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.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Harang walked two. He threw 60 strikes in 91 pitches.

Harang's next start is scheduled for Thursday, against the Marlins and David Phelps. 


Phillies' Aaron Harang takes hard luck loss vs. Mets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang allowed just one earned run on four hits and two walks in six innings while striking out one Monday and was stuck with the loss in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Mets.

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 Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Harang worked efficiently through the first three innings, recording six strikeouts and no hits. Harang, who needed 105 pitches to get through his outing, left with two runners on, but Jeanmar Gomez finished the inning without allowing a run.

He will look to keep rolling Monday against the Mets.


Phillies' Aaron Harang throws five innings in minor-league game


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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"Obviously, we just have to make sure nothing comes up, but the last few days I've felt great," Harang said after the start, per MLB.com.

Harang is expected to open the season in the team's rotation if he can stay healthy for the remainder of spring.

"The whole back thing, I know the feel," Harang said. "It's the first two weeks of the spring when you're running around in your cleats and getting used to being out running around and standing around. I don't go home in the offseason and stand in my front yard with my spikes and train for this."

Harang is locked into the Phillies rotation after being signed this offseason. He went 12-12 with a 3.57 ERA and 161:71 K:BB ratio in 204 1/3 innings with the Braves last season.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Kevin Correia, Aaron Harang, Josh Johnson and Kyle Kendrick have all been considered by the club.

Though the team is said to be interested in all three players, it has not engaged in serious conversations with any of them. 


Hart: Braves will focus on signing 'B-tier and down' free agent SPs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) With the Braves not planning to pursue any top-tier starting pitchers in free agency, president of baseball operations John Hart said the team will focus on "B-tier and down" free agent starters, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. However, the team could aim a little higher in trades.

"Money could be freed up; there’s a lot of different dynamics there," Hart said. "But from where we sit today, that would be the sort of level that we would be looking at."

The Braves have lost more than 400 innings with the departure of Ervin Santana and Aaron Harang. Although, Hart said the team might be interested in re-signing the 36-year-old Harang.

The team is also pondering offering contracts to Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy, who are coming off Tommy John surgery in March. It is believed the Braves are leaning toward re-signing Medlen, but with a smaller salary that includes incentives and a second-year option.
