Dan Haren a candidate for a breakout year?

Postby rib217 » Mon May 07, 2007 12:28 pm

Haren is 26 years old, has had two seasons of 200 innings niether that looked fantastic but neither looked bad by any means, this year he is looking solid. Is he someone to look at buying now before he continues this kind of a pace?

Oakland doesnt seem to be a great team but Haren seems like a guy you could get for a reasonable price.

HRs really bit him hard last year but he has that under control so far. He has some really good stuff and generally throws strikes so I can see him as a top 15 pitcher by the end of the year if things go right for him.

He is underrated IMO and a lot of people felt the same way:

I'd had him rated as the #13 best overall SP if that answers your question.

Trade him now if someone thinks he's a top-10 (pitching-wise) talent. But i wouldn't count him out of finishing in the top 20.
