The Nationals have agreed to a one yearl, $13 million dollar deal with free agent RHP Dan Haren according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, pending a physical.
The Los Angeles Angels opted to let Dan Haren become a free agent after declining his 2013 $15.5 million dollar team option during last Friday’s deadline.
Haren, 32, dealt with lower back stiffness last season and also showed a marked decline in velocity. He produced a 4.33 ERA and a 12-13 record in 30 starts for the Angels.
But as one scout told Rosenthal, “You know any 32-year-olds with (nearly) 2,000 innings pitched who have good medicals?”
