They could never get a lead for starter Chien-Ming Wang, who seemed to spend eight innings fielding soft choppers. Wang made nine assists, two shy of the record for a pitcher, and limited the Orioles to seven singles and a walk. Baltimore had only one fly out against Wang, who was making his third start after missing two months with shoulder trouble. (NYT)


Based on earlier thread, I would think Wang's grounder/fly ratio makes him a great prospect. Is this normal for him?

Yep. I have high hopes for him.

Me too. What's strange to me is how strong he has been in the starts since he has returned. Supposedly he had serious rotator cuff tendinitis--possibly even a tear--and yet the same injury that was serious enough to force him from competition for three months has apparently healed sufficiently to allow him to pitch well.

I'm not saying I'm suspicious of Wang's claiming injury, just that it's baffling to me how the shoulder works and repairs itself.

He's a young arm. I'm content to take a better-safe-than-sorry view.

In Wang's last three starts, opponents had made only four outs in the air. Everything else was a ground out or strikeout. Sure enough, the first nine Angels hitters on Wednesday put the ball on the ground. (NYT)


So how good is this guy going to be, given his groundball/fly ratio? Is there anybody who has better ratio?
