Harang works on throwing progam

MILWAUKEE -- Injured Reds starter Aaron Harang (lower back spasms) has resumed a throwing program in Cincinnati. A target return date remains very much up in the air, however.

"No clue," Reds manager Dusty Baker said Wednesday. "By all rights, he should be stronger down the stretch if he can get his sharpness back. We were fighting it for a while. He'll have to go out and have a rehab assignment to get his endurance up and get everything together. It's an important stretch for us and for him."

Harang has not pitched since his June 30 start against the Phillies.

"I heard he's feeling good," Baker said. "I'm glad we had the backup we have when he went down. Or we'd be up the creek."
