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.
Aug 30 - 2:33 AM

Dan Haren pitched well over seven innings, allowing only a run on three hits, in a win against the Mets on Friday.

This start of Haren's was moved up 24 hours to give Zack Greinke a few extra days off, but Monday's off-day meant the veteran remained on normal rest. This was his third consecutive quality start. Despite the recent success, he came into tonight 2-6 with a 7.26 ERA over his last eight outings. Haren improves to 11-10 with a 4.44 ERA and 1.27 WHIP.
Aug 23 - 12:56 AM

Dan Haren's next scheduled start was moved up to Friday to give Zack Greinke a few extra days off.

Haren was originally scheduled to start Saturday, with Greinke going Thursday and Clayton Kershaw pitching Friday, but some elbow tenderness caused the Dodgers to reshuffle their rotation. Kershaw will instead pitch the series finale against the Padres on Thursday, and Haren will lead off the Mets series on Friday. Haren last started on Sunday, so he will be on regular rest for the Friday tilt.
Aug 20 - 8:31 PM

Dan Haren pitched well over six innings, allowing only two runs, in a win against the Braves on Tuesday.

The struggling Haren has now put together back-to-back quality outings, certainly a good sign for the Dodgers, who have fastidiously been adding starting pitching depth as of late. Haren yielded a walk and six hits, including a solo home run to B.J. Upton in the fourth inning. He also struck out seven. Now with a 4.50 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and a 106/29 K/BB ratio, the right-hander will match up against the Brewers at home next Sunday.
Aug 12 - 10:09 PM

Dan Haren hurled 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball, yielding just three hits and no walks, in a 2-1 win Wednesday versus the Angels.

Where did this come from? Haren, who pitched for the Angels between 2010-12, barely held onto his rotation spot long enough to make this start against his former employer. The right-hander came into tonight having lost a career-worst five in a row, with his ERA jumping from 3.57 to 4.73 during that time. The most recent disaster came Friday against the Cubs, when he coughed up six earned runs in 4 1/3 innings. He posted a 10.03 ERA during that stretch, prompting Dodgers manager Don Mattingly to give a public vote of confidence last week. This was just the second time in 16 starts that Haren hasn't surrendered a homer. Haren will try to keep up the good vibes against the Braves on Monday.
Aug 7 - 1:22 AM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that Dan Haren will make his next scheduled start.

The ice is getting thinner. Haren was shelled on Friday, surrendering six earned runs to the Cubs in just four and a third innings. Loser of five in a row, he's seen his ERA edge up to 4.73. Obviously, the Dodgers would prefer that Haren would simply right his issues, but if he doesn't, they may have to start exploring other options.
Aug 2 - 6:20 PM

Dan Haren surrendered seven runs -- six earned -- in 4 1/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Cubs.

The Dodgers couldn't come away with Jon Lester or David Price, but they'll be motivated to add a starter at some point during August if Haren continues to get tattooed. He's now lost five straight starts, with his ERA jumping from 3.57 to 4.73.
Aug 2 - 1:39 AM

Dan Haren will start Friday's game against the Cubs.

After getting lit up on July 23, Haren was told he would have his next start skipped after struggling in four July starts. As it turns out, the start is just a few days later than originally scheduled. Haren is 8-8 with a 4.49 ERA and 1.31 WHIP through 21 starts on the season.
Jul 30 - 10:13 PM

The Dodgers have told Dan Haren that they will skip his next scheduled start.

Haren has struggled to the tune of a 9.47 ERA in four July starts, so it's no surprise the team is hesitant to keep running him out there. With the skipped start, Haren won't pitch again before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, meaning Wednesday's start -- if the Dodgers acquire another starter at the deadline -- could be his last with the club. The earliest he could pitch again would be August 2.
Jul 23 - 11:47 PM

Dan Haren earned his fourth consecutive loss in Wednesday's start against the Pirates, yielding five runs in five innings.

July has not been kind to Haren, as he's now 0-4 on the month with a 9.47 ERA in 19 innings. The right-hander gave up four hits -- including a home run to Travis Snider -- while walking three and striking out six. Haren has not exactly been the bargain the Dodgers hoped they were getting when they signed him back in November. He carries a 4.49 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 92/26 K/BB ratio. He'll make his final start of the month at home against the Braves next week.
Jul 23 - 9:56 PM

Dan Haren fell to 8-7 after allowing three runs over 4 2/3 innings Friday against the Cardinals.

Haren threw 99 pitches and couldn't make it out of the fifth inning. The veteran right-hander gave up eight hits (including a home run) and two walks while striking out four batters. While Haren got off to a nice start this season, he has a 5.11 ERA over his last 15 starts dating back to the start of May. He has allowed 18 home runs in that timespan. It's increasingly clear that the Dodgers could use some insurance for the back-end of their starting rotation.
Jul 19 - 12:43 AM

Dan Haren gave up four runs in four-plus innings Friday in a loss to the Padres.

Alexi Amarista, of all people, homered off Haren in the second, and Haren gave up a single and two RBI doubles before being pulled in the fifth. Fortunately for him, the lone runner he left on base was stranded. Haren has turned in just two quality starts in his last seven tries. The Dodgers have been getting him run support, so he's 8-6 despite his rough stretch. However, he's simply not a very good pitcher right now.
