Aaron Harang
Sep 22: Harang was a tough-luck loser Monday, allowing just one run in seven innings against the Pirates. Harang allowed just four hits and fanned seven in the strong start. The veteran has enjoyed a nice season with the Braves, posting a 3.60 ERA through 32 starts. Harang will finish his season this weekend against Philadelphia.

Sep 10: Harang improved to 11-10 with a win over the Nationals on Wednesday. He was charged with one unearned run on six hits, with nine strikeouts against zero walks over seven innings. It was a nice bounce-back performance from Harang, who was clobbered for six runs on 10 hits over 3.2 innings against Miami in his last start. In fact, the right-hander outdueled Stephen Strasburg, scattering six singles while fanning nine, his highest total since May 11. Harang has had tremendous success against Washington this season, with just two earned runs over 20 innings (three starts), and he'll get them at home his next time out.

Sep 5: Harang lasted just 3.2 innings in Friday's loss to the Marlins, giving up six earned runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out three. For the most part, Harang has put together a surprisingly solid season for the Braves, but the veteran hurler appears close to running out of steam. Over his last five starts, Harang has gone 1-4 while posting a lofty 6.91 ERA and 1.83 WHIP across 27.1 innings. The big right-hander is slated to back atop the mound Wednesday afternoon versus the Nationals.

Aug 24: Harang gave up four runs on eight hits and two walks over 5.1 innings to get the loss Sunday against the Reds. He struck out five. Harang had a big mental mistake in the Reds' three-run fourth inning, failing to get over to first base on Jay Bruce's infield single, a mistake that cost him at least two of the three runs. His next start will come at home Saturday against the Marlins, with him getting an extra day of rest due to Monday's travel day.

Aug 19: Harang (10-7) nearly went the distance Tuesday, tossing 8.1 innings of nine-hit, three-run ball in a win over the Pirates. He did not issue a single walk and also fanned four. This was a nice showing for the 36-year-old, who hadn't recorded a W since July 10 against the Mets (seven starts prior). Harang's pitch count of 114 was one shy of his season high, which he probably would have eclipsed it had Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez not pulled him after three straight hits with one out in the ninth. Regardless, Harang now owns a 3.50 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP and 59:119 BB:K in 26 starts this season, proving that he's still capable of being a dependable workhorse in the bottom end of a talented Braves rotation.

Aug 14: Harang (9-7) had five runs hung on him in just 4.1 innings Thursday against the Dodgers. He coughed up seven hits and three walks while striking out three. An ugly outing for Harang, but he's been overdue for some course correction. He'll look for better results Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

Aug 10: Harang tossed seven solid frames in Saturday's extra-inning loss to the Nationals, surrendering just one run on seven hits and two walks while picking up two strikeouts. Harang turned in yet another strong effort for the Braves on Saturday night, as the veteran hurler has now put together 20 quality starts over 24 outings this season. Currently holding a 3.31 ERA across 149.1 innings in his 13th MLB campaign, Harang is having one of the best years of his career. The 36-year-old righty is slated to be back atop the mound Thursday afternoon against the Dodgers.

Aug 4: Harang turned in six solid innings Sunday afternoon versus the Padres, allowing two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out three. Harang continues to put together a surprisingly strong campaign for the Braves. The veteran hurler has allowed north of three earned runs in just four of his 23 starts this season while posting a 3.41 ERA and 7.0 K/9 across 142.1 innings. Granted, a 1.39 WHIP leaves a little to be desired, but the baseball cliche "effectively wild" comes to mind regarding Harang's work this season. He is next scheduled to be on the mound Saturday versus the Nationals.

Jul 30: Harang allowed four runs on nine hits, walking one and striking out three across six innings against the Dodgers on Tuesday. Six of his nine hits allowed went for extra bases, including a Matt Kemp two-run home run in the second inning. Harang allowed at least a hit in each of his six innings of work, but left with the game tied at 4-4. The outing snapped his streak of six straight quality starts in which he went 4-0 with a 2.20 ERA. His next scheduled start will come on the road against the Padres this Sunday.

