Four or Five teams pursuing Chien-Ming Wang

At least that’s what his agent says.  Among those interested: the Mets, the Dodgers and the Cardinals. But wait, wasn’t Wang supposed to be on the sidelines for a good chunk of the early season due to rehab from injuries?

“Our plan was to get him 100 percent healthy, so there was no risk on
the team’s part,” [agent Alan] Nero said. “And that’s still our plan, and we’re
following it. But we didn’t expect teams to be coming forward with
offers, and that’s what’s happening.”

Despite Nero’s claim that Wang is throwing pain free, it strikes me that anyone who goes after Wang now, as opposed to later, is really taking a chance. I’d at least want to see a Ben Sheets-style throwing session from him before getting serious.
