Washington signing Chien-Ming Wang to an incentive-laden one-year contract for 2010 didn’t work out so well, as never threw a pitch for the Nationals after struggling to come back from shoulder surgery, but Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the two sides are giving it another try.
According to Rosenthal the Nationals are close to signing Wang to another one-year deal, presumably even heavier on incentives and lighter on guaranteed money after he earned $2 million this year.
Wang hasn’t pitched in the majors since July of 2009, when shoulder problems ended his season with a 1-6 record and 9.64 ERA, and the former Cy Young award runner-up also missed much of 2008 with a foot injury.
