JUPITER, Fla. (AP) For Miami Marlins pitcher Dan Haren, the relocation from Southern California to South Florida will take some getting used to.
The 34-year-old right-hander reported to his new team this week after contemplating retirement, but he made it clear Sunday he still feels the tug of faraway family. Back in Los Angeles are his wife and their children, ages 7 and 5, and...

Dan Haren was traded from the Los Angeles Dodgers to the Miami Marlins last month, and there has been some speculation that the 34-year-old right-hander would rather retire than pitch in Miami.

The Dan Haren/Marlins saga has been rolling on for about a month now. If you’re not familiar with the situation, here’s a brief recap – the Dodgers traded Haren to the Marlins in the Dee Gordon trade, Haren has said he won’t play for a team that isn’t on the west coast, and wants a trade away from the Marlins.

The Los Angeles Dodgers surely are a busy bunch during MLB’s winter meetings. Fresh off acquiring shortstop Jimmy Rollins from the Philadelphia Phillies, Los Angeles has sent second baseman Dee Gordon and starter Dan Haren to the Miami Marlins.
The Marlins will send former first-round pick and top prospect Andrew Heaney to the Dodgers in the deal. Also joining Heaney in Dodger...
Dan Haren struggled yet again yesterday, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and two walks in 4.1 innings. By the time the day was over, his ERA stood at 4.76, but his ERA may not even be the biggest problem. Haren now routinely labors to get through even five innings, thus taxing an already weak bullpen and affecting not only the game he pitches but subsequent ones...
The Dodgers could use a versatile veteran like Ben Zobrist
In what might be the biggest surprise in baseball in 2014, the Tampa Bay Rays are finally bad.
They haven’t been decimated by injuries, they just cannot field a competitive team in the uber competitive AL East.
Currently, the Rays are 11.5 games behind the first-place Toronto Blue Jays in the East. They will be getting...
Dan Haren has now made 16 starts. His ERA is 3.83. He’s stayed healthy enough to take the ball every fifth day. If you’d been told that’s how the first three months of his season would go when he signed a mere one-year contract last November, you’d probably have been thrilled and have quickly accepted that deal.
But there’s two problems with that, of course. The first is...
