The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed right-handed starting pitcher Aaron Harang to a 2 year deal worth $12 million, according to Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated. The deal is assumed to be back loaded, but there’s no confirmation on that yet.
Once upon a time, Harang was a consistent workhorse type of pitcher for the Reds, posting three consecutive seasons with an ERA- below...
The Los Angeles Dodgers are nearing a deal with pitcher Aaron Harang and have agreed to a $6 million, two-year contract with utilityman Jerry Hairston Jr.
Harang, a 32-year-old right-hander, was 14-7 with a 3.64 ERA last season, his first with the San Diego Padres. He made $3.5 million, and the Padres paid $500,000 to void a $5 million player option he had exercised.

ESPN Insider’s Jim Bowden tweets that the Dodgers are nearing an agreement with free agent right-hander Aaron Harang. Dylan Hernandez just tweeted the Dodgers and Harang are "very close." With Chris Capuano already in the fold, this would slide Harang into the rotation as the fifth starter.
The first thing I like about this deal is it puts Nate Eovaldi into an...
The Winter Meetings are moving along nicely, and just this morning it was reported that two starting pitchers have agreed to pitch in the NL West, Aaron Harang and Kevin Slowey. While neither has generated the buzz that C.J. Wilson or Mark Buehrle has — and I’m not suggesting they deserve that much buzz — these moves do have fantasy significance.

The Dodgers signed Aaron Harang to a two-year deal believed to be worth $12 million. That seems high to me. The Padres did a good job of hiding Aaron’s decline by pitching him twice as much at home, where he was great, compared to the road, where he was terrible. My guess is that the Padres are very happy the Dodgers overpaid for a pitcher.
The most exciting news from the Winter Meetings in Dallas is not, as it turns out, the Dodgers’ signing of Aaron Harang, but rumors that both Managing Editor Dave Cameron and David Laurila (curator of the FanGraphs Q&A series) have been accepted into the BBWAA (or, in the case of Laurila, re-accepted). Also discussed: the Neyer Situation; the Dodgers, generally...
Per Howard Cole of the Register, the Dodgers have signed Aaron Harang to a 2-year deal, dollars currently unknown. I remember Harang mainly from his start with the A's, but he spent most of the last decade in Cincinnati following a trade for Jose Guillen, of all players. Last year, he was with the Padres, where he earned a 3.64 ERA and a 14-7 record in Petco's cavernous confines...

The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed right- handed starter Aaron Harang. Although financial details were not released, the pact is believed to be worth $12 million for two years and is pending a physical.
The Dodgers have signed 33-year old righty starting pitcher Aaron Harang to a 2-year, $12 million dollar deal. Harang pitched in 28 games (all starts) for the Padres last year and he was 14-7 with a 3.64 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. He has now pitched in 268 games (262 starts) in his first 10 years in the majors and he is 95-94 with a 4.25 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. Harang is a solid veteran...
The Los Angeles Dodgers are wasting no time at the Baseball Winter Meetings as they’ve already signed one player and have another likely on the way. They’ve already signed utility man Jerry Hairston Jr and are apparently close to a deal with pitcher Aaron Harang.
@Ken_Rosenthal: Sources: Hairston is done with #Dodgers. Passes physical. 2 yrs, 6M plus incentives.
In my opinion...
Dodgers Sign Jerry Hairston Jr.

Eric Stephen at True Blue LA has it right: by trying to stay afloat in 2012, Ned Colletti may be sinking the ship in 2013. Hurry up and buy the team, Magic!
