New, 3 comments

The Yankees have decided to non-tender starting pitcher Chien-Ming Wang, according to Yankees.com. Wang, a two-time 19-game winner, had shoulder surgery in June last season and isn't expected to be ready until midseason 2010. 

Wang was very ineffective with the Yankees in '09, posting a 9.64 ERA before being shut down.

His agent, Alan Nero, says Wang will be ready to go by May.

"He is way ahead of schedule," Nero said. "He started his throwing program on Dec. 1 and is under the supervision of Dr. James Andrews with his physical therapy. I'm very optimistic that he will be in the best shape of his life."

With that said, it will be interesting to see who pursues to the pitcher. The Rockies and Dodgers are possibilities for his services, considering their attentions to add another starting pitcher.

After missing out on Brad Penny, the Giants could also pursue his services. The Mariners have been inquiring about all sorts of players, and Wang could also be an option in Seattle.
