Haren Would Consider Trades

Dan Haren told Jack Magruder of FOXSportsArizona.com that he would accept a trade under the right circumstances. As Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported this weekend, Haren can veto deals to 12 teams, thanks to a clause in his contract. Haren does have his preferences, though he would consider trades.

“I was born and raised on the West Coast,” he said. “Obviously staying on the West Coast would be nice. If I went to the East, if a trade came with a team on my no-trade [list], I would have to consider it.”

Haren realizes his unspectacular 2010 numbers and substantial (but team-friendly) contract may make it tricky for the Diamondbacks to complete a trade. The D’Backs have not received concrete offers for Haren, though the Phillies appear to be discussing a deal for a top pitcher.

Haren has a 4.60 ERA this season, with 8.9 K/9 and 1.8 BB/9. He is set to earn $12.75MM in each of the next two seasons, and his team will have the option of paying him $15.5MM in 2013 or buying him out for $3.5MM.
