Chien-Ming Wang hurt

Wang pulled up lame running the bases. Looked like he may have reaggravated the ankle that was bothering him a few weeks ago.

I think I heard (either TV or radio, I forget) that he'll miss the next start but beyond that will depend on what they find when they take a good look at him

Thanks for the news - I just set my lineup for next week and took Wang out. Hopefully he'll just miss the one start and not have to go on the DL.

I think the Sportsline summary of the injury made it sound more definitive than it is. They said they got their info from the NY Times, which just talked about the similarity of the injury, but was written yesterday before today's MRI was performed (don't know if that's been done yet, and if so, when the results will be announced).

But here's the NY Times story (or at least part thereof) that the Sportsline blurb is based on....
The Yankees called the injury a sprained right foot, and they will hope for the best until Wang has a magnetic resonance imaging test in New York on Monday. But the early signs are grim.

The injury is to the top of Wang’s foot, the same general area that reliever Brian Bruney injured when he tripped while covering first base in April. Bruney was found to have a Lisfranc injury and is expected to miss a minimum of three months.

Wang has symptoms of the same injury, including swelling and the inability to bear weight on the foot; he left Minute Maid Park on crutches, in a soft cast. Bruney’s injury was in the middle of the foot, and Wang’s is believed to be in the webbing of his toes, between his big toe and second toe.

“I feel sore,” Wang said in a statement to the Yankees’ media relations director, Jason Zillo. “The doctor says I have to go to get an M.R.I. tomorrow. Of course I’m disappointed.”


If Wang is out for the year, the Yankees are done for the season. Their best-case scenario would become 3rd in the division.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Wang is going to miss some serious time:

This is the statement the Yankees just released about Chien-Ming Wang, who injured his foot in Sunday's game in Houston:

RHP Chien-Ming Wang was examined today at New York Presbyterian Hospital Columbia Medical Center by Yankees Team Physician, Dr. Stuart Hershon and Dr. Jason Greisberg, Foot and Ankle Specialist.

Imaging studies revealed a mid-foot sprain of the Lisfranc ligament of the right foot and a partial tear of the peroneal longus tendon of the right foot.

Wang will be on crutches and wear a protective boot for a minimum of six weeks.

This is devastating news for the Yankees, who could be without their ace pitcher for the remainder of the season and now are sure to be in the market for a starting pitcher at the July 31 trade deadline.

Yeah, this is disastrous for the Yanks

UPDATE, 2:52 p.m.: This pretty much worst-case scenario for the Yankees. If Wang is not out for the season, he is out until at least September. Their options are to try and make up 18 or so starts internally or make a trade.

You have to assume he is out for the season. Six weeks in a boot means no playing catch, no conditioning. Even if he is fully healed by that point, it will take a while to get back in pitching shape.
