Dodgers Deal Harang

Multiple sources are reporting that the Dodgers are sending Harang to Colorado for a backup backstop.

The Dodgers have announced that they have agreed to trade right-hander Aaron Harang to the Rockies for catcher Ramon Hernandez. The Rockies also receive cash considerations as part of the deal.

Harang, 34, has a career ERA of 4.19 and finished 4th in the 2007 NL Cy Young voting. The big righty signed a two year deal with the Dodgers in 2011 and posted a 3.61 ERA in 31 starts for the Dodgers in 2012. However, the veteran didn't have a spot in the 2013 rotation with the additions of Josh Beckett, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Zack Greinke over the past year.

Hernandez, 36, is a career .264 hitter with 166 home runs in 1509 games. The catcher broke in with Oakland and has been with the Reds, Orioles, Padres and Rockies during his 14+ year career. Last season, with Colorado, Ramon batted .217/.247/.353 in 52 games. He figures to be the back up to A.J. Ellis this year, with Tim Federowicz likely headed back to Albuquerque or possibly to the trade block.
