Chien-Ming Wang adds velocity in second post-surgery outing

Oct 12, 2010, 5:16 PM EDT

Clocked at 85-87 miles per hour last week in his first game action since shoulder surgery, Chien-Ming Wang took the mound for the second time in an instructional league game today and upped his velocity to 89 mph.
Wang threw 17 pitches in two shutout innings, inducing four ground-ball outs. Soon to be a free agent after signing a one-year, $2 million deal last offseason, Wang is guaranteed at least $1.6 million via the arbitration process if the Nationals decide to tender him a contract.
However, according to Ben Goessling of MASNSports.com the Nationals will likely try to work out a new deal with Wang that would allow them to keep him around for less guaranteed money after he failed to throw a pitch this season.
