WASHINGTON -- Nationals right-hander Chien-Ming Wang will make one more regular-season start for the Nationals before his year comes to an end, according to manager Davey Johnson. The start will most likely come against the Cardinals this weekend.
In his last outing against the Brewers, Wang lasted four innings and allowed two earned runs on eight hits. The numbers were not as bad as they appear. It didn't help that Bryce Harper had problems with the sun in center field, helping the Brewers score both runs in the fourth.
Wang is not expected to be on the playoff roster, as Johnson has said the team will likely use four starters -- Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Edwin Jackson and Ross Detwiler -- in the starting rotation.
Wang had two stints on the disabled list this year because of hamstring and hip injuries. After he recovered from the hip injury, Wang spent time rehabbing in the Minor Leagues. During his Major League stint, Wang is 2-3 with a 6.60 ERA in nine games.
