Chien-Ming Wang To Sign With Blue Jays

Chien-Ming Wang is set to sign with the Blue Jays, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). Wang is expected to start for the Jays on Tuesday of next week.

Wang, 33, posted a 2.33 ERA with 3.9 K/9 and 1.6 BB/9 in 58 innings for the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate this season, allowing just two homers along the way. He also fired 12 scoreless frames in this year's World Baseball Classic.

Wang neglected to exercise multiple opt-out clauses in his contract prior to this date, stating that he would only ask for his release from the Yankees if a Major League opportunity presented itself elsewhere. The Taiwanese sinker artist is represented by Octagon and has a 4.26 ERA in 765 1/3 innings between the Yankees and Nationals.
