Chien-Ming Wang: Released by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang was released by the Royals on Thursday, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports.

He was designated for assignment on Sept. 17 and the two sides opted to part ways. Wang logged a 4.22 ERA and awful 30:18 K:BB in 53.1 innings out of the Royals' bullpen this season. He has not pitched since being placed on the DL with biceps tendinitis on Aug. 31.

Royals' Chien-Ming Wang: DFA'd by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang (biceps) was designated for assignment by the Royals on Saturday.

Wang struggled for much of the season, posting a 4.22 ERA on the year before hitting the DL in late August with a biceps injury. The Royals activated Jason Vargas from the disabled list Saturday, so the move to DFA Wang comes in response to the need for a spot on the 40-man roster.

Royals' Chien-Ming Wang: Placed on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang was placed on the DL with bicep tendinitis, Joel Goldberg of FoxSports.com reports.

Wang has a lofty 4.22 ERA for the year, but had shown improvement in recent games. Over his last five outings, he allowed just two runs across 11 innings. However, his season-long troubles with walks continued, as he allowed four in that time. Brooks Pounders was recalled from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.

Royals' Chien-Ming Wang: Steady in first season out of bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang has allowed four runs over nine innings pitched in July.

In his first season as a reliever, Wang has posted a 3.73 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. He has five wins but is not heavily used in close games, earning no holds or saves this season.

Royals' Chien-Ming Wang: Notches improbable victory versus White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang (3-0) surrendered two hits over two innings in Saturday's 8-7 victory over the White Sox. He struck out two.

A victory was likely the last thing on the 36-year-old's mind when he entered the game to start the eighth, as the White Sox held a seeming secure 7-1 lead at the time. However, Wang was rewarded for his solid work with the victory after the Royals rallied with seven runs in the bottom of the ninth. It was only the third two-inning appearance of the season for Wang, who's now turned in five consecutive scoreless efforts.

Royals' Chien-Ming Wang: Records win in comeback victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang pitched a scoreless inning, striking out two en route to the win in Tuesday's comeback victory over the Nationals.

After giving up earned runs in three consecutive appearances, Wang has settled down considerably, not allowing a hit in his past three. He needed just 12 pitches to get through the inning before the Royals bats woke up against Jonathan Papelbon to give Wang his first MLB win since June 16, 2013-some 1,052 days. The 36-year-old has done an admirable job working in the back-end of the Royals' bullpen.

Royals' Chien-Ming Wang: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang was added to the Royals' 40-man roster on Sunday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Count the soon-to-be 36-year-old as one of the surprise inclusions on Opening Day rosters, as his days in the majors appeared to be over after he languished in the minors in two organizations a season ago, posting a 6.10 ERA over 62 innings at Triple-A Gwinnett and a 5.69 ERA over 68 innings at Triple-A Tacoma. However, the soft-tossing right-hander made the most of his non-roster invite to Royals spring training, producing a 2.40 ERA and 9:2 K:BB over 15 innings. He'll likely serve as the long man out of the Royals' bullpen to open the season.

Royals' Chien-Ming Wang: Could win bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang could be the leading candidate for a final spot in the bullpen, MLB.com reports.

Wang has given up just one run in six innings with five strikeouts and one walk this spring. He's competing against B Brian Flynn, Brian Duensing, Peter Moylan, John Lannan, David Huff and Ross Ohlendor for the final spot with no clear leader.

Royals' Chien-Ming Wang: Signs minor league deal with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wang signed a minor league contract with the Royals on Thursday, Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reports.

Despite bouncing around the Braves and Mariners organizations last season, Wang hasn't pitched at the major league level since 2013 when he was a member of the Blue Jays. He'll join the Royals on a minor league deal but it has not been announced whether he'll receive an invite to major league spring training.
