Aaron Harang on verge of becoming a Dodger
The bankrupt ballclub is expected to finalize a contract with Aaron Harang on Wednesday, when the right-hander is scheduled to undergo a physical examination, according to people familiar with the situation.
The deal would be worth $12 million over two seasons, according to multiple reports.
When Harang's signing becomes official, the Dodgers will have five starters signed not only for the upcoming season, but for 2013.
The development clouds the future of 21-year-old Nathan Eovaldi, a hard-throwing right-hander who was impressive in six major-league starts last season.
General Manager Ned Colletti said he still views Eovaldi as a starter, but acknowledged there is a possibility he could move to the bullpen.
