With Chad Billingsly slated to come off the disabled list on Wednesday, the Dodgers traded veteran pitcher Aaron Harang to the Colorado Rockies for equally veteran but not as prosperous catcher Ramon Hernandez. The move sends Harang, who has not pitched this year, to the Rockies with $7 million dollars, while no reports of gaining payroll from the $2.3 million owed to Hernandez. This move likely puts youngin’  Tim Federowicz out and back down to AAA. Ramon figures to be the backup to A.J. Ellis, hasn’t seen a productive year behind the plate since 2006 where he hit belted a career high 95 RBI’s and 23 home runs. This is an interesting as the league is starved for pitching, I feel like they could have gotten a bit more for Harang. Hernandez was optioned by the Rockies, so if he can’t cut it as a 2nd string over there, how is that going to look here? All they can hope for is a veteran catcher helping A.J Ellis into another productive season. On the plus side, Chad Billingsly will made a bigger splash than Harang multiplied by Hernandez, so I guess it will work out. The next question is what to do with Chris Capuano?
