Perhaps PECOTA was on to something with Chien Ming Wang?
The YES radar gun had him sitting at 89 with his fastball. We'd like to take a look at the Pitch f/x data before crying out injury, but at this point he isn't fooling anyone and his mechanics seem out of wack. Maybe he is rusty after missing the second half of last year? Maybe he has some kind of post-Spring Training dead arm that many pitchers go through?
Lets cut out the Peter Abraham act - we're sick of making excuses. Chien Ming Wang has an ERA over 9 in his last 8 starts (thanks to River Ave. Blues' Twitter for pointing that one out). It might be time to give Phil Hughes a shot.
