Wang in line for extended spring game Monday
WASHINGTON -- Nationals right-hander Chien-Ming Wang, who is on the disabled list because of a strained left hamstring, is expected to pitch in an extended spring game on Monday, when he likely will throw 35 pitches.

Wang is expected to be activated from the disabled list sometime in May. It will be interesting to see if Wang will go into the rotation or work out of the bullpen. It would be difficult to take Ross Detwiler out, because he has a 0.56 ERA, which ranks second in the National League.

"I don't want to think about it," manager Davey Johnson said Friday night. "I like what I'm seeing. [Detwiler] has been outstanding."

Detwiler is leaving it up to the Nationals to determine who stays in the rotation.

"[The Nationals] have been doing this for a long time. They know what's best for the team, and that's what it comes down to," Detwiler said. "We are playing great right now."
