AP Source: Nationals, Wang agree, pending physical



WASHINGTON (AP) — A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that right-hander Chien-Ming Wang and the Washington Nationals have agreed to the terms of a contract, pending a physical.

The person spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because no official announcement had been made.

Wang went 4-3 with a 4.04 ERA in 11 starts for Washington in 2011.

He returned to the majors on July 29, exactly two years after surgery on his right shoulder. Until then, Wang hadn’t appeared in a big league game since July 4, 2009, when he was with the New York Yankees, for whom he twice won 19 games in a season.

Wang is currently in Taiwan, pitching for the national team against a collection of major league players.
