Chien Ming Wang will return to the starting rotation for the Washington Nationals, taking the place of Ross Detwiler, according to The Washington Post.

Nationals Manager Davey Johnson said the move was made because of Wang's superior track record, in addition to Detwiler's pitching being better suited to a spot as a reliever. From the Washington Post:

“It would be very hard for me to have a 19-game winner who’s come back from arm surgery and to have him in the bullpen,” Johnson said. “Here’s a guy who’s been in pennant fights. He knows what the pressure is all about. So it’s a good opportunity for him and for us to be in the role he’s accustomed to, and that’s starting. It doesn’t lessen the fact that I think Detwiler is a heck of a pitcher.”

Detwiler started off the season well, but has allowed 16 earned runs over his last four starts.
