We last saw Wang getting shellacked in a July game for the Toronto Blue Jays, in which he couldn’t escape the second inning after allowing six runs on eight hits and a walk. This after he was staked to a 4-0 lead. The Jays designated him for assignment that night and that, we figured, was that. After all, he hadn’t had a full season worth of starts since 2007. He was moderately useful in a handful of starts in 2011. Otherwise it had been a disaster of injury and poor pitching for Wang for several years.
He has to be considered a long shot to make the team. Heck, he’s probably a long shot to get meaningful spring training starts. But I guess we get to see him in a uniform at least a couple more times.
