According to Mark Saxon on Twitter, the Los Angeles Dodgers have contacted right handed pitcher Dan Haren’s agent.
He also said that there’s some mutual interest between the two, which could possibly work out for the team next year. Depending on the type of deal, Haren would be a great addition to their rotation as they already have Kershaw and Greinke.
Haren has bounced from team to team in his 11 year career as he’s played for the St. Louis Cardinals, Oakland Athletics, Arizona Diamondbacks, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Washington Nationals being the most recent team.
This season, the 33 year old starting pitcher put up his second highest ERA of his career (4.67) as he finished the year 10-14 with 151 strike outs and a 1.24 WHIP. Haren was able to get through 169 2/3 innings through 30 starts.
The Dodgers will be looking to add some more depth in their rotation and bullpen to help match the offense that this team has been able to provide. I honestly picked the Dodgers to win it all, but we all know that didn’t work out too well.
So what do you think Dodgers fans, should they bring Haren on board or look elsewhere?
@dodgers have been in contact with Dan Haren’s agent. Hard to tell if the fit is right but there’s some interest on both sides
