WASHINGTON -- The Nationals signed right-hander Chien-Ming Wang to a one-year Major League deal on Thursday. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but reports indicate that Wang will get $1 million guaranteed and could make up to $5 million in incentives.
Wang was non-tendered by the Nationals late last month, but indicated to his agent, Alan Nero, that he wanted to stay with the club because of the way it treated him while recovering from right shoulder surgery.
Wang hasn't pitched in a Major League game in almost two years because of foot and shoulder problems. He did pitch in the Instructional League this fall and didn't have any problem with the shoulder.
Wang is best known for his years with the Yankees, winning a combined 38 games in 2006 and '07.
