Phillies | Aaron Harang to DL

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 10:29:16 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with plantar fasciitis in his left foot Thursday, July 2. SP Chad Billingsley (shoulder) was activated from the DL in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Harang ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) had fallen on hard times of late, losing eight straight and allowing 59 hits and 36 earned runs in 46 2/3 innings over that time frame. He was due for serious regression after a nice first month and a half of the season. Only hang onto him in the deepest of NL-only leagues.

Pirates | Bucs on the prowl for upgrades

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 15:55:41 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates are looking for upgrades at first base and for their starting rotation with the trade deadline nearing. The Pirates have been scouting the Boston Red Sox and could be interested in SP Clay Buchholz and 1B Mike Napoli. Buchholz is making $12 million in 2015 and has $13.5 million club options for the next two seasons. The Pirates also may have interest in Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang as a cheap addition to their bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has shown nice improvement of late and would surely benefit from a move to the National League and to a pitcher-friendly venue. Napoli ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has 10 home runs but has been a huge disappointment otherwise, and a move to Pittsburgh would only further drop his value. Harang ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) who already has very little fantasy intrigue, would lose any value left with a move to a relief role.

Phillies | Aaron Harang beat around by Reds

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 19:40:14 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang allowed seven earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five during the Phillies' 11-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, June 9. Harang also allowed four home runs.

Fantasy Tip: Harang ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) allowed six runs -- five earned -- in his last outing, too, so at this point he should be viewed as an extremely risky start in all fantasy formats. Don't forget, Harang also started hot last season before becoming extremely inconsistent after May. Tossing for the tanking Phillies doesn't help the probability of landing FantasyScore's three-point win bonus, either.

Astros | HOU interested in Aaron Harang

Sat, 30 May 2015 10:22:21 -0700

The Houston Astros have had internal discusssions about trading for Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang.

Fantasy Tip: In 10 starts this season, Harang ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has gone 4-4 with a 1.93 ERA and a sparkling 1.03 WHIP. He has been particularly dominant at home, with a 0.61 ERA through his first four starts at Citizens Bank Park. The only downside to using him in FantasyScore is that he won't rack up very many strikeouts.

Phillies | Aaron Harang dominating at home

Thu, 14 May 2015 19:03:13 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang has a 0.61 ERA over his first four starts at home this season, the lowest among qualified starters.

Fantasy Tip: Harang ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has been solid overall this season, but he has been particularly stout at home. Don't hesitate to plug him in at FantasyScore if he has a favorable matchup.

Phillies | Another tidy outing for Aaron Harang

Thu, 14 May 2015 14:33:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang pitched eight scoreless innings with six strikeouts during his fourth win of the season over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Harang allowed just five hits and a walk in the start.

Fantasy Tip: Harang ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is now sporting a 2.02 ERA, and after a bounce-back year in 2014, he appears to be reliable low-end starter in deep fantasy formats. FantasyScore players can turn to Harang as a cheap No. 2 starter when facing a favorable matchup. However, his upside is limited in all formats due to his low strikeout upside.

Fantasy Tip: At $5,400 (or 10.8% of cap) he is a solid mid-level FantasyScore option against the Keystone State rivals.

Sun, 10 May 2015 12:13:49 -0700

Multiple teams have expressed interest in trading for Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang, according to a major league source.

Fantasy Tip: Harang ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has pitched very well this season, posting a 3-3 record with a 2.38 ERA through his first seven games for the Phils. He is also tied for the major league lead with six quality starts, making him attractive to both contending teams and FantasyScore owners looking for a bargain.

Phillies | Aaron Harang dominates old team

Mon, 04 May 2015 22:57:11 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang allowed just one run, five hits and a walk over six innings in a win against the Atlanta Braves Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: In two games against Atlanta, the team he pitched for in 2014, Harang has allowed one run and seven hits over 14 innings. Remember him in FantasyScore at $4,400 (or 8.8% of cap) next time Atlanta pops up on the schedule.

Phillies | Aaron Harang to throw Monday

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 04:30:49 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang will start Monday, April 13, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Harang ($3,000, 6% of cap) has some success against the Mets, with a 6-5 record and a 4.28 ERA in 13 career starts. He had a solid outing against the Boston Red Sox with 6 1/3 scoreless innings last week. Harang is a decent pickup at this salary.
