Mariners Release Aaron Harang

SUNDAY, 9:20am: The MLB transactions page reflects that Harang has been released.

MONDAY, 5:18pm: The Mariners announced that they have designated Aaron Harang for assignment.  In a related move, outfielder Franklin Gutierrez has been activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Harang, 35, had a 5.76 ERA with 6.5 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9 in 22 starts this season.  The veteran had solid numbers with the Padres and Rockies in the previous two seasons (3.62 ERA with 6.6 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9) but has been unable to replicate that with the M's.  He could be on his way to joining a fourth team in 2013 – the Dodgers traded Harang to the Rockies for Ramon Hernandez in April and Colorado flipped him to the M's just days later.  Harang's stay with in Colorado was brief, however, and he never got to pitch for the Rockies.
