Babes Love Baseball:
The Los Angeles Dodgers have filled out their rotation at the winter meetings action in Dallas today, signing Aaron Harang to a two-year contract worth $12 million with a 2014 option.
The 33-year-old right-hander joins a solid rotation that already includes National League Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Ted Lilly and Chris Capuano, whose two-year contract of $10 million was signed just last week.
Harang was pretty good last season, going 14-7 with a career-low 3.64 ERA in 28 starts with the San Diego Padres, his hometown team. General manager Ned Colletti is pleased with the signing and says it gives the Dodgers "a veteran arm in the rotation." Funny... I was under the impression Lilly was about as veteran as you can get these days.
The Dodgers also traded lefty Dana Eveland to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for a couple of minor leaguers: left-hander Jarret Martin and outfielder Tyler Henson.
An 18th round pick with the Orioles in the 2009 draft, Martin was 5-12 with a 4.96 ERA in 31 games with Single-A Delmarva last season, so he sucks, but Henson batted .247 with three home runs and 36 RBI with Triple-A Norfolk in 2011. So there's that.

Maybe someday I can be an Oriole
Jon Paul Morosi is tweeting that the Dodgers have agreed to trade Dana Eveland to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for a minor league pitcher and a player to be named later. Eveland, 28, was quickly displaced in the Dodgers 2012 plans after the acquisitions of Aaron Harang and Chris Capuano. I was pegging him to be non-tendered by the Dodgers...

I’m sure a lot of fans were expecting the Orioles to do something of note at the Winter Meetings, despite the advance warnings of Dan Duquette and notes from the media. Overall, the Baltimore Orioles did very little of note in Texas. While the Miami Marlins, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and some other teams made major moves, Baltimore traded for well-traveled pitcher...
A little over a year ago, I wrote a post about the Orioles potentially acquiring 28 year-old left-handed pitcher Dana Eveland. That deal was "supposed" to be for Dennis Sarfate. Today, the O's actually traded for Eveland, picking him up from the Dodgers for pitcher Jarret Martin and outfielder Tyler Henson. Not too much from what I said about Eveland last time has...
In free agency, the Los Angeles Dodgers struck quickly signing a pair of classic 4-5 starters to stabilize the back of their big league rotation in veterans Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang. When healthy, Capuano has proven to be a solid starter over his career providing relatively strong peripherals and should prove a discount over the life of the contract if he logs even 300 innings...
If you’re looking for full coverage of the Thursday trade that sent left-hander Dana Eveland from the Dodgers to the Orioles, you won’t find it in this edition of FanGraphs Audio, because it’s mostly managing editor Dave Cameron discussing the Angels’ twin signings of Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson — and rhapsodizing on the virtues of brisket, too.
Duquette may not be done making deals as winter meetings wind downThe Orioles have completed a deal for pitcher Dana Eveland, sending a minor league pitcher and a player to be named later to the Dodgers for a journeyman left-hander who had a solid season at Triple-A Albuquerque last year and pitched well after being called up to the majors in September.
On Tuesday’s edition of our award-winning, critically acclaimed podcast, managing editor Dave Cameron suggested that Aaron Harang should donate a portion of his new $12 million contract (courtesy of the Dodgers) to the San Diego Padres. It was, after all, San Diego’s cavernous Petco Park that aided Harang in recording a career-best 3.64 ERA, even while posting an xFIP- (109)...
