Look out Trenton, here comes Wang, maybe

There are rumors flying around that Chien-Ming Wang may be headed to either Trenton or Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to make a start as he works his way back from hip and foot injuries to try and turn around his season.

This article, found at, has all the details.

Because of the Thunder's short rotation and Jose Molina's upcoming DL stint, Trenton may make perfect sense for last year's 19-game winner to rehab.

Molina going on the shelf will more than likely force the Yankees to call up either Chris Stewart or Kevin Cash (ewww), meaning P.J. Pilittere will be transferred back to SWB's roster, opening a spot on Trenton's roster for a fifth starter.

That's where Wang comes in. The only thing stopping him, I think, would be the fact that both Alan Horne and Ryan Pope would be ready to go on Tuesday, but if the Yankees come a'callin ... you'd better believe Tony Franklin will answer.

I won't be covering on Tuesday, but rest assured the Trentonian will have all the details.
