Aaron Harang

  1. Dodgers could deal some starting pitching

    Mar 10, 2013, 8:34 PM EDT

    Ted Lilly

    A group of geese is called a gaggle. A group of lions is called a pride. What do you call the Dodgers’ collection of starting pitching? With a rotation that already includes aces Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, as well as Hyun-Jin Ryu, Chad Billingsley, and Josh Beckett, the Dodgers are in a position to…

  2. Jordan Lyles is probably losing his rotation spot

    Mar 8, 2013, 2:41 PM EDT

    Jordan Lyles

    Jordan Lyles threw a complete-game shutout against the Brewers in his final outing last season to finish 5-12 with a 5.09 ERA. Now, that doesn’t sound very impressive, but he was just 21 years old and that he was an Astro explains the win-loss record. He entered camp this year penciled in as Houston’s No.…

  3. Report: Brewers and Orioles scouted Dodgers’ right-hander Aaron Harang

    Mar 4, 2013, 7:58 PM EDT

    Aaron Harang AP

    Assuming all continues to go well with Chad Billingsley‘s elbow, the Dodgers figure to explore possible trades for Aaron Harang and Chris Capuano, who both project to begin the season in the bullpen. With that in mind, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that the Brewers and Orioles had scouts in attendance today as Harang threw…

  4. Chad Billingsley has first game action since rehabbing partially torn elbow ligament

    Feb 25, 2013, 9:33 PM EDT

    Chad Billingsley

    Today was a big day for Chad Billingsley, as he made his first appearance since he was shut down last August with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Billingsley was roughed up by the Cubs in the first inning, allowing two doubles, a home run and a single to the four…

  5. Dodgers and Red Sox showing interest in Joel Hanrahan

    Dec 19, 2012, 8:55 PM EDT

    joel hanrahan getty

    Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com has the scoop: The Dodgers are showing interest in Pirates closer Joel Hanrahan, but they have a little company. The Red Sox are said to have an interest as well. The Bucs would presumably want a starting pitcher (or multiple starting pitchers) in return, which makes the Dodgers a nice fit because they’re looking to unload both Chris…

  6. Dodgers sign Korean lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu for $36 million

    Dec 9, 2012, 5:27 PM EDT

    Ryu Hyun-Jin

    For all of the bluster, there was never really any doubt this would get done: the Dodgers signed Korean left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu just before the Sunday afternoon deadline. CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman reports that it’s a six-year, $36 million contract that includes an opt out after five years if Ryu tops a certain number of innings.…

  7. Dodgers could look to trade Chris Capuano or Aaron Harang

    Nov 12, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Chris Capuano

    If the Dodgers end up signing Korean left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu they’ll have a rotation logjam and Ken Gurnick of MLB.com writes that the “most likely” starters to be shopped for a trade are Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang. Because the timing of a potential trade may depend on the health status of Ted Lilly and…

  8. Dodgers looking to add starting pitching, Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez “on their list”

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:14 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    A potential reunion between the Dodgers and Hiroki Kuroda is one thing, but Jayson Stark of ESPN.com reports that Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez are also “on their list” as Los Angeles looks to add starting pitching. Los Angeles’ payroll is already around $200 million, so making a serious run at Greinke or even Sanchez…

  9. Clayton Kershaw could pitch Sunday if doctors clear him

    Sep 21, 2012, 10:02 PM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw Getty

    Clayton Kershaw threw a 20-pitch bullpen session this afternoon and manager Don Mattingly indicated that there’s a chance he could return from a hip injury to start for the Dodgers as soon as Sunday. That would be a huge change from just a few days ago, when the Dodgers feared Kershaw might need season-ending hip…

  10. Clayton Kershaw scratched, might need hip surgery

    Sep 15, 2012, 7:27 PM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw

    Clayton Kershaw was terrific while pitching with his sore hip Tuesday, but he wasn’t feeling well enough to give it another go Sunday against the Cardinals. The Dodgers scratched him today and announced that he’d see a specialist on Tuesday. Stephen Fife will pitch in his place in the finale of a four-game series. The…

  11. Sore elbow puts Chad Billingsley on 60-day disabled list

    Sep 5, 2012, 6:52 PM EDT

    Chad Billingsley

    As of a couple of days ago, the Dodgers were holding out hope that Chad Billingsley might be able to contribute as a reliever later this month. That dream is now dead, as he was transferred from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list on Wednesday. Left-hander Steven Rodriguez, a 2012 second-round pick who was…

  12. Breaking down the Red Sox-Dodgers megadeal

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:32 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez

    If FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi is correct, the Red Sox and Dodgers have agreed to the following nine-player deal: To L.A.: Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, Nick Punto To Boston: Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster, Jerry Sands, Ivan De Jesus, James Loney It’s not official yet, as the Red Sox still need Crawford and…

