The Mets sign Aaron Harang

The Mariners designated starter Aaron Harang for assignment last week. This week he’s latched on with the Mets, albeit on a minor league deal.

Weird year for Harang. Overall he compiled a 5-11 record with a 5.76 ERA. Not great, but mixed in there were two shutouts and five starts in which he allowed just one run. So you can imagine how bad the rest of it was. He still strikes out guys and walks relatively few, but he’s homer-prone.

Put him in Citi Field and give him a better outfield defense behind him than the Mariners’ D — which has been one of the worst in the league — and the mights might get some decent starts out of him as they give him a look-see for 2014.

    Why not see what he’s got? Let’s go mights!

    Terrible news for Angels fans.
