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.
