Injured Wang suffers setback

NEW York Yankees pitcher Wang Chien-ming has suffered a setback in his recovery from a shoulder injury delaying his rehabilitation, the team said on Monday.

The Chinese Taipei right-hander felt tenderness in his biceps while playing catch before Monday's game against the Baltimore Orioles and will not throw again until at least Friday, New York manager Joe Girardi said. "Any time you're dealing with a (rotator) cuff issue and shoulder tendinitis - or whatever you want to describe it as - there's concern," Girardi said. The 29-year-old had struggled to start the season, posting a 1-6 record with a 9.64 earned run average. He appeared to be regaining form when he suddenly felt tightness in his right shoulder while pitching on July 4, and went on the disabled list the next day.
