Former Washington National Dan Haren signs with Dodgers

Entering the 2013 season, the Washington Nationals hailed over the addition off right-hander Dan Haren.  Washington signed Haren to just a one-year deal in hopes the former Arizona Diamondback could bolster the back end of the Nationals rotation.  Haren, however, had a very tumultuous only season with the Nationals finishing with an overall record of 10-14 and 4.67 ERA.

The Pepperdine University product struggled mightily in the first half of the season before finally settling into his role. With just a one-year contract, Washington did not appear to be a likely fit for Haren past last season, and Haren subsequently agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Dodgers.  The Dodgers signed Haren to a one-year about 10 million-dollar deal.

Now, the Nationals will look to add a back end starter to their rotation this off-season.  Don’t expect it to be any major name, but Washington will make a move to secure a fifth starter for 2014.
