This is where I started. I feel great." TAMPA, Fla. The New York Yankees have brought back a familiar face, signing pitcher Chien-Ming Wang to a minor league contract. Wang, who will turn 33 on March 31, won 46 games for the Yankees from 2006 until June 15, 2008, when he injured his foot running the bases, the first in a string of injuries that derailed his Yankee career. He expects to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday, and he said he selected the Yankees from a group of "four or five" interested clubs, all of whom offered Minor League deals. His 46 wins from 2006-08 were tied for the third most among all American League pitchers, trailing only Roy Halladay and Josh Beckett .
