According to multiple news sources, Yankee starter Chien-Ming Wang threw off the mound for the first time since injuring his foot while running the bases in Houston last season.

Wang was able to comfortably throw twenty seven pitches, as pitching coach Dave Eiland looked on:

"He's full go for spring training," Yankees pitching coach Dave Eiland said. "He felt strong. He really looked good. A good day for him."

Wang will join a new-look Yankee rotation this spring, as the Yankees rebuilt through free agency after failing to make the playoffs last season.
