Profile: Wang's fantasy value does not exist in this reality or any other one. He’s a two-inning middle reliever, which has never been coveted by fantasy owners. For those who need to be convinced to stay away, here are some facts. His ERA’s from the past three seasons are 6.68, 7.67, and 4.22. His 5.5 K-BB% was the 22nd-worst last season from pitchers with 50 IP. His 5.3% swinging-strike rate was the 3rd-worst. The 36-year-old coulddecide to hang up his cleats at this point in his career. A relief pitcher with more talent than Wang should be available on the waiver wire. If not, get out of the 60-team league. (Jeff Zimmerman)

The Quick Opinion: Wang has had no fantasy value over the past three seasons. This season should continue the trend.
