June 8, 2014

Mind you Pawtucket did not face your garden-variety Triple-A hurler, hence why the information provided to the club’s hitters was a bit more elaborate. In Chien-Ming Wang, we’re talking about a 34-year-old right-hander who once posted back-to-back 19-win seasons for the New York Yankees and has eight years of big-league service time on his résumé.
