Last night, after speaking to Chien-Ming Wang’s agent, Alan Nero, Ken Davidoff of Newsday noted that Wang may not sign until April or May. Today, ESPN’s Buster Olney confirms, writing that it’s “possible that [Wang] won’t sign for months.” This is largely a contractual move, as Wang may receive better offers after a few months of rehab, in which he could prove his shoulder’s health. “In short,” states Olney, “the more he shows as he goes through his rehabilitation, and in perhaps throwing for scouts in the spring, the better the offers to him could be.”
In light of this news, the Yankees, who Olney says can possibly resign Wang, will likely have to move on this winter and explore other pitching options that are currently available (e.g., Ben Sheets, Justin Duchscherer, Kelvim Escobar, etc.). They can’t really wait for Wang, not if he’s holding out until May. If the team adds other players and still has payroll space for him at that time, then perhaps a deal will happen, although it seems unlikely.
