Torre sings praises of mending Wang

|
WASHINGTON -- Dodgers manager Joe Torre is well aware of what Chien-Ming Wang can offer when he's healthy. Torre managed Wang when the right-hander won a combined 38 games in 2006-07 with the Yankees.

"He is capable of trust. That is probably the most important thing," Torre said. "He will go out there and do something very quickly in a very reasonable number of pitchers. He sort of makes you hit the ball. He is not a strikeout guy. You'll hit the ball early in the count, so he really doesn't take long to do what he does. He has a great demeanor. He is very responsible. You want him on your side."

Wang, recovering from right shoulder surgery, is scheduled to start a Minor League rehab assignment sometime in June and is expected to join the Major League club soon thereafter.
