Wang goes on DL

Wang is the perfect example of someone who is good in real life and not fantastic in fantasy.

He would be an ok 5th starter in for a fantasy team where as in real life he is an excellent number 2.

The problem is entirely found in his k rate. The fact that he has so many balls put in play means that his ERA is pretty much entirely based on luck.

He's better than people want to give him credit for. People act like he is going to have a down year. I still wouldn't draft him where he is being drafted.

It's not that Wang's worthless. He's just not worth taking where he typically goes (ADP 131 in Yahoo leagues). That's just after guys like Bedard and Harden and right before guys like Capuano and Hill. No way you take Wang there, but if you don't someone else in your league will probably take him. Well, maybe not in a really smart league (especially with the DL news). Wang gets you some wins - that'll be for sure. Last year his ERA seemed unusually low considering his BAA. That suggests that Wang is more likely a mid-4's ERA guy. So I see him for mediocre ERA/WHIP, bad K's, but decent win total (15 wins or so). Quality rotations, in real life, need guys like Wang, but doesn't look so great for fantasy. Depending on who's left in a draft, that might be the best option left - but even then I'd go with a high-risk/high-reward guy.

Yahoo has players on the DL now. Did the Yankees put Wang on the DL or not?
