Dan Haren agrees with Los Angeles Dodgers


According to Ken Rosenthal at FoxSports.com, the Los Angeles Dodgers have signed right handed pitcher Dan Haren to a one year, $10 million contract with an option for 2015 that vests upon the completion of 180 innings.

Haren had a tumultuous start to his tenure with the Washington Nationals in 2013.  He posted a 6.29 ERA in five starts in April, a 4.35 ERA in six starts in May and a 9.82 ERA in four starts in June.

Haren went down with right shoulder inflammation and came back to post a 3.13 ERA over his final four starts in July, a 3.68 ERA in six starts in August and a 2.89 ERA in five starts in September.

Per Rosenthal:

Haren is a three-time All Star – once with the Oakland Athletics in 2007, and twice with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 08-09 – and was considered one of the more intriguing free agent pitchers this offseason.

Can he stay healthy?  Which Haren will the Dodgers be getting?

Los Angeles now features a rotation of Cy Young winners Clayton Kershaw and Zach Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Haren.

Haren has played 11 season in MLB for the St. Louis Cardinals, Oakland, Arizona, Los Angeles Angels, Washington Nationals and soon to be, the Dodgers.

Haren turned 33 in September and sports a career 129-111 record with a 3.74 ERA.

    I’de like to see him become the 5th starter where he belongs. Ideally, because we sign Tananka, or alternatively because Bills comes back strong.
