Dan Haren blanked the Tigers for four innings in the Marlins' 4-2 win Sunday.
Haren usually struggles during March, but he's pitched seven scoreless innings his last two times out, giving him a 2.00 ERA through nine innings. While he's most likely through as a useful mixed-league pitcher, he could still have some value in NL-only leagues this year. Mar 15 - 4:16 PM

Dan Haren pitched three scoreless innings, striking out three, against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Haren, rarely a good spring pitcher, gave up two runs in two innings last week in his spring debut against the Cardinals. He allowed just one hit today, a double off the bat of Danny Espinosa.
Mar 10 - 5:01 PM

Dan Haren yielded two runs and three hits in two innings Thursday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Haren has never been one to worry about spring performance; he had ERAs of 6.39 and 6.00 the last two years, and he's been under 4.00 just once since 2006. We're not sure how good he'll be once the season starts, but it's not going to affect his draft stock whether he has a 9.00 ERA or a 2.00 ERA this month.
Mar 5 - 3:44 PM

Dan Haren acknowledged to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman that he is no longer considering retirement.

Haren threatened to hang up his cleats for good back in November if the Dodgers traded him somewhere away from the West Coast, but he didn't follow through with that after being dealt in December to the Marlins. "I'm here," he said from Jupiter, Florida on Wednesday. The veteran right-hander posted a decent 4.02 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with 145 strikeouts in 186 innings last season for Los Angeles and should carry mixed-league fantasy value with Miami.

Marlins general manager Dan Jennings told MLB Network Radio on Sunday that Dan Haren "is preparing for spring training" and "is looking forward to being a Miami Marlin."

Haren has previously expressed a desire to pitch only on the West Coast, but it appears he's finally jumped on board to being a Marlin following an offseason trade. The veteran right-hander posted a 4.02 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with 145 strikeouts across 186 frames for the Dodgers last season. He should be a solid innings-eater for Miami in 2015.
Feb 8 - 12:18 PM

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.

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.
