Braves sign veteran right-hander Aaron Harang
Not long after cutting ties with Freddy Garcia, the Braves have reached agreement with Aaron Harang.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Braves, despite injury concerns throughout the rotation, cut bait on veteran right-hander Freddy Garcia. Now, CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman has learned, they've signed a different veteran right-hander in Aaron Harang.
Harang, 35, was released by the Indians earlier on Monday. Last season, Harang pitched to a 5.40 ERA (68 ERA+) and 2.83 K/BB ratio in 143 1/3 innings for the Mariners and Mets. As recently as 2012, though, Harang was quite effective for the Dodgers: 3.61 ERA in 179 2/3 innings.
For his career, Harang owns an ERA+ of 98 across parts of 12 major-league seasons. As a member of the Reds in 2007, he finished fourth in the NL Cy Young balloting.
