Plan for Harang not revealed

Plan for Harang not revealed

|
CINCINNATI -- With Wednesday's 14-6 loss, during which he allowed seven runs and 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings, Aaron Harang fell to 0-3 with an 8.31 ERA in four starts. Harang allowed 29 hits and 22 runs, including six home runs, in 21 2/3 innings.

The Reds essentially have three options with Harang. They can move him to the bullpen, skip his next turn so he can work on his stuff, or stick with him. The club has an off-day on Monday, which would fall on Harang's regular turn.

If there is a plan going forward, manager Dusty Baker isn't sharing it. But it certainly didn't sound like Harang was leaving the rotation.

"I can't tell you before I talk to him," Baker said. "Plus, we're talking about it. But this guy is getting paid handsomely [$12.5 million] to be a starter. At this point, who do you have to take his place? And we need him to win. It's four starts. If it was 14 starts, it'd be a different thing."
