The Padres have finalized their contract with Aaron Harang. According to Corey Brock of MLB.com, it turns out he’ll receive a one-year, $3.5 million contract with a mutual option for 2012.
Harang, a San Diego-native, is 18-38 with a 4.71 ERA since finishing fourth on the ballot for the National League Cy Young in 2007. The 32-year-old right-hander went 6-7 with a 5.32 ERA over 22 games (20 starts) with the Reds this past season and was left off the team’s postseason roster for the NLDS against the Phillies.
Harang’s peripherals, which have been pretty healthy in the past, took a bit of a slide this past season, but he’s well worth signing at these terms. While his flyball tendencies hurt him at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him rebound next season pitching half of his games at the cozy confines of PETCO Park.
