Wang to start next for Double-A Harrisburg
WASHINGTON -- Nationals right-hander Chien-Ming Wang is expected to pitch to five to six innings, or throw 75 pitches, for Double-A Harrisburg on Thursday.

Wang will then get one more start before the Nationals determine if he is ready to return to the big leagues. Wang has yet to play in a big league game this season because of a left hamstring strain suffered against the Yankees on March 15.

Manager Davey Johnson still hasn't decided if Wang will return to the rotation as the fifth starter. Currently, Ross Detwiler is in that role, and he has been one of Washington's best pitchers, going 2-1 with a 1.64 ERA in four starts.
