Yankees “don’t seem” to be involved in Haren race


Via Jon Heyman: The Yankees “don’t seem” to be one of the clubs involved in the race for Dan Haren. The Angels will reportedly look to move the right-hander today so they can avoid exercising his $15.5M option. They already traded Ervin Santana (to the Royals for a non-prospect) and hope to save as much cash as possible so they can re-sign Zack Greinke. I wrote more about Haren and the Yankees a few weeks ago.

    Good. Stay away. Last thing the Angels need is more prospects and if we want to trade for a pitcher with red flags, get Lincecum. At least there’s still upside in him and he’s on the right side of 30.

  2. Murderers' Row Boat says:

    I’d take Haren for the same trade as the Royals got Santana. A 27 yr old AAA reliever.

  3. LK says:

    If they’re staying away, I hope it’s because they’ve given the medicals a thorough look and don’t like what they see. If Haren is healthy they should try for him, but that’s obviously a huge if.

    Wait until they see the attendance next yr.

  5. Slappy McWaterbug says:

    ‘Don’t seem to be involved’ = Cashman is working out a A-Rod for Haren trade right now.

  6. Eddard says:

    Best to stay out of this. Our priority should be to re-sign Andy and Hiroki. Let Hughes and Phelps continue to blossom. CC, Andy, Hiroki, Hughes, Phelps.

  7. Steve (different one) says:

    If Haren was a Yankee and coming off 3 years of decline, everyone would want the Yankees to trade him….he’s the pitching version of Granderson.

  8. Chuck says:

    Arod for Vernon wells and Dan haren. I’d make that trade.
