Would Beane send Kennedy to Yanks?

The Yankees best starter is now on the DL.

NEW YORK (AFP) - Taiwan rookie right-handed pitcher Chien-Ming Wang was placed on Major League Baseball's 15-day disabled list here by the New York Yankees with an inflammation of the right shoulder.

The Yankees went 46-40 before the All-Star Game break and were third in the American League East division despite a 200 million-dollar payroll, in part due to injuries to top pitchers such as Wang.

Wang, 25, joins an injured list that includes Kevin Brown, 4-6 with a 5.48 earned-run average, and right-hander Carl Pavano, 4-6 with a 4.77 earned-run average since inking a four-year deal worth nearly 40 million dollars.

Wang has gone 6-3 with a 3.89 earned-run average in 13 games, including 12 starts, since joining the Yankees on April 27. Wang has struck out 31, walked 22 and allowed seven home runs while surrendering 79 hits and 36 earned runs.
