Harang to Miss Wednesday’s Start

Aaron HarangAaron Harang will not make his scheduled Grapefruit League start tomorrow afternoon against the Yankees in Tampa.

Harang, 36, had his lower back wrapped this morning at Bright House Field, but he said the postponement is a “maintenance” issue related to his pitching mechanics and nothing health related. Harang said he woke up the other day and realized he needed to have a chiropractor adjust his back, which, he said, “is normal for me.”

“Right now the main focus is maintenance stuff to make sure I’m ready,” he said.

Harang, who signed a one-year, $5 million contract in the offseason, said he could start Monday against the Orioles in Sarasota. If that holds he would miss just one turn in the rotation.

Right-hander Kevin Slowey will start tomorrow at George M. Steinbrenner Field.
