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.
