Wang, a Brewers selection in the 2013 Rule 5 Draft, was seen grabbing his lower back as he walked toward the clubhouse and despite the appearance, the 22-year old insisted nothing was wrong.

MESA, Ariz. -- After throwing five innings for Glendale in Thursday's Arizona Fall League finale, Milwaukee's Wei-Chung Wang left the field and headed to the clubhouse accompanied by members of the training staff.

Wang, a Brewers selection in the 2013 Rule 5 Draft, was seen grabbing his lower back as he walked toward the clubhouse and despite the appearance, the 22-year old insisted nothing was wrong.

"This is just his regular routine," Wang said through his interpreter. "I went to the tub and to ice. Just regular routine, nothing else."

The 22-year old threw five innings and allowed four runs on six hits in his final AFL start.

"Most part, I felt good," Wang said. "A couple mistakes -- like the home run -- made it seem [worse]."

Wang appeared in 14 games with the Brewers this season with a 10.90 ERA.

In the AFL, Wang has made six starts and allowed seven earned runs in 23 innings.