  13. The 2012 and 2013 Dodgers if the megadeal goes through

    Aug 24, 2012, 6:45 PM EDT

    Hanley Ramirez, Matt Kemp, Shane Victorino

    Assuming the Josh Beckett-Adrian Gonzalez-Carl Crawford trade gets done, here’s what the Dodgers are going to look like as they go down the stretch in 2012 and what the Opening Day 2013 lineup could look like: 2012 Rotation: Clayton Kershaw Chad Billingsley Chris Capuano Josh Beckett Aaron Harang Lineup: LF Shane Victorino 2B Mark Ellis…

  14. Ted Lilly scratched from rehab start after setback with shoulder

    Aug 3, 2012, 8:25 PM EDT

    Ted Lilly Getty

    The Dodgers acquired Joe Blanton from the Phillies late this afternoon in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. While it’s certainly not the flashiest of moves, the acquisition makes even more sense now that Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A. is reporting that Ted Lilly was scratched from a rehab…

  15. Ryan Dempster tells Cubs he’d approve trade to Dodgers, Yankees, Rangers

    Jul 31, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Ryan Dempster

    UPDATE: Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reports that Dempster has informed the Cubs he’d waive his 10-and-5 trade veto rights for deals to the Dodgers, Yankees, and Rangers. In other words, Los Angeles has competition. ========== Ryan Dempster vetoed a potential deal to the Braves last week, leading to all sorts of drama, but it…

  16. Yovani Gallardo fans career-high 14 in beating Pirates

    Jul 15, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Yovani Gallardo

    Given some extra rest around the All-Star break, Yovani Gallardo came out firing today, striking out a career-high 14 batters while allowing one run over seven innings against the Pirates. Brewers pitching fanned 17 batters in all in Milwaukee’s 4-1 victory. It’s the fifth time this year a team has recorded 17 or more strikeouts…

  17. Reviewing the rotations; Nats, Dodgers lead the way

    Jun 18, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    David Price

    A couple of months before the season, I used my Rotoworld projections to rank the rotations, based strictly on ERA, from 1-30. Let’s look at that list now and see where each team starters’ measure up about 40 percent of the way through the season. Projected rank – Team – Current rank 1. Phillies: 3.39…

  18. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 8, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    Norichika Aoki

    Brewers 4, Cubs 3: Norichika Aoki hit two homers including the walkoff. Overall, he’s kicking some major butt. Mets 3, Nationals 1: As I said yesterday: Dickey beats Wang. I’m still giggling, by the way. Pirates 5, Reds 4: Aroldis Chapman finally allowed a run. You see? You see? He’s not a machine, he’s a man, he’s a man!  Someone alert…

  19. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    May 18, 2012, 5:58 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 7, Marlins 0: Brandon Beachy: the best pitcher you haven’t heard of. He shuts out the Marlins on five hits and ups his record to 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA. Giants 7, Cardinals 5: Bad Cardinal defense and a little more offense than usual gave the Giants some runs on a day when Matt…

  20. Cliff Lee shuts out the Giants for ten innings, Phillies lose

    Apr 19, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v San Francisco Giants

    Blast living in the eastern time zone. For, because I went to bed at a reasonable hour, I missed an unreasonably good pitching matchup: Cliff Lee vs. Matt Cain, each of whom shut the other side out for nine innings. Those nine innings took only one hour and fifty-minutes, by the way. The difference: Cliff…

  21. Aaron Harang falls just short of history with nine consecutive strikeouts

    Apr 13, 2012, 11:26 PM EDT

    Aaron Harang Getty

    Aaron Harang led the National League in strikeouts way back in 2006 as a member of the Reds, but we certainly don’t think of him a strikeout-type anymore. Some blame Dusty Baker for killing his arm, but the 33-year-old right-hander has averaged just 6.6 K/9 over the past two seasons. Still, he came very close…

  23. Running down the rosters: Los Angeles Dodgers

    Feb 15, 2012, 5:56 PM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw, Matt Kemp

    Quantity over quality was the theme of the Dodgers’ winter. The team signed nine free agents for this year’s roster, none of whom will cost more than $4 million in 2012. Let’s dig right in… Rotation Clayton Kershaw Chad Billingsley Ted Lilly Aaron Harang Chris Capuano Bullpen Javy Guerra Kenley Jansen Matt Guerrier Todd Coffey…

    Jan 24, 2012, 6:48 PM EDT

    Baseball player Albert Pujols wears an Angels cap after he is introduced by the Los Angeles Angels during a news conference at Angels Stadium in Anaheim

    In light of the Prince Fielder signing, here’s an updated look at how this year’s top 111 free agents have fared. 1. Albert Pujols (Cardinals): Angels – 10 years, $254 million 2.

    The Yankees are set to acquire right-hander Michael Pineda from the Mariners in a four-player deal, but they aren’t done improving their rotation. Jack Curry of YES Network reports that they have agreed to terms with Hiroki Kuroda on a one-year deal worth between $10-11 million, pending a physical. ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that it’s…
