A report out of South Korea has indicated that Wei-Chung Wang has agreed to terms with the NC Dinos of the Korea Baseball Organization.

Wang earned his way back onto the Brewers' 40-man roster this past season with a strong showing at Triple-A following a move to the bullpen, but he struggled in his brief time with the big club. The left-hander will turn just 26 in April.

Brewers recalled LHP Wei-Chung Wang from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Wang faced one batter in the majors back on July 30 but has spent nearly all of the season at Colorado Springs, holding a 2.05 ERA over 47 relief appearances. He'll give the Brew Crew another lefty in the bullpen.

Brewers optioned LHP Wei-Chung Wang to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Wang had himself a cup of coffee with the Brewers after being called up on July 30. Back down to the minors, now. The 25-year-old southpaw owns a fantastic 2.09 ERA and 44/12 K/BB ratio in 47 1/3 innings with Colorado Springs. He figures to be back up with the big league club in September, if not before.

Brewers recalled LHP Wei-Chung Wang from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Wang has pitched well this season after being moved to the bullpen full-time, posting a 2.09 ERA and 44/12 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings. He'll give the Brew Crew another lefty in the bullpen.

Brewers LHP prospect Wei-Chung Wang hurled 6 2/3 shutout frames Saturday in a win for Double-A Biloxi.

He finished with a season-high nine strikeouts while allowing just two hits and a pair of walks. 62 of his season-high 101 pitches went for strikes. Saturday's victory was Wang's first since April 21, ending an eight-game winless drought. Wang raced through the Brewers' system, making his major league debut in 2014 at age 21. He flamed out quickly, culminating in a demotion to High-A Brevard County last season. The left-hander holds a 4.07 ERA over 12 starts for Biloxi in 2016.

Brewers sent LHP Wei-Chung Wang outright to High-A Brevard County.

Wang was designated for assignment by Milwaukee earlier this week and made it through waivers unclaimed. He has struggled this season in High-A ball and is now off the Brewers' 40-man roster. It'll be a challenge for the 23-year-old from Taiwan to make it back to the majors.

Brewers designated LHP Wei-Chung Wang for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Matt Dominguez on the 40-man roster. Wang, 23, appeared in 14 games with the Brewers last season and owns a rough 5.93 ERA over 12 starts in High-A this season.

Brewers optioned LHP Wei-Chung Wang to High-A Brevard County.

Wang pitched just 17 1/3 innings for the Brew Crew last season, as they tried to limit the Rule 5 pick's exposure as much as possible. The lefty will turn just 23 in April and has some developing to do, but he's an interesting project.

Wei-Chung Wang walked off the mound with a trainer after five innings in Arizona Fall League.

He was seen clutching his lower back. There's no word yet as to whether five innings was just what he had been scheduled to start, but it's not a good sign that he exited with a trainer. Wang missed two months with discomfort in his throwing shoulder, but at least for now that does not appear to be the issue.

Brewers activated LHP Wei-Chung Wang from the 15-day disabled list.

Wang missed nearly two months with discomfort in his left shoulder. The 22-year-old Rule 5 Draft pick has struggled mightily this season at the major league level and probably won't see many high-leverage appearances down the stretch.

Wei-Chung Wang (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with the Brewers' Arizona League club Sunday.

Wang figures to remain on a rehab assignment until September, as the Brewers want to keep the Rule 5 pick but have no intention of using him in any meaningful situations. He's already been on the active roster for the 90 days needed in order to retain him.

Brewers placed LHP Wei-Chung Wang on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder tightness.

Wang gave up two runs over a relief inning Thursday to push his ERA up to 11.12. The Rule 5 pick has some talent, but he's clearly not big league-ready and is probably better off being stashed on the DL. He's already been on the active roster for the 90 days needed in order to retain him, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he's kept out the rest of the season or at least until September.

Rule 5 pick Wei-Chung Wang gave up five runs and two homers in two-thirds of an inning before being pulled from Monday's game against the Braves.

Wang couldn't even get through his inning; he threw 40 pitches in getting two outs and the Brewers weren't going to extend him any longer. Instead, they turned to Lyle Overbay to get the final out of the bottom of the eighth, which he did. At this point, the Brewers have to either make up an injury for Wang or let him go. Wang might be a useful pitcher someday, but he'd be in high-A ball for the Pirates right now if not for his status as a Rule 5 pick.

The Brewers are considering their options with Wei-Chung Wang.

Wang, a Rule 5 draft pick, would need to be offered back to the Pirates for $25,000 if the team decided to demote him. The decision will be based largely on need -- after playing two extra-innings games and dealing with Matt Garza's injury-shortened start over the last three days, the bullpen needs an extra arm heading into the weekend. Through six innings this year, the 22-year-old has a 15.00 ERA and 2.50 WHIP.
