 Biographical Information
On July 23, 2007, Aaron Harang pitched a 10-inning no-decision against the Milwaukee Brewers. He had just returned from bereavement leave following the death of his grandfather. He was the first Cincinnati Reds pitcher to throw 10 or more innings in a game since Rick Mahler in 1989.
Harang was traded twice in the span of one week in 2013. First, he failed to secure a starting job with the Los Angeles Dodgers in spring training, even after going 10-10, 3.61 in 31 starts and 179 1/3 innings in 2012. On April 6th, he was sent to the Colorado Rockies in return for C Ramon Hernandez. The Rockies had no intention of using him however, simply wanting to get rid of Hernandez's salary, and immediately designated Harang for assignment with the intention of trading him again. They found a taker on April 11th, sending him to the Seattle Mariners in return for minor leaguer Steven Hensley. Ironically, he had been on the Mariners' radar screen for a while, but they had been unable to agree on a deal with the Dodgers. On June 11, 2013, he pitched one of the best games of his career for the Mariners, with a complete game two-hit shutout over the Houston Astros, 4-0. Overall, though, his season was less than stellar, as indicated b y his record of 5-11 and 5.76 ERA in 22 starts. After giving up seven runs in three of his last five starts, he was released on September 1st, but was immediately signed by the New York Mets, who assigned him to the AAA Las Vegas 51s. He then made four starts for the Mets, going 0-1 with a 3.52 ERA. Between the two stops, he was 5-12, 5.40 in 143 1/3 innings.
He is the brother of minor leaguer Daryl Harang.
