Nationals Monitoring Chien-Ming Wang

The Nationals are the latest team linked to free agent righty Chien-Ming Wang, reports MLB.com's Bill Ladson.  Wang, 30 in March, had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right shoulder capsule on July 29th of last year.  On January 28th, Wang's agent Alan Nero told ESPN's Jayson Stark that his client is expected to "make a major-league start sometime in the first two weeks of May."  If we project Wang's return date as May 15th, that'd be 75% of a season. 

Nero told Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports a week ago that he's "anticipating a major-league offer with a substantial guarantee and substantial upside."  About six clubs have been in on Wang this winter to some extent, including the Nationals, Dodgers, Phillies, Cardinals, and Mets.  SI's Jon Heyman says an April showcase is possible.
