Blue Jays Designate Chien-Ming Wang For Assignment

The Blue Jays announced, via press release, that they have designated right-hander Chien-Ming Wang for assignment in order to clear roster space for lefty Aaron Loup, who is returning from the paternity list.

Wang, 33, was recalled over the weekend to make a start but lasted just three innings and allowed four earned runs. In 27 innings for Toronto this season, he's posted a 7.67 ERA with 4.7 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9. He's been significantly better in 17 Triple-A starts between the Yankees and Jays this season, compiling a 2.72 ERA with 4.5 K/9 and 1.8 BB/9.

As is the case with all players following a DFA, Wang's status can be tracked using MLBTR's new DFA Tracker. Wang joins Edinson Volquez and Edgmer Escalona in DFA limbo as he will now wait to learn what the future holds for him. The Jays will have 10 days to trade, outright or release the Taiwanese righty.
