Dan Haren on the block

Postby thedude » Fri Nov 02, 2012 2:56 pm

11:50am: The Angels are still working on trading Haren today, Jim Bowden of ESPN and MLB Network Radio reports (on Twitter). They aren't interested in exercising his option and trying to trade him later.

10:40am: The Cubs are among the teams interested in Dan Haren, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports. The Red Sox are eyeing the right-hander and other teams also appear to be involved.

The Angels have until today to exercise or decline Haren’s 2013 option ($15.5MM club option with a $3.5MM buyout). Today is also the deadline for teams to extend qualifying offers to free agents.

to the Cubs, for Marmol.
According to reports, the Cubs acquired have acquired Dan Haren in exchange for Carlos Marmol.
The Cubs had been reported earlier in the day as a team that was interested in acquiring Haren. The Angels will first pick up Haren's $15.5 million option before dealing him to the Cubs. On a one-year deal, the Cubs could still conceivably flip Haren to a contender at the trade deadline if they so choose.

Marmol another arm for the Angles pen.

not happening.
According to a Cubs' source, the Dan Haren for Carlos Marmol deal is not happening.
It''s a stark contrast to reports earlier in the evening that it was a done deal. While the Angels will still attempt to move Haren before Friday's midnight deadline to decide on his option, it appears for the moment that it won't be to the Cubs.

According to sources, Carlos Mamol agreed to waive his no-trade clause to go to the Angels in a potential Dan Haren deal, but the Cubs pulled the deal off the table.
No word yet on the exact reasons that the deal fell through, but it likely has to do with them failing to come to an agreement over how much salary would be included in the deal. The Angels will continue to talk to other teams, attempting to move Haren before the midnight deadline to decide on his $15.5 million team option for 2013.

the Cubs pulled this off the table. what? the chance to get rid of an overpaid reliever with an incredibly high BB/9 who wasn't that good anymore, as if they want to hold onto that? ;-D good luck with that.

I dont understand why the cubs would kill the Haren deal.

Injury issues. They may be worse than anybody thought (and that would go a long way to explaining why he was so bad last season).

The Angles declined the option. I find it hard to believe that they couldn't find someone willing to take Haren off their hands saving themselves the $3.5 million buyout.

If his injury is that serious, maybe a team could get creative and pay Haren $3mil to rehab in '13, with $10mil guaranteed for '14.
