Veteran pitcher Chien-Ming Wang has agreed to deal a free-agent deal with the Reds, according to the Focus Taiwan News Channel. It’s a minor-league contract with an invitation to major league spring training.
Wang was 1-2 last season with a 7.67 ERA in six starts with the Blue Jays. Wang has been trying to ressurect his career after shoulder surgery in 2009. He didn’t pitch in 2010, started 11 games in 2011 and five in 2012 with the Nationals.
Earlier in his career, in 2006 and 2007, he was the ace for the Yankees, winning 19 games both seasons.
