Chien-Ming Wang rejoins Nationals the morning after rough rehab outing

← return to Nationals Watch

By Tom Schad

Chien-Ming Wang was roughed up in his ninth and final rehab start with the AA Harrisburg Senators Saturday evening, but it wasn’t enough to deter his return to the Nationals.

The 32-year-old Wang reentered the Nationals clubhouse Sunday morning after starting the first game of Harrisburg’s double-header the night before. He lasted just two innings and surrendered seven hits, six runs and two home runs - including a grand slam - in the Senators’ 8-5 loss to the Bowie Baysox. 

A right hip strain originally landed Wang on the disabled list nearly two months ago, on July 3. He was set to rejoin the club on August 11 before the injury flared and he was pulled from a start three days prior. Since signing with the team in 2010, he has made 15 major league starts and 21 minor league rehab starts. 

Wang will almost certainly have the day off after pitching Saturday night, and it is unclear what his role will be when he next takes the mound.
