Chien-Ming Wang to Pawtucket
The Yankees have decided what to do with Chien-Ming Wang — he’ll start Friday for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre at Pawtucket and return to New York on Saturday, at which point a decision will be made yet again.
The company line has been unchanged: they liked what they saw out of his sinker in the bullpen this week at Yankee Stadium and want to see if it can translate into game action.
Johnny Damon is out of the lineup tonight. He’s “banged up” and sore, Joe Girardi said, after crashing into the left field fence last night chasing Adam Jones’ fifth-inning home run.
