Teams Calling Phillies About Aaron Harang
Harang's been very solid for the Phillies this season in 45 1/3 innings, he has a 2.38 ERA and 1.01 WHIP, plus a 31/9 K/BB ratio. With those numbers, teams are taking notice and he could be a trade chip for the Phillies this season.
From Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe:
Aaron Harang, RHP, Phillies — We’ve mentioned Harang as another possible fit for a contending team. According to a major league source, inquiries on him have picked up and teams are scouting him as a possible solution. Obviously not an ace, but he fits the back end of a lot of rotations. “He gives you a steady, dependable performance, “ said one NL scout. “You don’t give up a lot for him, but if you can get him for a second-level prospect, you do it.”
The Phillies signed Harang to a one-year, $5 million contract this offseason with some performance-based incentives and could be very valuable to teams looking for some back-end of the rotation help and a very good price.
