Dan Haren reportedly “holding out hope” for trade to Angels or Padres

If home is where the heart is, then Dan Haren’s heart is very clearly in Southern California.

After the Los Angeles Dodgers sent him in a blockbuster deal to the Miami Marlins, Dan Haren is apparently “holding out hope” for a trade to the Los Angeles Angels or San Diego Padres.

It wouldn’t be a huge surprise for San Diego to add Haren after the kind of offseason they’ve been having, but Haren is well past his prime and isn’t viewed as a big target for any team.

It’s an unrealistic assumption for Haren to be traded to the Angels, as they need a much more significant improvement to their rotation then what Haren can be.

Haren told ESPN Los Angeles in November that he has “no interest in playing in a city away from my family” and may be retiring very soon.
