More News....(Updated 7/14)

*LHP Wei-Chung Wang (Octagon) failed his physical with the Pirates due to an ulnar collateral ligament tear that will require Tommy John surgery; his contract was voided.
***UPDATED 7/14 - Some new info on Wang:  Word is that the $350 K offer was rescinded by the Pirates due to the physical, however the Pirates still wanted to sign him (albeit at a lower price) and give him an opportunity.   The snag?  His agent rejected the offer.  Hmmm, if true, the kid passed on an opportunity to at least have his elbow taken care of by a US orthopedic surgeon.
