Phillies SP Aaron Harang struggles against Nationals on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/26/2015) Phillies veteran right-hander Aaron Harang had another sub-par outing on Friday. Harang gave up five runs (four earned) to the Nationals over six innings of work. He walked one and struck out five in the 5-2 defeat.

Harang gave up an early run in the top of the first inning, and then actually settled in to put up zeroes over the next four innings. But he gave up a pair of runs in the fifth, and then served up a two-run home run to Matt den Dekker in the sixth.

Harang (4-10) has now allowed four or more earned runs in each of his five starts this month. Entering June, his ERA was at 2.02. After Friday's performance, it sits at 3.56, and he hasn't picked up a win since May 14.


Phillies starter Aaron Harang takes another defeat


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/20/2015) Phillies starter Aaron Harang pitched a decent game Saturday against the Cardinals, but it wasn't enough to prevent him from losing his ninth game of the season.

Harang went six innings, giving up seven hits, but allowed four earned runs before the bullpen exploded in an eventual 10-1 loss. Harang struck out six and walked just one, but still dropped his sixth straight start. 

Harang has not won since May 14, and over that time, his ERA has risen from 2.03 to 3.41. 


Astros like Aaron Harang, but aiming for higher trade targets


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2015) While the Astros like Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Harang, the team is aiming even higher in terms of trade targets, a source told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The veteran right-hander is 4-8 with a 3.24 ERA through 14 starts.


Aaron Harang loses fifth straight for Phillies


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2015) Phillies starter Aaron Harang dropped to 4-8 with his fifth loss in a row on Monday. 

Harang gave up four runs in six innings, surrendering five hits, including a home run, his fifth in the last two starts. Harang walked two and struck out two. 

Harang's next start is Saturday, against St. Louis. 


Phillies P Aaron Harang struggles in loss to Reds


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang was rocked during Tuesday night’s 11-2 loss against the Reds.

Harang gave up seven earned runs in six innings. Four of those runs came in the first inning of the blowout.

The seven earned runs mark a single-high for Harang in a game. He also gave up two walks and struck out four. Most concerning was the fact that the Reds hit four home runs off of him, which was how many home runs he entered the game allowing all year.

Despite the poor performance, Harang now has a 3.04 ERA, though it was 2.45 entering the day.

Harang’s next start is projected for June 15 against the Orioles.


Phillies' Aaron Harang allows six runs in loss vs. Reds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang endured his worst performance of the season in Thursday's loss, giving up six runs (five earned) on six hits and five walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 6-4 defeat against the Reds.

Harang (4-6) didn't fail to complete six innings in any of his first 11 starts of the season, and he allowed more than three runs just once, when the Cardinals scored five runs in six innings off the start in late April. However, the Reds were able to get a run in the first inning, two in the fifth and three more in the sixth to chase Harang from the game.

"I didn't feel as sharp," Harang said, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I felt like I was leaving the ball up in the zone and my control wasn't as pinpoint as it had been. You're going to run into those situations. The guys battled back and made it interesting there in the end. They saw that I was battling and really grinding and they got a few hits in key situations. It's just one of those things. You've got to rub it off and just look forward to my next start against them."

Harang owns a 2.45 ERA and 54:20 K:BB ratio in 77 innings. He's slated to face the Reds again on Tuesday, this time in Cincinnati.


Phillies SP Aaron Harang posts quality start, gets tough-luck loss


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/30/2015) Phillies starter Aaron Harang posted another quality start, but earned a tough-luck loss in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Rockies. Harang went six innings, limiting the Rockies to two runs on four hits.

He struck out seven and did not walk a batter. He did need 109 pitches to make it through the sixth, but it was a solid outing nonetheless.

The only runs to go against Harang came on solo home runs from Nolan Arenado and Michael McKenry. Otherwise, Harang was brilliant yet again. The veteran right-hander has now thrown six straight quality starts, as his ERA actually rose to 2.02 following Saturday's performance.

"That was a quality start for Harang," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said, per MLB.com. "Threw 109 pitches and gave up two runs. He pitched well with men on base. We struggled out of the bullpen with command and leaving pitches up in the zone and gave some runs up. On the offensive side of things we had men left on base and couldn't get the big hit."

He'll look to keep the good times rolling in his next start, scheduled for Friday at home against the Giants.


Phillies skipping Severino Gonzalez in weekend series vs. Rockies


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) With Thursday's off-day, the Phillies will skip rookie Severino Gonzalez's next turn through the rotation, per The Philadelphia Inquirer. Gonzalez was slated to start Sunday against the Rockies.

The rotation for a three-game series vs. Colorado will be Cole Hamels on Friday, Aaron Harang on Saturday and Jerome Williams on Sunday. 


Phillies P Aaron Harang allows 2 runs in loss to Nationals


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang gave up two earned runs in Sunday afternoon's 4-1 loss to the Nationals. 

Harang went six innings and allowed seven hits. He struck out two batters and walked two others. His ERA is now just 1.93 for the season. 

It was a solid effort in a game where he got only one run of support. Washington's Gio Gonzalez pitched a magnificant game on the other side which contributed to Harang's loss.

"We knew we would be up for a challenge coming in here," Harang said, via MLB.com. "They've been playing us tough all season. Yeah, it stinks to lose a game like that, but obviously they were just a little bit ahead of us."

Harang has now only allowed 14 earned runs in 65 1/3 innings this year. 

Harang's next start is projected for Saturday against the Rockies. 


Phillies' Aaron Harang whiffs seven in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang turned in a quality start but was unable to factor into the decision Tuesday night against the Rockies in Coors Field.

