Second Half Issue: Dan Haren Wants That Vesting Option

We all think the Dodgers are going to add another starting pitcher sometime before the trading deadline, but while the popular thought is David Price — the Dodgers being one of the few teams with the prospects to get him, the bankroll to afford him, and a playoff run to make it worthwhile — that’s potentially not the right direction. Another top ace would certainly be fun...

Los Angeles Dodgers trade rumors- Tampa Bay Rays edition

The Dodgers could use a versatile veteran like Ben Zobrist In what might be the biggest surprise in baseball in 2014, the Tampa Bay Rays are finally bad. They haven’t been decimated by injuries, they just cannot field a competitive team in the uber competitive AL East. Currently, the Rays are 11.5 games behind the first-place Toronto Blue Jays in the East. They will be getting...

Dan Haren’s Collapsing 2014 Dream Season

Dan Haren has now made 16 starts. His ERA is 3.83. He’s stayed healthy enough to take the ball every fifth day. If you’d been told that’s how the first three months of his season would go when he signed a mere one-year contract last November, you’d probably have been thrilled and have quickly accepted that deal. But there’s two problems with that, of course. The first is...

Diamondbacks @ Dodgers June 14, 2014: Dan Haren Is A Mess

Last night’s win was nail-biting, and tonight might not be much better as Dan Haren gets the start for the Dodgers.

He has struck out more than three batters in a start once, and more than two batters twice...

Haren, Cingrani look to overcome long ball struggles

Home runs have plagued both Dan Haren and Tony Cingrani during their recent struggles. Given Haren's issues with the long ball in recent matchups with the Cincinnati Reds, the Los Angeles Dodgers might not like his chances to sort things out in Monday night's series opener. Haren (5-4, 3.50 ERA) is 0-3 with a 4.88 ERA in his last four outings, allowing seven home runs in...

Nationals want group of prospects for Dan Haren

The Washington Nationals are willing to part with starting pitcher Dan Haren but the price will be steep. Haren, 32, passed though waivers last month and can be traded to any team. On the season Haren is just 8-11 with a 4.66 ERA and a 1.24 ERA but the 6-foot-5 right hander has thrown considerably better since the beginning of July. Since July Haren holds a 2.53 ERA and a 54/11 K...
