Harang owners, you have to love this news:

Jul 29 Harang (forearm) threw 31 pitches in a bullpen session before Monday's game against the Astros, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Recommendation: Harang will next throw a live batting practice session on Wednesday. "It felt really, really good," he said. "So good that I got into rapid-fire mode. I had to stop myself."
RotoWire

Harang takes a bigger step on the path to recovery when he pitches live batting practice Wednesday. While manager Dusty Baker is encouraged, he isn't looking for Harang's return for "10 days, maybe two weeks."

From Yahoo:
Mon, Aug 4 Harang (forearm) threw six shutout innings in a rehab start for Triple-A Louisville, striking out six while walking none.

Recommendation: Harang needed only 69 pitches to get through the rehab outing. He might be back by as early as the weekend.


I'm quite excited by this news. For those of you out there in leagues where Harang is an FA, go pick him up. I think he's going to finish the season very strong.

I've held out hope this whole time, but after today, I gotta ask -- droppable?

Nah. You have to give him at least 3 starts to see where he is at.

I don't know. I'm not even going to think about starting him again until I see 2 solid starts in a row. More likely, 3. So I'm looking at not playing him until late August/early September -- if everything goes well. His matchups aren't great at all -- StL, @Col next, heavy doses of Cubs, Milwaukee, StL (and Houston -- who he'd always pitched well before, but, well...so much for that :-{ ). If I can use that spot to play matchups or grab an unspectacular but solid guy like Guthrie, I'm thinking that might be the better play.

With a difficult schedule left (STL, @Col, @Hou, Pit, @Mil, @Ari, Mil, Hou), I'm considering dropping him if he doesn't notch a W in his next start. Harang owners have effectively wasted a roster spot by keeping this bum for so many starts. It'll be hard to replace his K production, but I don't want it at the expense of a ridiculous 5.11 ERA and 1.43 whip.

I own Harang.

On that note, pick up Vazquez
