Wang throws off the mound, set to return late April

Nationals right-handed starter Chien-Ming Wang, who has been nursing a strained hamstring in extended spring training in Viera since mid-March, is on target to return in late April, Manager Davey Johnson said. Wang, who hurt his leg muscle on March 15 and is on the 15-day disabled list, hadn’t thrown off the mound until recently.

“He’s doing very well,” Johnson said. “He’s been throwing off the mound. He’s been doing a lot of running. Again, he’s ahead of the program. We anticipate him being back toward the end of this month. So he has had no setbacks. He’s doing great.”

James Wagner joined the Post in August 2010 and, prior to covering the Nationals, covered high school sports across the region.
