Nats, Wang have agreed in principle on a 1-year deal

Wang spent much of last season with the Washington Nationals, starting 11 games with a 4-3 record and a 4.04 ERA. Wang is expected to be a back end of the rotation type of pitcher that can eat innings and not put the bullpen in the game early. Wang has been with the Nationals organization since 2009. In 2009, Wang spent much of the season on rehabilitation assignments in the minor leagues. The Nationals hope Chien-Ming Wang can remain healthy and give them more of what he did in his 11 starts during the 2010 season.
