Wang would like to return to Nationals
WASHINGTON -- Right-hander Chien-Ming Wang is a free agent after this season, and said through an interpreter that he would like to return to the Nationals next season.

Wang said he feels loyalty toward the team because it took care of him when he had shoulder problems the last two years. He also said money will not be an issue.

"They have taken care of me a lot the past two years. So I want to come back," said Wang, who is making $1 million this season. "I want to help them get more wins. I just want to get back, no matter the salary."

Wang continues to make progress since returning from his shoulder woes. Entering Friday's action against the Astros, Wang has appeared in eight games, and is 2-3 with a 4.43 ERA.

In his last start, Wang received a no-decision and allowed four runs in six innings. If he comes back to Washington for the 2012 season, Wang most likely will be the third starter in the rotation, behind right-handers Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmermann.
