Tonight will be the first day back for Wang from what has been a very long and rocky recovery since his 2009 shoulder surgery. It will be the first time Wang has pitched in a game at either the minor or major league level since 2009 and will be his first professional start since July 4, 2009.
Although it seems like forever ago that Wang had back to back seasons of 19 wins with the Yankees he is still just 31 years old and barring any further set backs could still have some years left in him as a pitcher. Now whether it is with the Nationals or not remains to be seen but hopefully for Wang the fact that he is finally pitching again after almost 2 years is a good sign.
For anyone in or around the Hagerstown area it is a home game and is slated for a 7:05 start time
