The Phillies have signed right-hander Aaron Harang to a one-year, $5 million contract, Senior Vice President & General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced today. The contract includes performance and awards bonuses.

“Aaron brings a wealth of experience and durability to our rotation,” said Amaro. “He had a very solid season for the Braves last year and will complement the left-handers in our rotation nicely.”
Originally selected by the Texas Rangers in the sixth round of the 1999 draft, Harang has a career record of 122-128 with a 4.21 ERA in 358 games (352 starts) for the Oakland A’s (2002-03), Cincinnati Reds (2003-10), San Diego Padres (2011), Los Angeles Dodgers (2012), Seattle Mariners (2013), New York Mets (2013) and Braves (2014).
