Camino said, Harang was notified by the Indians yesterday.
Harang posted a 5-12 record last year with a 5.40 ERA.
Tom Withers of the Associated Press reported the Indians have won their arbitration case against RHP Josh Tomlin.
Done with skeleton for moment. #Indians RHP Josh Tomlin will receive $800,000 this year rather than $975,000 after losing arbitration case.

Tomlin was asking for $975,000, but the Indians were able to win the case at $800,000.
After having elbow ligament-replacement surgery in August 2012, Tomlin only had one appearance in 2013 pitching two scoreless innings against the Chicago White Sox.
