Dodgers deal Harang to Roxckies for Hernandez

Associated Press  |  Last updated April 06, 2013
The Dodgers have traded pitcher Aaron Harang to the Colorado Rockies for former All-Star catcher Ramon Hernandez and cash. General manager Ned Colletti says Saturday's deal gives the Dodgers another backup at catcher behind starter A.J. Ellis. Hernandez has a career average of .264 with 166 home runs, 751 RBI and 1,335 hits during his 14-year career with Oakland, San Diego, Baltimore, Cincinnati and the Rockies. Colorado, which owed him $3.2 million, designated him for assignment on March 29. The 36-year-old catcher was an All-Star in 2003 and averaged 118 games behind the plate from 2000-11. Only A.J. Pierzynski has caught more games and more innings than Hernandez, who has caught nearly 12,000 innings during his career. Harang hadn't appeared in a game for the Dodgers this season. He was 10-10 with a 3.61 ERA in 31 starts last season. The right-hander is 105-104 with a 4.19 ERA in 11 seasons with Oakland, Cincinnati, San Diego and the Dodgers.
