Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang (back) was scratched from his start Friday, March 13, because he had lower back discomfort. The team said was precautionary, and Harang is considered day-to-day.
Fantasy Tip: Harang tossed 25 quality starts through his 33 starts and returned 12 wins, 161 strikeouts and a 3.57 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP over 204 1/3 innings last season. While they're respectable numbers, banking on Harang as anything more than a low-end spot starter in mixed leagues is ill-advised. Even in NL-only formats, Harang has minimal fantasy value.

Atlanta Braves SP Aaron Harang struck out nine batters while allowing just six hits and one unearned run over seven innings in a win against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, Sept. 10. Harang credited re-watching previous starts along with recent bullpen sessions for his turnaround performance. "The ball wasn't coming out of my hand the way I wanted it to. I was really having to force things. I went out there and felt good today," Harang said.

Atlanta Braves SP Ervin Santana will pitch Friday, July 18, the team's first game after the All-Star break, against the Philadelphia Phillies, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez. Gonzalez has not confirmed the rotation after Santana, but said it depends on if SP Julio Teheran will get one or two days of extra rest. Teheran will pitch Saturday, July 19, or Sunday, July 20. Expect left-handed SPs Mike Minor and Alex Wood to be split up in the rotation and not pitch consecutively. Wood and Minor will either pitch the second and fourth or the third and fifth games out of the break. SP Aaron Harang will pitch the fourth or fifth game coming out of the break.
Fantasy Tip: Santana gets an excellent chance to start strong in the second half against the Phillies' weak offense. Otherwise, check back for further details, but the Miami Marlins head to Atlanta Monday, July 21, which is another plus-matchup.

David O'Brien, of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, believes the Atlanta Braves will look to trade for at least one relief pitcher in the coming weeks before the trade deadline. Atlanta is reluctant to trade a starting pitcher for a reliever, though, but SPs Aaron Harang or Gavin Floyd may be candidates to be shipped out. Floyd is more likely to be moved because of the way Harang has pitched this year. Also, Floyd has incentives that could raise his deal by $3 or $4 million.

Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez indicated Tuesday, May 13, that he will keep all six of his starting pitchers in the rotation for the next turn. SPs Aaron Harang, Gavin Floyd, Mike Minor and Julio Teheran will pitch with two extra days' rest next week.

While nothing has been made official, the Atlanta Braves will include SP Gavin Floyd in the rotation, meaning someone will be bumped out. SP Alex Wood seems like the most likely candidate to head to the bullpen over SPs Aaron Harang, Mike Minor, Ervin Santana and Julio Teheran.

Atlanta Braves SP Aaron Harang tossed seven no-hit innings against the New York Mets Friday, April 18, but was removed from the game by manager Fredi Gonzalez because he had thrown 121 pitches. "I want him pitching 27 more times," Gonzalez said. "If it was the ninth inning, maybe, think about it. It gets to the point you chase that no-hitter, chase that dragon, you're up to 140 pitches. I think we made the right decision." Harang walked six batters and struck out five, while improving to 3-1 on the season.
