Former New York Yankees hurler Chien-Ming Wang(notes) is recovering from shoulder surgery. His plan was to get back onto a big-league mound a few months into the 2010 season, but he's got "four or five" teams that are really trying to snag him, according to ESPN, and that's forced him to consider moving his timetable up.
All three teams the New York, the St.Louis Cardnals and the Los Angeles Dodgers are searching for a pitcher so Wang could be a pitcher for one of those teams or all of them sign with one sign with the other then the last one even thoight that wouldn't happen most likely. The 29-year-old may just end up signing a deal before Spring Training gets underway.
Wang gets a lot of groundballs so whichever team signs him needs to have some good infielders at work behind him.
Wang could sign before spring training with the New York Mets so two former rivals could become teammates and if you don't know who I'm talking about I'm talking about Jason Bay and Chien-Ming Wang.
Wang is "throwing without pain" and is on target to "make a major-league start sometime in the first two weeks of May.
Stark believes that the Mets could be the most appealing team for Wang as their "starting-pitching options are dwindling with spring training three weeks away."
