Harang is now 12-12 with a 3.57 ERA, but almost lost his victory, as Craig Kimbrel loaded the bases in the ninth.

Insight: Harang (5-6, 3.83 ERA, 1.38 WHIP) has thrown 12 quality starts in 15 turns through the rotation this season but allowed 32 hits and 21 earned runs over 15 innings in his three worst outings. It's only a matter of time before the team brings talented young left-hander Alex Wood back up to replace Harang in the rotation.

Description: Braves starter Aaron Harang came back to Earth Wednesday at Miami, allowing nine earned runs on 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings.
Insight: Harang only allowed three earned runs in his first 31 2/3 innings, but fantasy owners should have known it wasn't going to last. His career ERA in nearly 2,000 innings is above 4.20 and he's never had one lower than 3.61 in any season.
 
Hot4/23/2014 4:20:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Aaron Harang pitched well in a no-decision Wednesday against Miami.
Insight: This wasn't the gem he threw last week against the Mets (7 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 5 K's) but Harang (3-1) was still plenty effective, racking up a season-high 11 strikeouts and allowing just one run over six innings. His 0.85 ERA this season leads the National League.
 
Hot4/18/2014 10:16:00 PM
Description: Atlanta right-hander Aaron Harang tossed seven no-hit innings Friday in a win against the Mets.
Insight: Harang's pitch count got to 121 so Luis Avilan relieved him in the eighth. It's the second time this season Harang (7 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 5 K's, 6 BB) has taken a no-hitter past the fifth inning. He's off to a tremendous start (3-1, 0.70 ERA) and should probably be owned in most formats.
 
Hot4/8/2014 10:36:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Aaron Harang struck out nine batters in six innings Tuesday against the Mets.
Insight: He allowed just two hits, walked four and gave up one run to take a tough-luck loss. The 35-year-old has given up only four hits and one run in his first 12 2/3 innings this season. He's unlikely to keep it up.
 
4/2/2014 7:59:00 PM
Description: Aaron Harang took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in his Braves debut Wednesday at Milwaukee.
Insight: The Braves picked up Harang in late March and had to put him in their rotation due to numerous injuries. He had a 5.40 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP in 143 1/3 innings last season and isn't worth adding in fantasy.

Description: The Braves have signed right-hander Aaron Harang to a one-year deal. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal, Fox Sports
Insight: Harang was released by Cleveland less than 24 hours ago. He's actually pitched pretty well this spring with two wins and a 2.00 ERA in four appearances. The Braves really just need a healthy body now that Kris Medlen (elbow) and Brandon Beachy (elbow) are both out for the season.
 
2/15/2014 2:08:00 PM
Description: Righthander Aaron Harang will attend spring training with the Indians. SOURCE: Paul Hoynes, Cleveland Plain Dealer
Insight: It's anyone's guess whether he'll make the team. If he does, we wouldn't count on him as a fantasy option after posting a 5.40 ERA in 26 starts in 2013.
 
9/2/2013 9:23:00 AM
Description: Journeyman Aaron Harang has signed a minor league deal with the Mets.
Insight: He's been assigned to the team's Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas. The 35-year-old gives the Mets depth but little else. He hasn't been a factor in fantasy since winning 16 games for the Reds back in 2007.
 
8/26/2013 7:40:00 PM
Description: The Mariners designated righthander Aaron Harang for assignment on Monday.
Insight: Harang's tenure with the M's lasted all of four months. He's an innings eater so he shouldn't be on the market for too long.
