Wang to be in Yankees’ bullpen tonight

Mark Feinsand reports that the Yankees – and Chien-Ming Wanghave had a change of plans after Joba Chamberlain went down in the first inning last night.

According to Feinsand’s source, Wang, who was headed to Pawtucket, R.I., for a rehab start, was ordered to turn around and head back to New York.  He will be in the bullpen tonight as the long reliever.

The Yankees had to pitch 8 1/3 innings out of the bullpen last night, and Alfredo Aceves has thrown 5 1/3 innings the last two games.  However, if A.J. Burnett gives the Yankees depth tonight, the staff should be fine, as Brian Bruney didn’t pitch last night.
