Wang to have season-ending surgery
Chien-Ming Wang will have arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder capsule on Wednesday under the care of Dr. James Andrews and will miss the remainder of the 2009 season.
The Yankees hurler had a MRI Monday in Birmingham, Ala. and met with Andrews on Tuesday. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that the team has no time frame on how long Wang will need to recover.
“It’s a tough loss for us,” Girardi said. “I feel for him, because he’s been through a lot in the last 14 or 15 months, with the [right] foot injury and now this. Hopefully this will be the end of the surgeries for him and he will have the rest of his career to be healthy.”
