VIERA, Fla. — It was a familiar sight for the Yankees, seeing Chien-Ming Wang’s sinker leading to a metronome of ground balls and swings and misses. Unfortunately for Wang, he provided another familiar sight on Thursday afternoon, when he pitched against his former team in a Washington Nationals uniform.
This sight was a painful one: Wang limping off a baseball diamond.
One out into the third inning at Space Coast Stadium, in what was shaping up as another solid spring outing for Wang, he fielded a Russell Martin dribbler to the infield’s right side. But Wang stumbled several steps before stepping on first and then tumbled to the ground, sustaining what the Nationals said was a strained right hamstring.