Harang ran into some issues early on in his outing. He permitted a two-run triple to Wilin Rosario and a run-scoring single to Nick Hundley in the opening frame for his only damage of the night. He permitted three runs -- none earned -- on three hits and three walks while striking out seven over six innings of work. Of his 99 pitches, 59 were strikes.

Harang has not allowed an earned run over his last two starts (14 innings). He will look to stay sharp Sunday at Washington.


Phillies SP Aaron Harang could be a trade candidate


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) Right-hander Aaron Harang has been one of the biggest bargains from this past offseason so far in 2015. The Phillies gave Harang a one-year, $5 million contract in January. In return, Harang has given them eight solid starts, pitching to a 2.03 ERA in 53 1/3 innings. He blanked the Pirates through eight innings on Thursday, and has pitched at least six innings in each of his starts this year.

With the Phillies unlikely to contend this season, Harang could be a possible trade chip, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. Harang would be a solid, veteran presence in the rotation for a possible contender, if the Phillies decide to move him this summer.


Phillies P Aaron Harang goes 8 innings strong in win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang did not allow a single earned run in Thursday afternoon's 4-2 win over the Pirates. 

Harang went eight innings and gave up five hits in 112 pitches. He struck out six and only walked one batter. He improved to 4-3 this season and improved his ERA to 4.03. 

After allowing five runs in a game against the Cardinals on April 25, Harang has performed well over his past three starts. He's only allowed three earned runs in that span while striking out 10 and only walking two. 

Harang's next start is projected for May 19 against the Rockies. 


Phillies SP Aaron Harang suffers loss Saturday despite seven strong IP


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/9/2015) Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Harang (3-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on eight hits in seven innings Saturday to suffer the loss against the Mets.

The big blow came in the seventh when, leading 2-1, Harang served up a two-run homer to center fielder Juan Lagares, proving to be the game-winning runs for the Mets.

"It was supposed to be down and away and I totally missed my spot," Harang said of the pitch Lagares hit for the homer. "You can tell by his swing he was looking fastball."

"Harang was outstanding [except for] one high fastball he'd like to have back," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said.

Harang returns to the mound for his next start on Thursday against the Pirates.


Phillies' Aaron Harang earns third win of the season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang allowed only one earned run in Monday night's 5-2 win over the Braves. 

Harang went six innings and gave up five hits. The run was given up in the sixth and came off of a Freddie Freeman RBI single. Harang struck out two batters and walked one. He now has an ERA of 2.35. 

Harang is now 3-2 this season. 

Harang's next start is projected for Saturday against the Mets. 


Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang tagged for five runs in losing effort


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang allowed five runs on nine hits in six innings of work in Philadelphia's 5-2 loss to the Cardinals Wednesday.

Harang didn't have many issues until the fifth inning when Peter Bourjos tripled, bringing home a run. Then, Matt Carpenter picked up an RBI on a fielder's choice. After a walk, Matt Adams cracked a double to left field, to bring home a third run in the inning. Jhonny Peralta then singled for another run before Harang was able to stop the bleeding.

Harang, now 2-2, boasts a 2.51 ERA in 32 1/3 innings of work this season. He will look to get back on track Monday against the Braves.


Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang enjoying early season success


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang is old by baseball standards. But the veteran is not letting his age effect his poise on the mound, starting the year with a 2-1 record and a blistering 1.37 ERA in four starts. He's taking the compliments as they come, reports Philly.com.

"It is nothing I think about and I am going out and having fun and trying to give us a chance to win," Harang said. "Am I shocked with how the beginning of the season is going this year?"

Harang will take his surprising record into St. Louis Wednesday. 

"I have a good feel right now for what I am doing and I am able to make pitches when I need to and the guys behind me have been making some key plays and getting key double plays when I execute a pitch," he said.


Phillies' Aaron Harang takes no decision after 8 scoreless innings


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/24/2015) Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Harang shut out the Braves for eight innings on Wednesday, allowing two hits and striking out six but received zero run support and took a no decision. 

One of the two hits allowed was a double to catcher A.J. Pierzynski. 

"It was the same thing last year," Harang said, referring to a 0.85 ERA through his first five starts last season with Atlanta. "If you work fast in the count and try to get their guys to hit the ball early in the count, it's going to keep the defense on their toes. I'm trying to get us off the field and back to the dugout to get the offense going."

With Friday's performance, Harang's ERA on the season was lowered to 1.37. 

"We didn't do anything against Harang, a guy that we've seen pitch 30-something times," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "He did a good job of keeping us off balance,"

Harang returns to the mound for his next start Wednesday in St. Louis.

Harang struck out eight batters in his season debut but regressed in his second start, though he still pitched well enough for the win but was let down by his offense. The only run he allowed came in the fourth inning, giving up a one-out double and then surrendering a two-out single to bring the decisive run home.

Harang (1-1) is slated to face the Nationals Saturday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang threw five innings in a minor-league game Tuesday and said afterward he came out of the start with no issues, MLB.com reports.

"It felt good. No problems getting up and down," Harag said. "I felt like I had pretty decent command. Not great. But when you come over and throw one of these back-field games, it's more about just a feel. These guys want to come out and swing hard and swing early, so it makes you have to pitch backwards -- work on your offspeed stuff early in the counts and then go back to fastballs."

Harang has had starts pushed back twice this spring due to lower back discomfort. He's expected to throw 85 to 90 pitches Sunday against the Tigers and is on schedule to start the second game of the regular season for the Phillies, if the team chooses to use him as the No. 2 starter.
