Description: The Blue Jays have called up righthander Chien-Ming Wang to start Saturday against Houston.
Insight: Wang is 1-1 with a 7.13 ERA in five appearances for the Jays this season. His last outing came against Detroit on July 2nd. He lasted just 1 2/3 innings, giving up eight hits and six runs in a no-decision.
 
6/11/2013 10:49:00 PM
Description: In his 2013 debut, Chien-Ming Wang threw 7 1/3 innings and allowed 10 hits and five earned runs for the Blue Jays Tuesday against the White Sox.
Insight: It was Wang's longest outing since June 10, 2008, when he was a member of the New York Yankees. Wang's career has gone downhill since then due to a number of injuries. He's unlikely to carry any fantasy value.
 
6/10/2013 2:19:00 PM
Description: Toronto has signed right-hander Chien-Ming Wang to a contract.
Insight: Wang served as the New York Yankees' ace in 2006 and 2007 and won 19 games in each season, but he hasn't been healthy since 2008, when he tore a ligament in his foot running the bases. A sinker ball pitcher playing on the artificial turf at the Rogers Centre is not guaranteed to be successful.
 
6/7/2013 2:00:00 PM
Description: The Yankees have released right-hander Chien-Ming Wang, who pitched for New York in the first five seasons of his career.
Insight: He's expected to sign with the Toronto Blue Jays. Wang served as New York's ace in 2006 and 2007 and won 19 games in each season, but he hasn't been healthy since 2008, when he tore a ligament in his foot running the bases. He'll have to show us a lot to put him on a fantasy roster.

Insight: Wang served as New York's ace in 2006 and 2007 and won 19 games in each season, but he hasn't been healthy since 2008, when he tore a ligament in his foot running the bases. Since then he has dealt with numerous shoulder injuries.

Description: The Yankees will scout Chien-Ming Wang during the World Baseball Classic. Wang, who pitched for New York for five seasons, will play for Taiwan in the WBC. SOURCE: New York Post
Insight: Wang served as New York's ace in 2006 and 2007 and won 19 games in each season, but he hasn't been healthy since 2008, when he tore a ligament in his foot running the bases. Since then he has dealt with numerous shoulder injuries.
 
7/3/2012 8:45:00 PM
Description: Nationals pitcher Chien-Ming Wang has been placed on the DL with a stained right hip.
Insight: The Wang experiment (he went 2-3 with a 7.61 ERA in seven outings this season) in Washington fizzled out almost as soon as it began. His days of being a productive fantasy contributor appear to be over.
 
6/20/2012 8:18:00 PM
Description: Washington starter Chien-Ming Wang has lost his spot in the Nationals' starting rotation.
Insight: Wang (2-3, 6.10 ERA) looked awful in his start Tuesday against the Rays (3.1 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 3 BBs) and apparently that was all the Nationals coaching staff needed to see before making this move. Wang could move back into the rotation if any of Washington's starters get hurt but even if he does, his low strikeout rate and awful .349 BAA make him a pitcher to avoid in fantasy.
 
6/12/2012 10:12:00 PM
Description: Nationals starter Chien-Ming Wang held Toronto to two runs on four hits in five innings Tuesday. Wang required 95 pitches to get through five innings due to his five walks. He also struck out five.
Insight: Wang improved to 2-2 on the year, but this is his first win since moving back to the starting rotation in place of Ross Detwiler. In three starts, Wang has allowed eight runs on 19 hits in 14 1/3 innings. He's walked 11 and struck out 10. You might want to hold off on starting Wang until he displays some better command of his pitches.
 
5/31/2012 3:09:00 PM
Description: Nationals starter Chien-Ming Wang allowed four runs on seven hits in four innings against the Marlins on Wednesday.
Insight: Wang was making his first start of the season after replacing Ross Detwiler in the Nationals' rotation. Leave him on the free agent list until he proves himself.
 
5/26/2012 8:39:00 PM
Description: Chien-Ming Wang will replace Ross Detwiler in the Nationals' starting rotation.
Insight: Detwiler was scheduled to start Wednesday against the Marlins so now it looks like that's when we'll see Wang make his season debut as a starter. Wang was 4-3 with a 4.04 ERA in 11 starts for the Nationals in 2011. He's available in virtually all fantasy leagues right now so he could be a low-risk, high-reward guy if you're looking for depth in your starting rotation.
 
5/22/2012 7:11:00 PM
Description: Chien-Ming Wang has been activated from the disabled list. Wang missed the season's first month and a half because of a hamstring injury.
Insight: This is one of those rare instances where Wang is actually healthy. He'll be pitching out of the bullpen, so don't count on him to provide you with much fantasy value.
 
5/19/2012 5:17:00 PM
Description: Chien-Ming Wang (hamstring) will pitch out of the bullpen when he comes off the disabled list, Nationals manager Davey Johnson said.
Insight: Ross Detwiler has been fantastic as Washington's No. 5 starter, going 3-2 with a 2.75 ERA in seven starts, so there isn't a place for Wang right now. Those who were holding onto the former Yankees ace can safely let him go.
 
5/3/2012 11:54:00 AM
Description: Chien-Ming Wang (hamstring) will make at least two more minor league rehab starts.
Insight: Wang threw four innings the last time out and he'll try to increase that total in each of the next two starts. We'll have to see how the Nationals handle their rotation when Wang returns, as all five Washington starters are currently excelling. No. 5 starter Ross Detwiler (2-1, 1.64 ERA) remains the most likely candidate to lose his spot.
 
4/23/2012 4:59:00 PM
Description: Chien-Ming Wang (hamstring) threw three innings in an extended spring training game on Monday, according to Dan Kolko of MASNsports.com
Insight: Wang gave up one run on five hits and appears on track to make his next start with in the minors. Ross Detwiler has been excellent as the Nationals' No. 5 starter, going 2-0 with a 0.56 ERA in three starts, but he figures to lose that job when Wang returns.
 
4/18/2012 5:29:00 PM
Description: Nationals manager Davey Johnson said Chien-Ming Wang (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment in five days. Wang is slated to throw three innings after tossing 35 pitches in a simulated game on Wednesday, Amanda Comak of the Washington Times reports.
Insight: Wang's return will bump Ross Detwiler (1-0, 0.90 ERA) out of the rotation. Wang has a 59-29 career record so he might be useful, especially considering that Washington is off to such a hot start. He's a low-risk add.
 
4/5/2012 3:54:00 PM
Description: Chien-Ming Wang (hamstring) will throw off a mound within the next three or four days, the Washington Post reports.
Insight: Wang could be a SP sleeper this season, as the Nationals are expected to be an above average ballclub. However, he has had a difficult time staying on the field in the past four seasons, so don't bank on a full season's worth of starts.
 
3/16/2012 11:46:00 AM
Description: Chien-Ming Wang injured his hamstring Thursday while pitching against his former team, the New York Yankees.
Insight: A hamstring strain shouldn't be a big deal but this is Wang we're talking about, so who knows. Wang has only been healthy enough to make 35 starts the last four seasons so if you draft Wang, expect him to spend as much time on the DL as he will in your starting rotation.

Insight: There was hope that Wang would be available in May. Until he is a SP for an MLB team there is no need to own him.
 
2/17/2011 3:59:00 PM
Description: It does not appear as if Nationals SP Chien-Ming Wang will be in the team's rotation any time soon. SOURCE: Adam Kilgore via Twitter
Insight: Until Wang demonstrated he can stay healthy and will be in the starting rotation he has no fantasy value.
