Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said that Wang has agreed to work out at the team’s minor league complex as New York contemplates signing the 32-year-old hurler, according to the New York Daily News. Wang’s agent, Alan Nero, told The Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo that the Red Sox have not indicated any interest in the right-hander, though.
Wang, who spent five seasons with the Yankees from 2005 to 2009, pitched 12 scoreless innings in the World Baseball Classic for Chinese Taipei. He struggled in 10 games (five starts) with the Nationals in 2012, though, going 2-3 with a 6.68 ERA.
Wang won 19 games with the Yankees in both 2006 and 2007. He finished second in AL Cy Young voting in ’06, and he went 55-26 with a 4.16 ERA during his five seasons in New York before injuries really started to take their toll.
