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.

"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.

"Everything was good, nothing there," Harang said. "I was never worried about it. That's the whole point of spring training. There's no reason to push anything now. It's not important. Just making sure everything's right and you can go out and not have any problems."


Phillies' Harang opts to skip spring debut Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Harang was scratched from his spring debut Wednesday against the Yankees.

Harang added he does intend to be ready the next time his turn in the rotation comes up.

Kevin Slowey will start in Harang's place Wednesday.

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.
