San Diego Padres pitcher Aaron Harang, who played for the Reds from 2003-2010, was honored by the Cincinnati Reds during this past weekend’s series with the Padres in town for his charitable contributions to Greater Cincinnati.

Harang was involved in numerous community-service projects during his Queen City tenure, including the “Miracle League Field” project, for which he donated more than $60,000. The complex, which provided a baseball field for children with disabilities, opened on his birthday of May 9 in 2009.

Harang also spearheaded “Aaron’s Aces,” which gave Reds tickets and T-shirt’s, to families of military personnel serving the United States overseas. Harang took his program to San Diego, which is one of the biggest military cities in the nation. Jay Bruce has taken over the program in Cincinnati.

Wearing uniform number 39, Harang led the National League in wins (16) and strikeouts (216) in 2006.

Harang is still a favorite of Reds fans.

During this past off-season, the Cincinnati Reds had a choice, should they pick up the $11 million option on Aaron Harang’s contract or go with their younger pitchers?

Like most teams in their position, the Reds chose to keep the money and put their fortunes in Travis Wood, Homer Bailey and Edinson Volquez.

The result has not been very good for the Reds. Wood is in the minors due to inconsistency, Bailey has been on and off the disabled list but has pitched well when healthy and Volquez has been to the minors twice to correct pitch effieciency, and control problems.

The Reds also had a huge option on veteran pitcher Bronson Arroyo, who had consistently won between 12-16 games a year for the team. They decided to keep him over Harang as well.

As for Harang, he is having a comeback season in his hometown of San Diego.

The former Reds ace pitcher, who was struggling the last three years with the Reds at 18-38, has become the ace of the Padres staff. He is 9-2 and is 4-0 with a 2.17 ERA in his past nine starts.

Recently, he beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4.

Cincinnati Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan caught former teammate Aaron Harang so many times over the past three years, that he knows location and the types of pitches he throws.

So its no surprise that Hanigan hit a three-run homer off his former teammate in the Reds 15-5 win over the Padres split squad in Peoria, Arizona.

Harang admitted after the game that he nervous facing his old team, which gave him his big league chance. He allowed seven runs and seven hits in three innings.

Chris Heisey also got in on the act, hitting a two-run homer off Harang as well.

Aaron Harang was always Mr. Reliable for the Cincinnati Reds during his career. He was the Reds opening-day starter the past five seasons. But after 3 straight injury-prone and unproductive seasons, the Reds did not pick up his option and he is now a member of his hometown San Diego Padres.

Thus, a new opening-day starter.

Reds manager Dusty Baker has selected Edinson Volquez as his opening-day starter against the Milwaukee Brewers on March 31.

Volquez, who is 27 and right-handed, made 12 starts in 2010 after returning from right elbow surgery in August 2009.

The rest of the Reds rotation will be Bronson Arroyo at #2 starter, Johnny Cueto #3. The other two spots will be decided in spring training.

Former Red Aaron Harang signs with hometown Padres

This is the 2,500th article posted to the website


News reports from California say that former Reds ace right-hander Aaron Harang has agreed to a one-year deal with the San Diego Padres.

The 6’7 Harang is a native of San Diego and spends his off seasons there.

The contract agreement is pending a physical.

The 32-year-old Harang, spent 7 1/2 years with the Cincinnati Reds, winning 16 games in 2006 and 2007. But he has struggled the past three years, going 6-7 with a 5.32 ERA last season while being bothered with back spasms.

The Reds played the ultimate professional gesture, as they allowed Harang to pitch the final regular season game at home. At that time, it was obvious that they were not going to pick up his option for 2011. He was not placed on the team’s playoff roster.

Harang became expendable because the Reds have so much pitching depth in the organization that they could afford to let him go.
