MLB.com is reporting the Nationals are highly interested in free-agent right-hander Chien-Ming Wang. At the team's FanFest on Jan. 31, general manager Mike Rizzo said the team was looking for one more veteran starter.
Wang, who had shoulder surgery in July, went 1-6 with a 9.64 ERA for the Yankees last season before shutting it down for the surgery. In 2006, he was 19-6 with a 3.63 ERA and in '07, the Japanese pitcher was 19-7 with a 3.70 ERA.
Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated reported on his Twitter page Wednesday morning that Dodgers GM Ned Colletti and one of the team's top executives plan on watching Wang throw at some point today.

The Philadelphia Daily News is reporting that Ruben Amaro Jr. confirmed the Phillies plan to watch Noah Lowry when he auditions for scouts in Arizona. Amaro characterized the team's interest as "moderate" with the Astros, Mets, Rangers and Red Sox also reportedly interested.
Lowry hasn't pitched since 2007 because of a series of arm injuries. Lowry's agent, Damon Lapa, said that although Lowry has not had a setback, they've decided to give the lefty a little more time in the bullpen before being evaluated.
