Pirates' Wei-Chung Wang: Outrighted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang was outrighted off the Pirates' 40-man roster Monday.

Wang threw 31 innings for the Athletics and Pirates in 2019, finishing with a fairly good 3.77 ERA. His underlying numbers don't support that figure, though, as he struck out just 14.0 percent of opposing batters while walking 10.9 percent.

Pirates' Wei-Chung Wang: Joins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates announced Tuesday that Wang has joined the major-league team.

Wang was claimed off waivers from the A's last weekend after being designated for assignment. His numbers with Oakland were actually pretty good (3.33 ERA, 1.22 WHIP in 20 appearances), but the peripherals were far less glowing, and he had a lot of trouble with the long ball at Triple-A. The lefty will likely work in mop-up duty for Pittsburgh.

Pirates' Wei-Chung Wang: Claimed by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Saturday and optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Wang made 20 appearances with the Athletics before being designated for assignment, compiling a 3.33 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 16:11 K:BB across 27 innings. The southpaw will likely join the Pirates in September as his new team looks to evaluate him before the offseason.

Athletics' Wei-Chung Wang: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Athletics designated Wang for assignment Thursday.

He'll cede his spot on the 40-man roster to infielder Sheldon Neuse, who was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas ahead of the Athletics' game against the Royals. Before being demoted to Triple-A earlier this month, Wang made 20 relief appearances for the big club this season, posting a 3.33 ERA and 1.22 WHIP across 27 innings.

Athletics' Wei-Chung Wang: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.

Wang will head back to the minors to free up a roster spot for prospect A.J. Puk, who is expected to join the big club ahead of Tuesday's series opener against the Yankees. Across 27 innings with the big club this season, Wang owns a 3.33 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 16:11 K:BB.

Athletics' Wei-Chung Wang: Contract selected by Athletics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang's contract was selected from Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday.

The 27-year-old lefty owns an ugly 11.09 ERA in 18.2 career innings at the highest level but hasn't appeared in the big leagues since 2017. His ERA sits at 3.75 after 24 innings for Las Vegas this season. Fernando Rodney was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Athletics' Wei-Chung Wang: Suffers leg strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang has a minor leg strain and won't participate in Friday's throwing session, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Wang signed a minor-league deal with the Athletics at the start of February but will have to wait to get his first throws in at spring training. The injury doesn't appear overly concerning as the 26-year-old attempts to earn a roster spot with Oakland.

Athletics' Wei-Chung Wang: Latches on with Athletics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang received an invitation to the Athletics' major-league spring training, Melissa Lockard of the Athletic reports.

Wang spent the 2018 season in Korea with the NC Dinos and was previously with the Brewers. The left-hander is still only 26, but struggled over eight appearances in 2017 as a situational lefty, allowing two earned runs on five hits over just 1.1 innings.

Wei-Chung Wang: To head overseas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang will go overseas to play for the NC Dinos of the KBO League in South Korea in 2018, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Wang is expected to leave the Brewers' organization within the coming days, and the club will receive financial compensation for his departure. The left-hander delivered a strong season at Triple-A Colorado Springs in 2017 but wasn't able to make an impact at the major-league level, allowing two runs in 1.1 relief innings over eight appearances.

Brewers' Wei-Chung Wang: Called up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang was promoted by the Brewers on Friday.

Wang rejoins the Brewers after spending most of this season with Triple-A Colorado Springs. During 47 games with the Sky Sox, Wang posted a 2.05 ERA and 1.21 WHIP over 57 innings of action. He made one appearance with the Brewers in late July, and figures to serve in low-leverage situations out of the bullpen as long as he's with the team.

Brewers' Wei-Chung Wang: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs following Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The Brewers need to open a roster spot for Thursday's starter Matt Garza, and Wang was chosen as the roster casualty. He only appeared in one game before being sent back to the minors, allowing a hit without recording an out. He could return later in the year should Milwaukee need another lefty bullpen arm.

Brewers' Wei-Chung Wang: Called to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang had his contract selected by the Brewers on Sunday.

Wang was selected by the Brewers in the 2014 Rule 5 draft and trudged his way through a disastrous 10.90 ERA over 17.1 low-leverage innings in his first season with Milwaukee. The 25-year-old has spent the 2017 campaign in the tough pitching environment of Colorado Springs but has performed admirably, currently holding a 2.09 ERA over 47.1 innings. He'll provide another lefty arm in the Brewers bullpen moving forward.
