Aaron Harang will be a starting pitcher again, but not with the Dodgers.
Harang was traded Saturday morning to the Colorado Rockies, who sent the Dodgers veteran catcher Ramon Hernandez in return. Hernandez is expected to back up A.J. Ellis.
One of eight well-paid starting pitchers on the Dodger staff, Harang was sent to the bullpen against his wishes. Unlike Chris Capuano, who was met with the same fate, Harang had little experience pitching in relief.
Harang, 34, is in the second year of a two-year, $12-million contract. He pitched reasonably well for the Dodgers last season, finishing 10-10 with a 3.61 earned-run average.
