WASHINGTON -- Nationals right-hander Chien-Ming Wang, who is on the disabled list because of a strained left hamstring, will pitch in a simulated game on Wednesday at the Nationals' Minor League complex in Viera, Fla.
If the outing is successful, Wang will then begin a rehab assignment. It's not known what Minor League affiliate he will pitch for. Wang is expected to be activated from the disabled list in late April or early May.
Wang was slated to be Washington's fifth starter to begin the season, but he hurt his hamstring in a Grapefruit League game against the Yankees on March 15.
