Chien-Ming Wang signs with Chicago White Sox

Thursday July 17th, 2014

Chien-Ming Wang is making another comeback attempt.

The White Sox signed the Taiwanese right-hander and assigned him to Triple-A affiliate Charlotte, the team announced Thursday.

Wang, 34, made his Major League debut with the Yankees in 2005 and compiled back-to-back 19-win seasons in 2006-07, but has since started only 46 games over five seasons with New York, Washington and Toronto.

Wang has struggled to catch on with an MLB team and has been beset by injuries, including to his foot, hip and shoulder.

He pitched 27 innings over six starts for the Blue Jays in 2013, and posted a 3.70 ERA in 19 starts for Reds Triple A affiliate Louisville this season.

The White Sox opened Thursday in fourth place in the American League West and six and a half games back in the Wild Card race.
