The Los Angeles Angels have traded pitcher Dan Haren to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for pitcher Carlos Marmol, multiple media outlets reported Friday. There had been speculation that Haren would be traded before Friday's midnight deadline on his $15.5 million club option for 2013. The Angels apparently were prepared to buy out Haren's option for $3.5 million if they could trade him. He was just 12-13 with a 4.33 earned run average in 2012. Marmol is scheduled to make $9.8 million next season. He went 3-3 with 3.42 ERA and 20 saves in 2012. It's unclear whether there are any other players involved in the trade and whether money will be exchanged as well.

Despite injury concerns Haren expects to be a highly targeted pitcher.

It's been a busy few days for the Los Angeles Angels (of Anaheim).

Well, that escalated (and then de-escalated) quickly.
There the Angels were on the verge of making a questionable deal sending Dan Haren to the Cubs for Carlos Marmol and before we knew it, the trade was called off (by the Cubs, no less!) and Haren's options was declined, leaving the Angels with nothing to show for what appeared to be a nice trade asset.
It was all just...
Details are still trickling out, but it appears that the Angels have finally pulled the trigger on the inevitable Dan Haren trade. Multiple Spanish-language reports claim that Haren has been dealt to the Chicago Cubs for Carlos Marmol.
Carlos Marmol (Cubs) have been traded to the Angels. The pitcher confirms the move to @elcariberd. "Anaheim is a good team".
