs season-ending shoulder surgery It’ll be tomorrow morning

More to come.

UPDATE, 10:49 p.m.: Wang needs a tear in his capsule repaired, apparently. The capsule is the soft-tissue membrane. Typically, the capsule is tightened in surgery.

The Yankees either don’t know or aren’t saying how long Wang will be out. But it will be for the rest of this season and quite likely some of next season as well. This will be Wang’s second shoulder surgery in eight years.

The surgery will be performed by Dr. James Andrews tomorrow morning.
