Dodgers, Aaron Harang Making Progress On Deal

5:27pm: Talks between the two sides are still progressing, with terms in the ballpark of two years and $12MM, tweets Rosenthal.

2:23pm: The Dodgers are making progress on a deal with starter Aaron Harang, tweet Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.  The deal is expected to be for two years, tweets Morosi.  Jim Bowden of ESPN and MLB Network Radio adds that the two sides are close to an agreement.  Bowden says the two sides have agreed to terms but are just waiting on dotting i's and crossing t's.

Harang, 33, aimed to remain on the West Coast after spending 2011 in his native San Diego.  The Dodgers signed Chris Capuano earlier this month.  The two veterans would complement a rotation that includes Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, and Ted Lilly.    

Harang posted a 3.64 ERA, 6.5 K/9, 3.1 BB/9, 1.05 HR/9, and 40.6% groundball rate in 170 2/3 innings for the Padres this year, earning $4MM.
