CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Phillies right-hander Aaron Harang will not make his scheduled Grapefruit League start Wednesday (1:05 p.m. ET on MLB.TV and MLB Network) against the Yankees in Tampa.
Harang, 36, had his lower back wrapped Tuesday morning at Bright House Field, but he said the decision to delay his spring debut 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."
