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. Dec 15 - 11:58 AM

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.

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."

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.
Nov 14 - 1:23 PM

Dan Haren has exercised his $10 million player option for 2015.

The option already vested after Haren crossed the 180-inning threshold in late-September, but he still had to make a decision about whether to exercise it or test free agency. The veteran right-hander ultimately decided to stick around for another year. Haren had arthroscopic surgery on his left (non-throwing) shoulder earlier this month, but he should be fully-healed by spring training.
Oct 30 - 5:46 PM

Dan Haren underwent arthroscopic surgery Wednesday afternoon on his left shoulder.

It was a minor procedure on his non-throwing arm, and Haren should be fully recovered by the beginning of spring training next February. His $10 million option for 2015 vested near the end of the September, so the soft-tossing right-hander will presumably have a spot in the Los Angeles rotation next year. Haren registered a 2.09 ERA over his final seven starts in 2014.
Oct 22 - 4:05 PM

Dan Haren will be available in emergency relief for Game 3 of the NLDS on Monday in St. Louis.

Haren is penciled in as the Dodgers' Game 4 starter, but Game 3 starter Hyun-Jin Ryu hasn't pitched in nearly a month due to a left shoulder injury so Haren will be on standby if something goes wrong. The Dodgers could then roll with Clayton Kershaw on short rest in Game 4. The best-of-five NLDS is currently tied 1-1.
Oct 6 - 8:50 AM

Dan Haren allowed two runs in five innings Sunday against the Rockies.

Haren left with a three-run lead, but the bullpen couldn't make it stand up on a night in which Kenley Jansen was unavailable. Haren ends the year 13-11 with a 4.02 ERA and a 145/36 K/BB ratio in 186 innings. He'll be one of the Dodgers' starters in the NLDS.
Sep 28 - 1:40 AM

Dan Haren's $10 million player option for 2015 was triggered during Monday's start against the Giants.

Haren got there by crossing the 180-inning threshold for the season, which also secured him a $500,000 bonus. The veteran right-hander will make a decision on whether to accept the option after the season.
Sep 23 - 8:57 AM

Dan Haren yielded two runs -- one earned -- in seven innings in a no-decision versus the Giants Monday.

He was coming off an additional day of rest, as Los Angeles decided to give Jamey Wright a spot start in Sunday's series finale at Chicago so Haren could take the ball against the hated Giants instead. Haren reversed a troubling trend: Dodgers' starters came into tonight in a terrible funk, having posted a 8.88 ERA over 25 1/3 innings while failing to work five innings even once in the last seven games. The bullpen (5.97 ERA) wasn't much better during that stretch. Fortunately, both showed up tonight (well, until Kevin Correia was called up in the 13th, anyway). Haren (13-11, 4.03 ERA) welcomes the Rockies to Los Angeles on Saturday.
Sep 23 - 2:36 AM

Dan Haren allowed five runs over five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.

Haren actually gave up just four hits, but the Rockies managed to turn them into five runs. The line looks bad, but it was Haren's first loss since August 17, and the right-hander is still 13-11 with a 4.14 ERA after a string of above-average starts. Haren will try to get back in the win column at the Cubs on Sunday.
Sep 17 - 12:03 AM

Dan Haren fired seven shutout innings, scattering four hits, to beat the Padres 4-0 on Wednesday.

Haren fanned five and issued only one free pass in his fourth straight quality start, and fifth in seven outings. This stretch of dominance comes on the heels of a putrid stretch during which there was media speculation he could lose his rotation spot. Indeed, since losing five straight (10.03 ERA), Haren had gone 4-1 with a 2.04 ERA in his last six outings, including 2-0 with a 0.95 ERA in his last three. A red hot Haren travels to the thin air of Denver to take on the Rockies on Tuesday.
Sep 11 - 1:05 AM

Dan Haren limited the Diamondbacks to one run and four hits in six innings to win Friday.

It was Haren's third straight quality start and fifth in six outings since a long losing streak had many calling for his job. He's 12-10 with a 4.17 ERA overall this season, and he's just 18 innings away from giving himself a $10 million player option to return to the Dodgers next season.
Sep 6 - 1:12 AM

Dan Haren pitched well again, yielding two runs (one earned) over six innings in a no-decision as the Dodgers lost in 12 innings to the Padres on Friday.

Four of Haren's last five starts have been of the quality start variety, something the Dodgers have needed in their attempt to maintain their NL West lead over the Giants. On Friday, Haren surrendered five hits and a walk while striking out three. The right-hander has a 4.33 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 118/33 K/BB ratio. He'll match up against the Nationals at home on Wednesday next.
