MLB Trade Rumors:
The Nationals have finalized a new contract with Chien-Ming Wang, reports Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post (Twitter link). The deal will be official once Wang passes a physical. We heard yesterday from Wang's agent Alan Nero that the two sides had "conceptually" agreed to a new deal.
Wang signed one-year contracts with Washington in each of the last two offseasons, and finally made his return to the majors in 2011 after missing the entire 2010 campaign while recovering from shoulder surgery. Wang posted a 4.04 ERA, a 1.92 K/BB rate and a 53.4% ground ball rate in 11 starts with the Nats last year.