Jul 24: Harang did not record a decision in Thursday's start against Miami, but looked good, allowing just two runs and seven hits over seven innings. He issued two walks and struck out five. Harang gave up a pair of runs in the fifth inning, but was otherwise strong. Since a nine-run dud on June 18, Harang has been more than effective in his last six starts, posting a 2.25 ERA during that span. His overall ERA sits at a tidy 3.31, although that might not last much longer with a suspect 1.37 WHIP. He'll face the Dodgers in Los Angeles in his next start.

Jul 20: Harang pitched well in a no-decision against the Phillies on Saturday, tossing six scoreless innings and striking out five while allowing five hits and three walks. Harang had won his last four starts, and he pitched well enough to win this one as well. In his last five outings, he has a 2.18 ERA.

Jul 11: Harang (9-6) allowed just one run on four hits over seven innings in a win over the Mets on Thursday. On the negative side of things, Harang walked four batters while striking out just two, which generally isn't a formula for sustained success. He comes to the break with a decent 3.53 ERA that doesn't match up with his lackluster 1.38 WHIP.

Jul 5: Harang gave up four runs -- three earned -- on nine hits over eight innings Saturday to pick up his eighth win of the season. It was another contact-heavy day for Harang, but he recorded 18 of his 24 outs on the ground, struck out one, and picked up the other five on flyballs. He'll wrap up his first half against the Mets on Thursday at Citi Field.

Jun 29: Harang improved to 7-6 with a win over the Phillies on Sunday. He threw seven innings, striking out four while giving up two runs, 11 hits, and two walks. This was Harang's second quality start following an eight-run meltdown against the Phillies on June 18. Overall, Harang has been a solid source of quality starts this season, collecting his 14th of the year Sunday. He ranks in the top 25 in strikeouts this season and, surprisingly, continues to be a worry-free start in any fantasy format.

Jun 24: Harang picked up his sixth win (6-6) of the season Tuesday by throwing six innings and limiting the Astros to two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five batters in the Braves' 3-2 win. After a brutal start (throwing five innings while giving up eight earned runs on 13 hits) his last time out against the Phillies, Harang rebounded with a quality start Tuesday. Harang now has a 3.78 ERA and 1.37 WHIP on the year to go with a 88:37 K:BB ratio. Harang will make his next start on Sunday in Philadelphia.

Jun 18: Harang was knocked around for nine runs, eight earned, over five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies. He gave up 13 hits, walked three, and struck out four. Harang (5-6) had been steady, delivering four straight quality starts prior to Wednesday. The Phillies managed to get to him early and often, however, tagging him for two runs in the first inning and five in the second. Harang will take a 3.83 ERA to Houston for his next scheduled start on Tuesday.

Jun 13: Harang tossed six solid innings, allowing just one run on four hits with a couple of strikeouts in Friday's 4-3 victory over the Angels. Bringing his record on the year to an even 5-5, Harang turned in yet another strong effort on the mound. The 36-year-old veteran has now put together a streak of four consecutive quality starts, posting a 2.92 ERA across 24.2 innings during that stretch. Harang will look to make it five in a row next week versus the Phillies.

Jun 8: Harang worked into the seventh inning Sunday afternoon, allowing three earned runs on four hits and six walks while striking out four in a loss to the Diamondbacks. In spite of five free passes, Harang managed to keep the D-Backs off the scoreboard through the first six frames of Sunday's outing. However, the seventh turned out to be an entirely different story, as the veteran right-hander was charged with three of the six runs scored in the bottom half of the inning. Though this ultimately turned out to be a losing effort, Harang still gave his team a chance to win and continues to pitch well for the Braves.

Jun 1: Harang didn't factor into the decision Sunday vs. the Marlins, tossing 6.2 innings and giving up two runs. He walked four batters in the outing and struck out just two. The Braves and Marlins fought to a 2-2 stalemate through the first eight innings, preventing Harang from claiming a win for his fourth straight start. Though Sunday's strikeout total marked a season low, Harang has remained effective even with his wins hard to come by of late. He's supplied quality starts in five of his last six turns.

