As the Yanks and the A’s play late into the night, the Yankees have issued an update on injured right-hander Chien-Ming Wang. The erstwhile ace was scheduled to throw tomorrow, but his shoulder has not improved since he shut it down earlier this week. And so the Yanks and Wang will now consult with Dr. James Andrews.
To be clear, Wang isn’t getting checked out by Andrews. He was seen by Dr. David Altchek earlier today, but the Yanks want to consult with Andrews before releasing the results and establishing a rehab plan for Wang. The worst-case scenario is, of course, surgery which would probably knock Wang out for most, if not all, of 2010. It’s amazing to see the cascade effect of one Lisfranc injury and some obviously bad mechanics from Wang.
Anyway, the game continues as the Yanks have put up a four-spot in the fourth. We’ll have more on Wang tomorrow morning.
