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.
Jul 12 - 1:49 AM

Dan Haren was blown up for eight earned runs in 5 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Rockies.

It was a forgettable outing for Haren, who allowed multiple runs in three of his six frames. He struck out eight and didn't walk a batter, but the Rockies shelled him for 10 hits, including two homers. Haren will try to shake off this Coors Field punishment in his next start at home against the light-hitting Padres.
Jul 5 - 7:46 PM

Dan Haren hurled seven shutout innings and allowed just one hit and one walk in a 1-0 win Monday against the Indians.

Haren punched out five and came out after 103 dominant pitches. He entered this evening 2-0 in his last four starts despite posting an ugly 4.98 ERA in those outings. This time, he didn't need much offensive help. The veteran began the season by working at least six innings in 11 of 12 outings, but he failed to do so in three of his last four coming into tonight. He's now walked two or fewer in 11 straight and Los Angeles hurlers have walked two or less in 34 straight, the second longest streak of the century behind Minnesota's 36-game stretch in 2005. Haren travels to the pitcher's elephant graveyard on Blake Street on Saturday for a date with the Rockies.
Jul 1 - 12:53 AM

Dan Haren lasted only 4 1/3 innings against the Royals on Wednesday, giving up four runs in a no-decision.

Going deep into games hasn't really been his calling card in recent years, but Wednesday's start was still the shortest of the season for Haren. The right-hander gave up five hits, including two home runs, and walked two, exiting with two runners on and one out in the fifth inning. Haren owns a 3.83 ERA heading into another interleague tilt, this time with the Indians, on Monday.
Jun 25 - 11:37 PM

Dan Haren picked up his seventh win after allowing three runs in 6 1/3 innings Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

The game was tied at 3 in the fourth when Haren delivered a bases-loaded double, plating all three baserunners and giving himself all of the additional support he'd need. Haren has made four of his 14 starts this year against the Diamondbacks and gone 3-1 with a 4.26 ERA. He's 7-4 with a 3.54 ERA overall.
Jun 15 - 1:01 AM

Dan Haren lost his third straight start, falling to 5-4, after allowing four runs over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

The 33-year-old struck out two, gave up six hits and walked one. Haren enjoyed a spectacular first six weeks to his Dodgers' career, but opposing hitters have been squaring up his high-80s fastball in recent outings; he served up two balls that ended up over the fences tonight. Haren is 0-3 in his last four starts, a period that has seen his ERA jump from 2.84 to 3.50. It's not necessarily time to jump ship in mixed leagues, but the veteran should perhaps be shielded in bad matchups until he shows more consistency. Haren will look to get back on track next week in Cincinnati against a Reds team that has won four straight.
Jun 4 - 1:20 AM

Dan Haren surrendered three earned runs over six innings in Thursday's no-decision loss to the Pirates.

The veteran right-hander coughed up eight hits but didn't walk a batter. Haren has posted quality starts in seven of his last eight outings. He's not blowing anybody away, but Haren doesn't make many mistakes and has walked only 11 hitters all year. Coming off a 4.67 ERA with the Nationals last season, Haren is 5-3 with a 3.28 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. He squares off with the White Sox in Los Angeles next time around.
May 30 - 1:17 AM

Dan Haren yielded five runs -- two earned -- in six innings Saturday as the Dodgers fell to the Phillies.

It was a sloppy afternoon for Los Angeles and Haren wound up falling to 5-3 on the year. He struck out seven batters, but the Phillies got to him for six hits -- including a first-inning Chase Utley home run. Haren will look to get back into the win column next week when he faces the Pirates at home.
May 24 - 5:48 PM

Dan Haren fell to 5-2 after allowing five runs (four earned) in six innings in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Haren allowed ten hits overall, tying a season-high, but issued no walks and struck out three. The D'Backs scored in four of his six innings, raising his ERA to 3.18. Haren will look for his sixth win next weekend against the Phillies on the road.
May 18 - 7:17 PM

Dan Haren allowed three earned runs in seven innings Monday to pick up a win over the Marlins.

Haren admitted after his last start that he pitched through back stiffness, and a slow start (Miami led 3-1 after three innings) tonight quickened the pulses of Southern Californians. Haren soothed them, settling in and cruising from the fourth on. He improves to 5-1 with a 2.84 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. Haren will get the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
May 13 - 2:03 AM

Dan Haren admitted that he pitched through back stiffness during Wednesday's start versus the Nationals.

Haren struggled early on in the outing before ultimately settling in. It doesn't appear at this point that he's in danger of missing his next start, but the Dodgers should provide an update on the right-hander's status over the weekend.
