Former Yankees starter Chien-Ming Wang has agreed to a deal with the Washington Nationals. He had previously been linked to a “team on either coast,” and with Boston right on the Atlantic Ocean, a Wang-Red Sox match seemed possible. In the end, however, the Nationals snagged the soon-to-be-30-year-old off the market.
Wang had a disastrous 2009 season for the Yankees, finishing 1-6 with a 9.64 ERA in 12 games (9 starts). He then underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder. He could make a rehabilitation start as soon as May.
From 2006-2007, Wang was a durable starter for the Yankees. He tossed at least 199 innings and won 19 games each season in pinstripes.
