Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins haven't received any trade offers for Dan Haren, and aren't actively shopping him.
Haren had stated his preference to pitch for a West coast team close to his family, but there haven't been any takers thus far in the off-season. The Marlins will try to accommodate Haren if an offer comes along, but they are content if he stays in their starting rotation. Over the last three seasons, Haren has a 4.33 ERA and a 438/105 K/BB ratio over 532 1/3 innings. In the event Haren is traded, David Phelps or Brad Hand would take his spot at the back of the rotation. Jan 21 - 8:01 AM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Dan Haren intends to report to spring training with the Marlins.

Haren wasn't secretive in his desire to pitch for a team on the west coast, and there were rumblings after his trade to the Marlins that he'd consider retirement rather than pitching in Miami, but he appears to have had a change of heart. The 34-year-old posted a respectable 4.02 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 145/36 K/BB ratio over 186 innings with the Dodgers in 2014 and should find success in the spacious confines of Marlins Park.

The Marlins are still holding out hope that Dan Haren will pitch for them in 2015, according to Joe Frisaro of

Haren has been pretty adamant about his desire to pitch on the west coast or not at all, but Frisaro said he's "hearing rumblings" that the club remains hopeful that Haren will have a change of heart. The Padres and Rockies remain possibilities for a trade, but it appears the Giants' interest has waned. With pitchers and catchers reporting in a handful of weeks, we'll know if -- and where -- Haren will be pitching soon enough.
Jan 10 - 4:56 PM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that there is "no active dialogue" between the Marlins and Giants involving Dan Haren.

It was Morosi who reported earlier this week that the Giants inquired to the Marlins about Haren earlier this offseason. However, that was before they re-signed Jake Peavy, so apparently that ship has sailed. The Marlins are attempting to grant Haren's wish and deal him to a team on the West Coast.
Jan 9 - 9:31 AM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Rockies have "mild" interest in trading for Dan Haren.

Haren has let the Marlins know that he doesn't want to pitch for them, preferring to be on the West Coast with his family. Denver isn't exactly the West Coast, but it could be close enough to satisfy the veteran right-hander. The Rockies could use some rotation help, but Haren and his flyball tendencies aren't a great fit for Coors Field.
Jan 9 - 9:28 AM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Giants inquired to the Marlins about Dan Haren earlier this offseason.

It was before the Giants re-signed Jake Peavy, but it's possible they could still have interest in Haren if they're at all worried about Tim Hudson's recovery from ankle surgery. Haren landed in Miami via trade last month but has told the Marlins he has no intention of pitching for them, preferring to be on the West Coast with his family.
Jan 6 - 11:04 PM

According to's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins are working to trade Dan Haren to a West Coast team.

The 34-year-old right-hander said earlier this winter that he wouldn't pitch for a team based outside of Southern California, yet the Marlins still moved to acquire him from the Dodgers. Frisaro writes Monday that "there is a market for Haren, and the Marlins will do their best to work out a deal that accommodates both parties." Haren has threatened to retire if he's not traded out of Miami. He is due $10 million in 2015, which the Dodgers are covering.

Joe Frisaro of reports that Dan Haren informed the Marlins that his preference remains to pitch for a team on the west coast.

Haren also only wants to pitch for a club that has their spring training in Arizona. It's unclear if Haren will actually retire if the Marlins aren't able to work out a trade or if he's simply pushing to get out of Miami.
Jan 3 - 10:26 AM

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, starter Dan Haren is "holding out hope" for a trade to the Angels or Padres.

Haren told ESPN Los Angeles in November that he would rather retire than pitch for a team located outside of Southern California due to family reasons, and now that pledge will be put to the test following the December 11 trade that sent him from the Dodgers to the Marlins. Haren had an underwhelming 4.02 ERA and 145/36 K/BB ratio in 186 innings this past season for the Dodgers and a 4.67 ERA in 2013 for the Nationals, so moving him might not be all that easy for Miami. He is 34 years old.

Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said Friday that Dan Haren has yet to decide whether he'll play for the Marlins in 2015.

"He'll make his decision," Hill said. "We haven't put any timelines on it." Haren said last month that he has "no interest" in playing somewhere other than in Southern California near his family, but it sounds like he's at least considering the possibility of playing in Miami. The Marlins would like to have him, but they're covered money-wise with the Dodgers agreeing to pay Haren's $10 million salary as part of last week's trade. If Haren decides he doesn't want to play in Miami, the Marlins would look to deal him to a team in California or nearby.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Marlins may consider trading Dan Haren if he would truly rather retire than pitch for them next season.

Haren said in mid-November that he wouldn't pitch for a team outside of Los Angeles because he wants to remain close to his family, but the Dodgers moved him to the Marlins anyway in a blockbuster Winter Meetings trade. Haren, 34, hasn't announced whether he plans to stick by that statement. He should be of interest to a number of teams on the West Coast if the Marlins begin to shop him.

Dan Haren was sent from the Dodgers to the Marlins in Wednesday's seven-player deal.

Haren, who picked up his $10 million player option to remain with the Dodgers earlier this winter, could retire rather than report to the Marlins, though he indicated that he'll take a little time to make his decision. Reports indicate that the Dodgers will send the Marlins the $10 million whether Haren pitches or not. Ideally, he'd go to Miami, which is pretty much the perfect ballpark for him. It's as tough of a homer park for left-handed hitters as any in baseball.

Dan Haren is included in a potential deal that would send Dee Gordon to the Marlins for Andrew Heaney and others, per Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Last month, Haren said he would retire if the Dodgers traded him outside of Los Angeles. The club is putting him to a test by sending him about as far away from LA as possible, in a baseball sense. Haren already exercised his $10 million player option for 2015.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 06:38:00 PM

Dan Haren told Mark Saxon of ESPN on Wednesday that he won't pitch outside of Los Angeles.

In other words, he'll retire if the Dodgers trade him this winter (to a team other than the Angels). "My signing with the Dodgers last year and my decision to exercise my player option were based on my desire to play in Southern California near my family," Haren told ESPN in an email. "I had other opportunities but at this point in my career I have no interest in playing in a city away from my family."
Wed, Nov 19, 2014 04:50:00 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Dan Haren's name "has surfaced in trade talks."

Haren last month exercised his $10 million player option for 2015 in order to remain with the Dodgers, but it's possible they may try to deal him. However, Heyman notes that the southern California native could choose to retire if he's traded anywhere besides to the Angels. Haren posted a 4.02 ERA and a 145/36 K/BB ratio over 186 innings for the Dodgers this season.
