Downside To Each Team’s Biggest Free Agent Signing: National League

Philadelphia Phillies: Aaron Harang
The Phillies are a hot mess right now and their best free agent pickup is a 36-year old pitcher who is slightly below .500 over 14 seasons in the Majors. Harang has finished the season with more wins than losses only once since 2008 and even if he bring a veteran presence and eats innings, it’s hard to see him making that huge a difference when it comes to winning and losing. Philadelphia is the seventh stop for Harang over the past six seasons and the best case scenario in this situation is that the Phillies are able to ship him off for something at the deadline if he does impress.  There is a lot that can go wrong here.
