Dan Haren will make his Angels debut tonight against the Red Sox, jumping right into the rotation just 24 hours after being traded from the Diamondbacks for Joe Saunders, Rafael Rodriguez, Patrick Corbin, and a player to be named later who’ll reportedly be Tyler Skaggs.
After starting Haren tonight the Angels will bump the rest of the rotation back one day, with Jered Weaver facing the Red Sox tomorrow followed by Joel Pineiro and Ervin Santana.
Haren has a 3.14 ERA in seven career starts against the Red Sox and a 4.05 ERA in four career starts as a visiting player at Angels Stadium. No word yet on when Joe Saunders will make his Diamondbacks debut.
