The Dodgers have began exploring a possible trade with the Cincinnati Reds for pitcher Aaron Harang, according to multiple baseball sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the talks. Harang, a 31-year-old right-hander, finished fourth in NL Cy Young Award voting in 2007 and tied for the league lead in wins in 2006 with 16. The Reds are asking for one or two players on the Dodgers' major league roster in return. The Dodgers would want the Reds to pay for a portion of the $15 million Harang would be guaranteed if he is traded. Harang is owed $12.5 million in 2010 and has a $12.75-million club option for 2011 with a $2-million buyout.