May 27: Harang (4-4) pitched well in a no-decision Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on seven hits while fanning seven and walking one in six innings against the visiting Red Sox. The 6-foot-7 veteran departed the game in line for the win, which was quickly spoiled by a four-run Red Sox rally in the seventh at the expense of the Braves bullpen. Harang's ERA now sits at a very respectable 3.29 to go along with his 1.23 WHIP and team-high 71 strikeouts, numbers he'll look to further improve upon Sunday at Miami. null null

May 18: Harang was charged with three runs (two earned) on six hits and zero walks over six innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Saturday. He struck out seven. The loss drops Harang to 4-4, but it was another quality start from the 36-year-old, giving him eight in nine turns this season. Aside from his nine-run implosion against the Marlins on April 30, Harang has not allowed more than two earnedruns in any other outing, and he has served up just two homers in 54.1 innings. With seven strikeouts Saturday, Harang has now fanned at least six in four of his last five starts.

May 12: Harang turned in another solid outing Sunday against the Cubs, giving up two runs over six innings while striking out nine batters en route to his fourth win of the season. Though it looked like Harang's charmed season was headed for a quick downturn after he allowed nine runs back on Apr. 30, he's since responded with back-to-back quality starts. Harang continues to confound with a surprisingly sharp uptick in his strikeout rate during his age-36 season, boasting a career-best 9.6 K/9 rate over his eight appearances.

May 5: Harang lost Monday against the Cardinals as he pitched six innings and allowed four runs (two earned), nine hits and one walk to go along with six strikeouts. Although it wasn't a sparkling performance, it was an improvement over Harang's last start when he allowed nine runs in 4.2 innings. He got off to a hot start this season, but fantasy owners had to believe his numbers would come back down to reality at some point. Fantasy owners will want to keep a close eye on his next start as it could be an indicator that his run of success is coming to an end.

Apr 30: Harang was roughed up to the tune of nine earned runs Wednesday night in Miami on his way to taking his second loss of 2014. He gave up 10 hits and a walk with four strikeouts. Harang had been off to a brilliant start to the season, but this came to a grinding halt Wednesday night, as his ERA inflated from 0.85 to 2.97. The Braves have until Sunday to activate Gavid Floyd (elbow) from the DL, and this shaky performance may have made the ensuing rotation decision a bit easier on them. Nothing's certain just yet, but Harang's impressive run may be nearing it's end.

Apr 23: Harang gave up one run on six hits and one walk, while striking out 11 over six innings, but did not factor into the decision in the Braves' 3-1 win over the Marlins on Wednesday. The 35-year-old's extraordinary run continues, as he he now owns an 0.85 ERA and a .143 BAA through five starts (31.2 innings) this season. Coming into Wednesday's outing, Harang had a 90.5 percent strand rate and opponents had posted just a .143 BABIP against him, so it seems fair to say he's been relatively lucky. Even so, the right-hander has been a huge addition for Atlanta and has likely earned a couple mulligans, but Gavin Floyd (elbow) doesn't appear to be all that far off and Harang can't afford to get too comfortable.

Apr 18: Harang came up big again, as he allowed no hits and struck out five across seven scoreless innings Friday night versus the Mets. The question with Harang at this point is just how long can he keep this up. Now four starts into his initial campaign with the Braves, the 13-year veteran has a 3-1 record while giving up a mere two runs on nine hits across 25.2 innings. Harang's 7.7 K/9 is certainly solid, as is the fact he has yet to give up a long ball to this point in 2014.

Apr 14: Harang turned in another strong start, allowing just one run on five hits with five strikeouts over six innings against the Nationals on Sunday. The victory improves Harang's record to 2-1 after his first three starts of the campaign. The veteran hurler was signed by the Braves about a week before the regular season kicked off and has performed brilliantly here in the early going. He is sporting a 0.96 ERA and 0.80 WHIP while holding the opposition to a .145 average across 18.2 innings so far.

Apr 8: Harang gave up one earned run on two hits and four walks with nine strikeouts in six innings Tuesday, but was out-dueled by Bartolo Colon, and charged with his first loss of the season. Despite taking the loss Tuesday, Harang's numbers through two starts are off the charts. His ERA and WHIP are each 0.71, and he has 12 strikeouts in 12.2 innings. However, it's really difficult to see this production keeping up, so if you're in a situation where you can sell high, that would be advised.

