MLB.com is reporting the Nationals are highly interested in free-agent right-hander Chien-Ming Wang. At the team's FanFest on Jan. 31, general manager Mike Rizzo said the team was looking for one more veteran starter.
Wang, who had shoulder surgery in July, went 1-6 with a 9.64 ERA for the Yankees last season before shutting it down for the surgery. In 2006, he was 19-6 with a 3.63 ERA and in '07, the Japanese pitcher was 19-7 with a 3.70 ERA.
Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated reported on his Twitter page Wednesday morning that Dodgers GM Ned Colletti and one of the team's top executives plan on watching Wang throw at some point today.
