Harang was technically with four organizations last year, but he spent the majority of his time with the Mariners, posting a 5.76 ERA and 87/28 K/BB ratio over 120 1/3 innings over 22 starts. The 35-year-old was released in August and soon latched on with the Mets, where he posted a 3.52 ERA and 26/12 K/BB ratio across four starts.
Harang doesn’t get as many swings and misses as he used to and he’s still a fly ball pitcher, but he can eat up some innings in the backend of a rotation. He’ll give Cleveland some depth this spring.
