Description: Braves starter Aaron Harang struck out nine batters in six innings Tuesday against the Mets.
Insight: He allowed just two hits, walked four and gave up one run to take a tough-luck loss. The 35-year-old has given up only four hits and one run in his first 12 2/3 innings this season. He's unlikely to keep it up.
 
4/2/2014 7:59:00 PM
Description: Aaron Harang took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in his Braves debut Wednesday at Milwaukee.
Insight: The Braves picked up Harang in late March and had to put him in their rotation due to numerous injuries. He had a 5.40 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP in 143 1/3 innings last season and isn't worth adding in fantasy.

Insight: Harang was released by Cleveland less than 24 hours ago. He's actually pitched pretty well this spring with two wins and a 2.00 ERA in four appearances. The Braves really just need a healthy body now that Kris Medlen (elbow) and Brandon Beachy (elbow) are both out for the season.

Insight: It's anyone's guess whether he'll make the team. If he does, we wouldn't count on him as a fantasy option after posting a 5.40 ERA in 26 starts in 2013.
 
9/2/2013 9:23:00 AM
Description: Journeyman Aaron Harang has signed a minor league deal with the Mets.
Insight: He's been assigned to the team's Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas. The 35-year-old gives the Mets depth but little else. He hasn't been a factor in fantasy since winning 16 games for the Reds back in 2007.
 
8/26/2013 7:40:00 PM
Description: The Mariners designated righthander Aaron Harang for assignment on Monday.
Insight: Harang's tenure with the M's lasted all of four months. He's an innings eater so he shouldn't be on the market for too long.
 
6/1/2013 8:32:00 PM
Description: Mariners starter Aaron Harang allowed two runs on four hits in six innings Saturday against the Twins.
Insight: It's a nice follow-up to the shutout he threw his last time out. The right-hander has thrown six innings or more and allowed two runs or less in four of the last five starts, but he gave up seven earned on nine hits in 3 2/3 in the other one.
 
5/27/2013 8:57:00 PM
Description: Seattle righthander Aaron Harang recorded his seventh career shutout Monday against the Padres.
Insight: It's a step in the right direction but we're still not ready to trust someone with a 6.51 ERA and a .281 batting average against. Harang's next start is scheduled for Saturday against Minnesota.
 
5/16/2013 3:00:00 PM
Description: Mariners starter Aaron Harang has been scratched from Thursday's start against the Yankees due to back stiffness, according to Shannon Drayer of 710 AM ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Harang had an 11.37 ERA in three April starts but has gone 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP in two starts this month. Hector Noesi will make a spot start Thursday against his former ballclub.
 
4/11/2013 3:39:00 PM
Description: The Mariners acquired Aaron Harang from the Rockies for a reliever.
Insight: Harang was traded from the Dodgers to the Rockies last week but was immediately designated for assignment. Harang should join Seattle's starting rotation immediately upon his arrival but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll be useful to fantasy owners. Harang carried an abysmal strikeout to walk ratio in 2012 (131 K's to 85 free passes) and the AL West features some of the toughest lineups in baseball. For now, we'd recommend a wait and see approach with Harang.
 
4/6/2013 8:49:00 PM
Description: The Rockies have traded catcher Ramon Hernandez to the Dodgers for right-hander Aaron Harang, but Colorado designated Harang for assignment.
Insight: Harang went 10-10 with a 3.61 ERA and 1.40 WHIP last season but didn't have a spot in the Dodgers' rotation this year. The Rockies will look to trade him.
 
4/6/2013 4:45:00 PM
Description: The Rockies have traded catcher Ramon Hernandez to the Dodgers for right-hander Aaron Harang.
Insight: Harang went 10-10 with a 3.61 ERA and 1.40 WHIP last season but didn't have a spot in the Dodgers' rotation this year. This will be his third NL West team in the last three seasons, as he went 14-7 with a 3.64 ERA and 1.37 WHIP for the Padres in 2011. However, he had an extremely low 6.3 percent HR/FB last season, a number that will undoubtedly rise in the thin air of Colorado.
 
6/24/2012 8:32:00 PM
Description: Dodgers starter Aaron Harang allowed three runs on eight hits in a no decision against the Angels Sunday. He walked two and struck out none.
Insight: Harang bounced back from a horrific eight-walk start against Oakland his last time on the hill. The right-hander has walked 21 batters while striking out 24 in his last 33 2/3 innings, so he's a bit of a risk going forward.
 
6/6/2012 7:09:00 PM
Description: Dodgers starter Aaron Harang has been effective this season, going 4-3 with a 3.90 ERA in his career, but you're taking a big risk if you stream him Thursday at Philadelphia.
Insight: Harang has a 5.18 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in six career games at Citizens Bank Park. He has also pitched much better at home this season, going 1-1 with a 3.20 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in four starts at Dodgers Stadium and 3-2 with a 4.35 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in seven road starts.
 
4/8/2012 11:30:00 AM
Description: The Dodgers used a total of eight pitchers in Saturday night's 6-5 11-inning win over San Diego which means they might need Sunday's starter Aaron Harang to go deep into the game.
Insight: That's a dangerous situation if the pitcher doesn't have his best stuff. The good news is that the game is being played in cavernous Petco Park where Harang has a career 3.16 ERA in 23 games.
 
6/4/2011 11:56:00 PM
Description: Aaron Harang also won his sixth game of the season today, his fourth straight solid start in a row. Harang went 6 2/3 innings, allowing six hits and two walks. He struck out three.
Insight: Petco Park is having the effect on Harang that it has on most pitchers, its a great place to pitch. He's solid if not spectacular at the back end of your rotation. Maybe even a number three starter in a NL only league.
 
4/20/2011 9:17:00 PM
Description: Aaron Harang continued his winning streak in Wednesday's win over the Cubs
Insight: Harang's bounce-back season continues and should be added in all formats while he's pitching so well.
 
4/16/2011 9:10:00 AM
Description: Padres SP Aaron Harang improved to 3-0, picking up the win against the Astros yesterday. Harang allowed just one run over 6 innings, scattering 3 hits and a walk. He struck out 8 in the 4-1 victory.
Insight: Harang's first two victories where home at Petco Park so the fact that he did this on the road is even more impressive. A pitcher with a 0.94 WHIP, 1.50 ERA, and a 16:5 K:BB ratio is playable in any format.
 
4/6/2011 11:14:00 AM
Description: Padres SP Aaron Harang finished with six strikeouts, allowing one run on six hits and two walks in 6 innings of work. "He had all pitches working for him, which was a big thing," manager Bud Black. "They were all effective in different counts. He really did a good job changing speeds and keeping them off-balance."

Insight:
 
3/25/2011 5:19:00 AM
Description: Aaron Harang allowed three runs over five innings in his final start of spring training.
Insight: He wasn't great during spring training but he wasn't terrible either and he should be helped by Petco Park in half his regular season starts. He is worth owning in deep mixed leagues but should start the season on the bench.
