Yankees reportedly interesting in bringing back pitcher Chien-Ming Wang

Right-handed starting pitcher Chien-Ming Wang's six shutout-inning performance for the Chinese Taipei national team in Friday's World Baseball Classic game has reportedly caught the eye of MLB teams.

Six teams are interested in Wang, including the Yankees, with whom he enjoyed the best seasons of his career, according to CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman.

Wang, a free agent who has struggled to recover from 2009 shoulder surgery, pitched sparingly for the Washington Nationals over the last two seasons. He posted a 5.51 ERA over 80 minor-league innings and a 6.68 ERA over 32.1 major-league innings in 2012.

With the Yankees, Wang posted back-to-back 19-win seasons with ERAs of 3.63 and 3.70 in 2006 and 2007, respectively. He finished as the runner-up for the Cy Young award in '06, using a sharp sinker to become one of the league's best groundball pitchers.

He is one of just four Taiwanese players ever to reach MLB.
