    Padres general manager Josh Byrnes admitted earlier this month that Dan Haren was among the “eight to 10” starting pitchers the club was very interested in. Bill Center of the San Diego-Union Tribune said in his weekly webchat yesterday that the Padres haven’t wavered on that, though they will likely have to wait to see…

  2. Rays should trade James Shields to fill holes

    Nov 11, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    James Shields

    That the Rays will trade a starter this winter seems like a given. With David Price, James Shields, Jeremy Hellickson, Matt Moore, Alex Cobb, Jeff Niemann and Chris Archer all under contract, the Rays possess both quality and quantity in the rotation. What they don’t have are bats and a lot of money, so with…

  3. The Dan Haren-Carlos Marmol trade fell through because of Haren’s health

    The Cubs and Angels had a Dan Haren-for-Carlos Marmol trade all but done. It feel through, however, with many speculating that it was due to issues surrounding Marmol’s no-trade clause or cold feet by one side or something. Many others, however, believe that it fell through because of Haren’s health. David Kaplan of CSNChicago.com has a…

  4. Cubs interested in Brandon McCarthy and Shaun Marcum

    According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun Times the Cubs “already have expressed interest in” Brandon McCarthy and “another buy-low candidate the Cubs are eyeing” is Shaun Marcum. General manager Jed Hoyer indicated that the Cubs will probably try to sign some veterans to reasonably priced one- or two-year deals, like they did last…

  5. Nationals likely to cut ties with left-hander John Lannan

    Nov 4, 2012, 2:53 PM EDT

    The Nationals did not make free agent right-hander Edwin Jackson a qualifying offer by Friday night’s deadline and would seem to have an opening in their 2013 starting rotation for a guy like John Lannan. But Lannan probably won’t be given that shot. According to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, “people familiar with the…

  6. Padres could be a fit for Dan Haren this winter

    Nov 4, 2012, 1:48 PM EDT

    dan haren getty

    Free agent right-hander Dan Haren had a frustrating 2012, posting a pedestrian 4.33 ERA across 176 2/3 innings while fighting a lingering lower back issue. Haren should still find plenty of interest on the open market this offseason, but if he would rather do a one-year “prove-it” style of deal to reestablish his value, there’s…

  7. Dan Haren said yesterday was “one of the most anxious days” of his life

    Nov 3, 2012, 11:55 AM EDT

    Dan Haren Getty

    If you thought the drama involving Dan Haren yesterday was crazy from an outsider’s perspective, just imagine being the guy in the middle of it all. Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com caught up with Haren late last night after the proposed deal with the Cubs fell through and the Angels bought out his $15.5 million option…

  8. Dan Haren hits free agency after Angels decline option

    Nov 3, 2012, 12:22 AM EDT

    Dan Haren Getty

    It appeared Dan Haren was Chicago-bound just a few hours ago, but he’s now a free agent. Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that the Angels have declined the $15.5 million club option on Haren’s contract for 2013. He will receive a $3.5 million buyout and test the open market. Yes, somehow the Angels were able…

  9. UPDATE: The Dan Haren-for-Carlos Marmol swap is not happening

    Dan Haren AP

    UPDATE: Oh boy. Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com was told by a source that the deal is off. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com hears that Carlos Marmol would have signed off on the trade, but the Cubs pulled the deal off the table for some reason. It could be because of the money involved or the medicals…

  10. The Top 50 Free Agents of 2013

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Earlier this fall I counted down the top 111 free agents of this offseason. Since then, several players have had their options picked up or contracts extended, taking them out of play.  With the free agent signing period beginning tonight, it’s a good time to update that list and count them down once again. Up first,…

  11. Dan Haren expects the Angels to trade him

    Nov 1, 2012, 2:51 PM EDT

    Dan Haren

    Yesterday the Angels traded Ervin Santana to the Royals, getting out from under his $13 million option for 2013, and there’s been tons of speculation that they’re looking to do the same thing with Dan Haren and his $15.5 million option or $3.5 million buyout. One way or another the Angels must exercise or decline…

  12. The Angels top priority: signing Zack Greinke

    Nov 1, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    In some of the Dan Haren/Ervin Santana threads some Angels fans have said that they hope that L.A. doesn’t re-sign Zack Greinke.  Guess what: the Angels aren’t listening to you, as Danny Knobler reports: The Angels’ top offseason priority is finding a way to re-sign Greinke (“huge priority,” one Angels person said). Greinke was 6-2…

