Yankees sign Wang to minor league deal
3/23/2013 (Updated 5:00:14 PM)BRONX -- The New York Yankees continue to make moves in the offseason, adding a familiar face to their pitching staff.
The team announced Saturday that it has agreed to terms with RHP Chien-Ming Wang on a minor league deal. Wang pitched for the Bronx Bombers from 2005-09, amassing a 55-26 record with a 4.16 ERA. He was the anchor of the Yanks' pitching staff in '06 and '07 going 19-6 and 19-7 respectively.
Since leaving New York after the 2009 campaign, his career has been marred by injuries as a member of the Washington Nationals. The, now, 32-year-old right hander missed the entire 2010 season while recovering from shoulder surgery. In 21 games with the Nats over the last two years, he registered a 6-6 record with a 4.94 ERA.
Wang impressed at the World Baseball Classic, leading Chinese Taipei past Australia in the opening rounds, and then throwing six scoreless innings against Japan, despite his team losing 4-3.
