ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -The New York Yankees activated right-hander Chien-Ming Wang from the 15-day disabled list to start Tuesday night's game against Tampa Bay.
Wang, who won 19 games last season, had been out since March 23, when he hurt his right hamstring while running. He pitched in two minor league games while rehabbing, including a five-inning outing last Thursday for Class-A Tampa.
``Physically, he's fine,'' Yankees manager Joe Torre said. ``They've said all his stuff has been good.''
The Yankees optioned outfielder Kevin Thompson to Triple-A Scranton.
New York pitcher Mike Mussina, on the DL with a strained left hamstring, threw 50 pitches off a bullpen mound and is scheduled to make a minor league rehab start Friday for Double-A Trenton at Harrisburg.
``The leg is good,'' Mussina said. ``I think it will be fine.''
If all goes well, he could pitch against Texas on May 2 or 3.
