Yankees rumors: Chien-Ming Wang throwing for scouts

Free agent right-hander Chien-Ming Wang held a "tryout of sorts" at the New York Yankees minor league complex.

Free agent right-hander Chien-Ming Wang held a "tryout of sorts" at the New York Yankees minor league complex -- during which he threw for Yankee scouts -- according to Andy McCullough of The Star-Ledger.

Wang's agent Alan Chang told reporters -- including Ken Davidoff of The New York Post -- that he's discussing his client with several team. The Yankees are among the clubs Chang has spoken with, but he adds that Wang has yet to make a decision or set up a timetable for a potential signing.

The Yankees were among the teams that watched Wang pitch in the World Baseball Classic for Chinese Taipei. New York and others could consider adding the veteran right-hander in order to bolster their starting pitching depth.

Wang appeared in 10 games -- including five starts -- for the Washington Nationals last season. He was roughed up over this span and his season was limited due to hamstring and hip injuries.

Wang won a combined 38 games for the Yankees from 2006-07, but his career was stalled due injuries. After missing the entire 2010 season, Wang returned to the majors in 2011. Over the past two years, the 32-year-old has maintained an ERA of 4.94 over 21 appearances -- including 16 starts.
