Aaron Harang was solid in a no-decision as the Phillies beat the Nationals on Sunday, allowing two runs in six innings.

Both runs came in the second inning on solo home runs by Ian Desmond and Matt den Dekker. They were two of five hits he gave up along with a walk and two strikeouts. The right-hander has pitched well in his last three starts but still has ugly numbers: a 4.86 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP, and a 106/50 K/BB ratio over 166 2/3 innings. Harang will finish out his season at home against the Marlins.
Sep 27 - 4:56 PM

Aaron Harang yielded two runs in seven innings, picking up the win on Tuesday against the Marlins.

Harang won for the first time since July 30, a span of eight starts. He had a shutout until allowing a two-run home run to Miguel Rojas with two outs in the seventh. Overall, he gave up seven hits and walked two while striking out three. Harang, in a disappointing year, is 6-15 with a 4.93 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP, and a 104/49 K/BB ratio over 160 2/3 innings. He'll pitch the Phillies' final road game of the season in the nation's capital against the Nationals.
Sep 22 - 10:47 PM

Aaron Harang took a no-decision in Sunday's win against the Cubs, serving up three runs in five innings.

The first two runs came on RBI singles in the first and fourth innings, but Chris Coghlan swatted a no-doubt home run to right field to finish off Harang's afternoon. He gave up six hits and a walk while striking out five on the afternoon. The right-hander's ERA remains high at 5.04 with a 1.41 WHIP and a 101/47 K/BB ratio over 143 2/3 innings. Harang will take the hill in Atlanta against the Braves over the weekend.
Sep 13 - 4:45 PM

Aaron Harang lost to the Braves on Monday, giving up five runs over five innings.

Freddie Freeman belted a two-run home run off of Harang in the first inning, and the Braves rallied for three more runs in the fourth. The right-hander allowed eight hits, walked three, and struck out six. It's the fourth time in his last six starts that he has allowed five-plus runs. Harang will bring an ugly 5.02 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 96/46 K/BB ratio over 148 2/3 innings into a weekend home start against the Cubs.
Sep 7 - 9:47 PM

Aaron Harang gave up four runs in 4 2/3 innings but got a no-decision as the Phillies pounded their way to a win over the Mets on Tuesday.

Harang was pitching well, holding the Mets scoreless through four. But the Mets rallied to plate four runs and chase the right-hander with two outs in the fifth, ending with a two-run Yoenis Cespedes home run. Overall, he gave up five hits and a walk while striking out four. Harang carries an unimpressive 4.89 ERA with a 1.38 WHIP and a 90/43 K/BB ratio over 143 2/3 innings. He'll open up a homestand versus the Braves next week.
Sep 1 - 10:52 PM

Aaron Harang struggled with his control in a Saturday no-decision against the Marlins, walking four and allowing two runs over seven innings.

Harang might have walked four, but he limited the damage by allowing just two hits. Both runs on his line scored in the third inning, when Derek Dietrich notched a two-run double. For the season, the 37-year-old right-hander holds a 4.67 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 86/39 K/BB ratio over 133 innings. Up next on his schedule, a home start against the division-leading Mets.
Aug 22 - 10:16 PM

Aaron Harang found tough sledding in Sunday's loss to the Brewers, allowing six runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings.

In a showdown between two of the worst teams in baseball, the Brewers proved to be less awful, earning a weekend sweep with Sunday's demolition of Aaron Harang. Harang had allowed just one heading into the fifth inning, but things went south on him in that frame. An Elian Herrera RBI single made the score 2-0 Brew Crew and a Ryan Braun grand slam upped that advantage by four more runs and ended Harang's afternoon on a tough note. The owner of a 4.79 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 83/35 K/BB ratio across 126 innings, he'll take to the road against the Marlins in his next scheduled start.
Aug 16 - 5:34 PM

Aaron Harang was smoked for eight runs in 5 1/3 innings in Monday's loss in Arizona to the Diamondbacks.

Harang may as well have been throwing batting practice. The D'Backs pounded him for 12 hits -- including two home runs -- and a walk while the right-hander struck out four. The Phillies signed Harang with the hope of trading him, but he was injured earlier in the season and now has an unimpressive 4.52 ERA with a 1.37 WHIP and an 81/34 K/BB ratio over 121 1/3 innings. He'll make a road start against the Brewers next.
Aug 11 - 12:54 AM

Aaron Harang yielded four runs in five innings to the Dodgers on Wednesday, earning his 12th loss.

Harang was victimized by Yasiel Puig in the first inning for a three-run home run, accounting for most of the damage. Adrian Gonzalez knocked in what proved to be the game-winning run with a ground out in the fifth. The right-hander gave up seven hits and walked five while striking out only one batter. Harang owns a 4.11 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP and a 77/33 K/BB ratio over 116 innings, which he'll bring into a road start versus the Diamondbacks next.
Aug 5 - 11:01 PM

Aaron Harang won in his return from the DL after allowing one run and nine hits over five innings against the Braves.

The Phillies had lost Harang's last nine starts before he landed on the DL. The Braves had lost Shelby Miller's last seven starts. So, something had to give tonight. It turned out to be the Phillies' streak. Harang wasn't exactly dominant, but then, he's Aaron Harang. He seems like a poor bet in NL-only leagues the rest of the way.
Jul 30 - 10:46 PM

Phillies activated RHP Aaron Harang from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll take the roster spot of Jonathan Papelbon, who was dealt to the Nationals this week. Harang was originally slated to make a minor league rehab start Wednesday, but he'll actually make his return Thursday against the Braves. The veteran right-hander has been out for nearly a month with plantar fasciitis.
Jul 30 - 4:54 PM

Aaron Harang (foot) will rejoin the Phillies' rotation on Thursday against the Braves.

Harang had been slated for a rehab start, but the Phils decided to go ahead and plug him back into the rotation since they needed a starter with Cole Hamels being pushed back. The right-hander has missed four weeks of action with plantar fasciitis and figures to be on a fairly limited pitch count.
Jul 29 - 1:51 PM

Aaron Harang (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

Assuming he doesn't have a setback, it's expected to be his lone rehab outing before rejoining the Phillies' rotation. Harang has missed nearly a month of action with plantar fasciitis.
Jul 26 - 1:29 PM

Aaron Harang (foot) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

If all goes well, he will then be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment. Harang has been on the shelf since July 2 due to plantar fasciitis. He's on track to rejoin the Phillies rotation in early August.
