Wang, who gave up six earned runs off seven hits and two walks in Tuesday night in Double-A, had a recurrence of the hip soreness that landed him on the disabled list on July 3, a team spokesman said.
The 32-year-old right-hander has been taken off his minor league rehab assignment and shut down indefinitely, making it highly unlikely that he’ll be cleared to return from the disabled list before rosters expand in September. And if Wang is not able to progress quickly from this recent run of hip discomfort, it’s possible that we won’t see him again this season.
Wang has tossed just 80 innings — to the tune of a 5.02 ERA — since signing with the Nationals in 2010.
