Taipei, Dec. 8 (CNA) Taiwanese pitcher Chien-Ming Wang (王建民) said Tuesday that he hopes to continue his professional career in the United States next year after ending the 2015 season in Triple-A with the Seattle Mariners.
“I will pitch as long as I can,” said Wang, who returned to Taiwan Sunday.
He said his agent will help him deal with the matter of finding a new team in the U.S.
The 35-year-old right-hander was a star player with the New York Yankees from 2005 to 2008, going 54-20 with a 3.79 ERA, but he suffered a foot injury while running the bases in Houston in a game against the Astros, which led to a slide in his career. [FULL STORY]
