Yankees May Let Chien-Ming Wang Leave

The Yankees "will be very cautious" with pitcher Chien-Ming Wang, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.  The Yankees always preferred to go year-to-year with Wang, so this is nothing new.  Wang is certain to be non-tendered, but the Yankees may be reluctant to do any kind of deal.  From Sherman:

I am getting a strong vibe from Yankee officials that the intention is to non-tender Wang and, perhaps, not even offer him a small base with incentives to return.

Wang, 30 in March, had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his shoulder capsule back in July.  He hopes to throw a rehab game by April or May.
