MLB Free Agency: Chien-Ming Wang Re-Signs With Washington Nationals, According To Multiple Reports

It looks like the Washington Nationals have indeed re-signed Chien-Ming Wang, according to multiple reports by several local media members. The deal is pending a physical, according to Ben Goessling of MASN Sports, who had the news first. Wang will receive a one-year contract, according to reports from several local beat writers. The amount of money Wang will make is still unclear.

UPDATE: Wang will make $4 million, according to Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman.

Wang has been with the Nationals for two years, but spent most of that time rehabbing reconstructive shoulder surgery. He appeared in 11 games in the second half of last season, going 4-3 with a 4.04 ERA. The Nationals envision him as a back-of-the-rotation starter behind Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmermann. The 31-year old is best known for his work with the New York Yankees, whom he pitched for during the first five years of his MLB career.
