Dodgers Sign Aaron Harang to Two Year Deal

by @ 5:50 pm. Filed under 2012 Dodgers

The Dodgers signed right handed starter Aaron Harang to a two year, $12 million deal.  Harang found new life with the San Diego Padres last year after a rough finish to his time in Cincinnati.  Still, Petco Park is a pitchers haven so it’ll be interesting to see how much of his success was a solid comeback and how much was the pitchers park.

Harang gets $3 million in 2012, $7 million in 2013 and then there’s a vesting option for 2014 if he throws at least 360 innings over the two seasons.  Harang was 14-7 last year with a 3.64 ERA but it was his first good season since way back in 2007.  To put it into perspective his 3.64 ERA was just a 98 ERA+ because that adjusts for park factors so he was about an average pitcher.  Fortunately Chavez Ravine is more of a pitchers park as well, just not in Petco’s league.
