Rehabbing Chien-Ming Wang may wait to sign

Dec 14, 2009, 3:51 PM EST

Chien-Ming Wang’s agent told Buster Olney of ESPN.com that the free agent right-hander may choose not to sign for several months despite at least a half-dozen teams expressing interest.
Wang will meet with Dr. James Andrews next month to determine the next step in his recovery from shoulder surgery and may want to show teams that he’s healthy enough to be a legitimate option for the first half of the season before deciding on an offer. Regardless of when he signs Wang is unlikely to get much in the way of guaranteed money, so he’ll ultimately have to be healthy and productive to cash in.

    Would it not be a sweet thing for him to get with fellow countryman Dice-K & Okie.. and come to Boston, and say Sign me!!! Pro-rate my contract from when I am ready to pitch in the Majors
    Every team has pitcher who break down during the year and haveing a former NYY 19game winn in your pocket could be a very very good thing.
