Dan Haren Traded To The Angels
According to the Associated Press, the Angels have acquired Dan Haren from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for Joe Saunders, Patrick Corbin, Rafael Rodriguez, and a player to be named later.
The player to be named later is a top prospect, according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic.
Haren, 7-8 with a 4.60 ERA in 21 starts this year, was one of the major pitching targets among contenders before the July 31 deadline for non-waiver trades. He won at least 14 games and pitched more than 200 innings in each of the previous five seasons with Oakland and Arizona, topping out at 16-8 with a 3.33 ERA in 2008
So much for some of the stories that ran yesterday that said the Mets were poised to swoop in and land the righthander.
On a day when the Mets’ best righthander, R.A. Dickey came out of the game with a groin or knee injury, the Mets could find themselves short another starter with no replacement in sight.
Yesterday, Oliver Perez, in only his second appearance allowed a walk-off homerun in a depressing Mets loss. He may be tabbed to replace Dickey if the knuckle-baller ends up on the DL. Hopefully, Dickey is just day to day.
