Chien-Ming Wang Reportedly Close To Return To Nationals

Before the 2010 season, the Nationals signed pitcher Chien-Ming Wang. He didn't pitch a single inning for the Nats last season after offseason shoulder surgery. With the Nationals' luck this winter, it looks like they are bringing Wang back.

Via Fanhouse, Wang is reportedly close to returning to Washington on a one-year deal. Terms are undisclosed, but it might be safe to say that the Nationals could get a discount on Wang's services considering the circumstances.

Wang hasn't had a full, productive season since 2007, when he won 19 games for the New York Yankees. In 2009, he had a 9.64 ERA for New York, who thought it might be in their best interest to part ways.

Regardless, Wang is a veteran presence for a rotation looking to rebound from injuries of its own. Jordan Zimmermann is battling back from Tommy John surgery and Stephen Strasburg could miss the entire year after having the same procedure.