  13. Option trading: Royals acquire Ervin Santana from Angels

    Oct 31, 2012, 5:01 PM EDT

    Ervin Santana

    This week the Angels have reportedly been shopping Ervin Santana and Dan Haren as they face big-money option decisions on both pitchers and according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com they’ve found a taker for Santana in the Royals. No word yet on the return coming back to the Angels, but don’t expect it to be…

  14. The Dan Haren-Ervin Santana trade efforts have been upgraded to: “aggressive”

    Oct 31, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Dan Haren

    We heard about the Angels’ efforts to unload Dan Haren and/or Ervin Santana before the team is required to exercise their 2013 options this week, but the heat on that was tepid at best. There was talk of the desire to trade them, but no real sense if anything could get done. Ken Rosenthal, however,…

  15. Angels exploring trades for Dan Haren and Ervin Santana

    Oct 29, 2012, 7:04 PM EDT

    Dan Haren

    We heard last month that the Angels were likely to decline their club options on Dan Haren and Ervin Santana in order to focus their efforts on signing impending free agent Zack Greinke, but things could get interesting in the next couple of days. According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, the Angels are currently exploring…

  16. Dan Haren feels “guilty” about poor performance, won’t be surprised if Angels decline option

    Oct 3, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Dan Haren

    Last week Dan Haren got pretty angry when “a source familiar with the team’s thinking” told Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com that the Angels were planning to decline his 2013 option, saying it was “dumb timing” because the story had the possibility of distracting the team down the stretch. However, after last night’s start against the…

  17. Ben Sheets to start Braves’ season finale and then retire

    Ben Sheets Getty

    Tim Hudson was scheduled to start Atlanta’s season finale, but with the Wild Card spot locked up the Braves will rest him for the playoffs and instead turn to Ben Sheets for Game 162 against the Pirates. Sheets hasn’t pitched since August 24 because of a shoulder injury and told reporters that he’ll retire after…

  18. Dan Haren is not happy about “source” saying Angels will decline his 2013 option

    Sep 28, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Dan Haren

    Earlier this week Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com wrote that the Angels were likely to decline their 2013 options on Dan Haren and Ervin Santana while focusing on re-signing Zack Greinke to a huge long-term deal. Gonzalez cited “a source familiar with the team’s thinking” and … well, Haren thinks whoever that source is has “dumb…

  19. Jered Weaver would be fine with the Angels giving more money to Zack Greinke

    Sep 27, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Jered Weaver

    When Jered Weaver signed a five-year, $85 million extension with the Angels last year most analysis of the deal pegged it as extremely team-friendly and well below market value for an elite No. 1 starter. Weaver repeatedly said at the time that he didn’t really care because $85 million is a ton of money and…

  20. Angels focused on re-signing Zack Greinke, likely to decline options on Dan Haren, Ervin Santana

    Dan Haren

    Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com passes along word from “a source familiar with the team’s thinking” that the Angels plan to decline their 2013 options on Dan Haren and Ervin Santana. Haren’s option is for $15.5 million with a $3.5 million buyout and Santana’s option is for $13 million with a $1 million buyout. And then,…

  21. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 17, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Oakland Athletics

    Orioles 9, Athletics 5: Baltimore salvages one. Which is important for two reasons. Reason 1:  It’s their 82nd win of the year, which means they will finish above .500 for the first time in forever.  More importantly: they really just need to avoid the disaster west coast trip here. If they take care of business…

  23. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  24. Red Sox could seek out big-name targets this winter

    Aug 25, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    The Red Sox have had an average payroll in excess of $170 million the last three years. With Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett departing and David Ortiz, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Cody Ross all set to become free agents, they’re currently looking at something less than half of that for 2013. It figures to give…

  25. Rays finish four-game sweep in Anaheim

    Aug 19, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Matt Moore

    The Rays couldn’t manage so much as a hit or a walk Wednesday in Felix Hernandez‘s perfect game, but look at what they did to the Angels’ starters in four games since: Dan Haren: 3 2/3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER Jered Weaver: 3 IP, 8 H, 9 ER C.J. Wilson: 4 2/3 IP, 6…
