Dan Haren: Agrees with Nats

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Haren (hip) has agreed to a one-year deal with the Nationals, MLB.com has confirmed.

Recommendation: Haren's deal is pending a physical later this week, which, given his hip and back woes, isn't entirely a lock. The former appears to be the greater concern regarding his health, but if everything comes back clean, he'll have an opportunity to rebound from a disappointing 2012 on a team poised to make another run at the pennant in the National League. Haren continued to show good control last season, but had a career-high 1.4 HR/9 and repeated the reduced strikeout rate (7.2) that he turned with his first full season in Anaheim in 2011.
