Dan Haren‘s ugly season continued this afternoon, as he failed to make it out of the fourth inning against the Rockies and allowed six runs while recording 10 outs.
Haren actually struck out five and walked zero, but he served up his league-leading 19th homer of the season and now has a 6.15 ERA in 15 starts.
Haren also struggled for much of last season while pitching through back problems and combined during his last 33 starts–one full season, basically–he has a 5.49 ERA with 40 homers allowed in 182 innings.
This offseason Haren signed a one-year, $13 million deal with the Nationals in the hopes of getting healthy and returning to his old top-of-the-rotation ways, but at this point he might be in danger of losing his spot in the rotation.