Apr 2: Harang took a no-hitter into the seventh inning Wednesday against the Brewers. He ended up allowing two hits and one walk, while striking out three over 6.2 scoreless innings, in the win. Harang's Braves debut went better than anyone could have reasonably expected, as Brewers hitters had combined to hit over .300 against the right-hander coming into the game. The team will trot Harang out again for their home opener next Tuesday, but he will likely be squeezed out of the rotation and possibly even DFA'd once the likes of Mike Minor (shoulder) and Gavin Floyd (elbow) are ready to go.

Mar 25: Harang is scheduled to start the Braves' third game of the season and the Apr. 8 home opener against the Mets, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Signed Monday after being released by the Indians, Harang has already assumed the role of No. 3 starter, which speaks volumes about the state of Atlanta's pitching staff. The veteran right-hander will slot in behind Julio Teheran and Alex Wood against Milwaukee, and will be followed by either David Hale or Gus Schlosser. Once Ervin Santana, Mike Minor (shoulder), and Gavin Floyd (elbow) are ready, however, Harang will likely be squeezed out.

Mar 25: Harang will start the Braves' final game of spring training Thursday. Hours after being granted his release from the Indians on Monday, Harang signed with Atlanta, and it looks like he may be relied upon as the fifth starter to begin the season. Freddy Garcia was released, and it doesn't seem the club views Gus Schlosser as a realistic option. Once the likes of Ervin Santana, Mike Minor (shoulder) and Gavin Floyd (elbow) are ready, however, Harang will likely be squeezed out of the starting mix and possibly designated for assignment.

Mar 24: Harang will sign with the Braves, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports. Harang will offer some relief to a much beleaguered rotation for the Braves. The team put five pitchers on the DL on Sunday, opening up an opportunity for Harang to make an impact at the beginning of the season and possibly beyond. He will compete for a spot recently thought to belong to Gus Schlosser.

Mar 24: Harang asked for and received his release from the Indians making him a free agent, Nick Camino of WTAM 1100 reports. Harang split time last season between the Mariners and Mets at the major league level and made 26 starts, struggling to a 5.40 ERA. He has a wealth of big league experience, so a team may be interested as organization depth to add him to their roster.

Mar 23: The Indians have informed Harang that he will not make the major league club, Nick Camino of Newsradio WTAM 1100 reports. By no means was Harang terrible this spring, in fact he allowed just two earned runs while striking out six over nine innings, but it wasn't enough to earn him a spot on the active roster. The right-hander may opt out and seek a job elsewhere, but he could choose to bide his time at Triple-A to begin the season.

Mar 16: Harang allowed a run on four hits and a walk with three strikeouts over four innings Sunday. Harang's main competition for the fifth starter spot appears to be Josh Tomlin and Carlos Carrasco with Trevor Bauer likely pitching himself out of contention. He's pitched well this spring but so have Tomlin and Carrasco.

Mar 7: Harang tossed two scoreless innings with a walk and two strikeouts Thursday. Harang's trying to win a spot in the starting rotation this spring and certainly hasn't done anything to hurt his chances so far.

Feb 26: Harang needed just 13 pitches to get through his first appearance of the spring Wednesday. Harang's competing for the fifth starter spot in Cleveland this spring but figures to need a lot of things to break his way if he wants to earn a rotation spot.

Feb 15: Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said that Harang will compete for a spot in the Cleveland starting rotation, mlb.com's Jordan Bastian reports. With the first four spots settled, Harang, who recently signed a minor league contract, will have to compete with Josh Tomlin, Trevor Bauer, and Carlos Carrasco for the No. 5 gig in the rotation. The Indians may keep the runner-up around as a long reliever and spot starter, potentially providing Harang with a second chance to make the team. The veteran right-hander posted a solid 113:40 K:BB ratio in 143.1 innings last season, but he also surrendered 26 home runs (1.6 HR/9) on his way to a 5.40 ERA and 4.79 FIP. His struggle with the long ball was particularly discouraging given that 13 of his 26 starts were at Safeco Field, with another three at Citi Field. Harang looks like a longshot to land in the major-league rotation, though crazier things have happened.

Feb 15: Harang has signed a minor league deal with the Indians, Nick Camino of WTAM reports. Presumably, Harang will push Trevor Bauer, Josh Tomlin and Carlos Carrasco in the mix for the final spot in the Cleveland rotation to begin the season. It's unclear, however, if he'll hang around as organizational depth at Triple-A, if he's unable to land an Opening Day spot with the Tribe.
