Nats’ Wang to have rehab stint
Nationals right-hander Chien-Ming Wang will have a rehab stint with Class A Hagerstown on Monday. It will be his first professional game of any kind for the Nationals. It’s not known how many innings Wang will throw for Hagerstown.
Since he joined the club in 2009, Wang has yet to play a professional game for Washington because of right shoulder problems. While rehabbing the shoulder, however, Wang has been able to participate in Minor League intrasquad games.
In other news, with John McLaren as the interim manager, Trent Jewett will be the bench coach for Friday’s game against the White Sox.
