Crystal Ball: Chien-Ming Wang

New, 52 comments

I'm not enamored of Wang's low strikeout rate, but groundball pitchers can get away with it much more easily than fly ball guys. Wang needs strong defensive infield support to truly thrive, and fortunately he will usually have this with the Yankees. I think he will have a good career as an inning-eating ground ball machine, but when he starts to fade I think it will happen quickly.
