Aaron Harang struggled in two starts since returning from the disabled list last month, allowing seven runs in 6.1 innings while falling to 6-7 with a 5.15 ERA overall this season, and today the Reds removed him from the rotation.
Edinson Volquez will take his place beginning Saturday against the Pirates after spending two weeks in the minors trying to work out the kinks following his return from Tommy John elbow surgery.
Harang declined to speak to the media, but manager Dusty Baker said he “handled it very professionally.” Harang has been almost exclusively a starter with the Reds, making just two of his 214 appearances out of the bullpen in eight seasons, but has a remarkably awful 18-38 record and 4.67 ERA in 453 innings dating back to 2008.
