Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports via Twitter that free agent pitcher Chien-Ming Wang, who had been in the Phillies' sights, will soon sign with the Nationals. The 29-year-old right-hander was non-tendered by the Yankees in December after undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery. He isn't expected to be ready to join Washington's rotation until May.
Update: According to FoxSports Ken Rosenthal, Wang has received an offer from another unidentified team and will make his final decision in a week to 10 days. That offer could be from any number of teams, including the Dodgers, Mets, Orioles, or possibly the Phillies, who are still looking for another low-cost, back-end starter.
