Nationals starter Dan Haren has cleared waivers so anyone can trade for him. If they do it before the end of August, anyone who trades for him can have him on their postseason roster. Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports, however, that acquiring him will be costly as the Nationals want a “group of prospects” for Haren.
Haren started out the season stinking on ice, but since the beginning of July he has a 2.53 ERA and 54/11 K/BB ratio in 57 innings. There are any number of teams who could use him. That Goold is reporting on this is evidence that the Cardinals are — or at least should be — interested.
