According to Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson, right hander Chien Ming Wang will start for the Nats on Sunday when they face the Brewers. Mark Zuckerman tweeted the following on Thursday:

Wang pitched 2.1 innings on Wednesday night, his first appearance in the major leagues since June. He has been bothered by issues with his right hip, and has spent considerable amounts of time on the disabled list in each of the last two seasons. He missed the entire 2010 season while recovering from surgery.

Wang threw 32 pitches in the Wednesday outing, allowing a pair of hits and striking out a batter. Wang has pitched 26 innings total in 2012, compiling a 6.92 ERA in the process.
