RHP Dan Haren underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left non-throwing shoulder this morning. Expected to be back to start Spring Training.
Hardball Talk "Actually, he made it over the course of the year, but he crossed over the 180 innings pitched line last night, and that caused his $10 million option to kick in. It’s a player option, so he can choose to walk away from it if he’d like. Though, honestly, I think he’d be kind of dumb to do that...." September 23
Sources: Haren to #Dodgers, one year, $10M plus 2015 option that vests at 180 innings. Pending physical.
@dodgers have been in contact with Dan Haren's agent. Hard to tell if the fit is right but there's some interest on both sides
Washington Post "For years Ryan Zimmerman never needed to overcome a baseball season. He drew comparisons to Brooks Robinson clobbered around 25 homers a year and earned a $100 million contract. He had nothing to endure. He existed easily in a hard game until this season. His throwing mechanics broke down his bat..." September 12
CSN Washington "Since returning from the disabled list on July 8 Dan Haren has been a markedly better pitcher. The difference is striking. He was diagnosed with shoulder stiffness and administered a cortisone shot but if you ask Haren the problem wasn’t physical. The drastic improvement is simply a change in..." August 16
CSN Washington "Still experiencing the same lower back discomfort that nearly sidelined him a week ago, Ross Detwiler will have to make another trip to the disabled list. Manager Davey Johnson said Detwiler didn't appear to be 100 percent healthy during his between-starts bullpen session earlier today. The..." July 07

CSN Chicago "At one point, Dan Haren imagined himself wearing a Cubs uniform, pitching at Wrigley Field and spending this summer by Lake Michigan – at least until the trade deadline. Now Haren’s hoping to win a World Series ring with the Washington Nationals. Haren signed up for Twitter at the beginning..." May 12
Washington Post "Dan Haren handed the ball to Manager Davey Johnson in the sixth inning and trudged off the mound on Monday night in Nationals Park towards the home dugout. A St. Louis Cardinals runner stood at each base, his responsibility, with no outs on the scoreboard and a 3-2 deficit. He pitched in the sixth..." April 23
CSN Washington "Nationals starter Dan Haren may not have looked much sharper in his second start with the team than he did in his first, but the result was certainly better. The 11-year veteran took the victory in the Nats’ 7-4 win over the Chicago White Sox despite throwing 101 pitches through five innings and..." April 12
Washington Post "Dan Haren’s final March start mimicked how his entire spring training unfolded. He had easy stretches and bad moments, and it ended with him feeling good despite rough results. Haren became the first Nationals starter to put a bow on his preseason tune-ups today as he allowed four homers,..." March 27
Washington Post "Before Friday afternoon, Dan Haren’s spring training had been a rebuke of his 2012 season. He threw the ball harder this March than he did all last summer. He induced awkward swings and dribblers. He struck out eight batters and walked one. He made last year – a 4.33 ERA and his first ever trip to..." March 16
Washington Post "Dan Haren breezed through the first two innings today against the Houston Astros. He dealt an onslaught of sinkers and cutters, striking out two and not allowing one ball out of the infield. In the third inning, the Astros managed two singles and a walk for a run. In sum, the performance enabled..." March 06

February 19
Washington Post "Dan Haren threw his first bullpen session of spring training today, which for both observers and the Nationals provided the first chance to gather insight on how Haren goes about his craft. It would be foolish to draw grand judgments on Feb. 15, but Haren looked great. He “stood out” to Manager..." February 16
