Dan Haren agrees to one-year with Dodgers, per report

Norm Hall

Haren is set to join Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu to form arguably the best starting rotation in the National League.

Dan Haren has reached a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers for $10 million, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. If Haren throws 180 innings in 2014, a vesting option for 2015 will kick in automatically.

Haren, 33, spent last season with the Nationals and went 10-13 with a 4.67 ERA. It was a tale of two halves for Haren; he was reportedly not 100 percent healthy at times during the first half of the year when he posted a 5.61 ERA over 17 starts. During the second half of the season, he went 6-4 with a 3.52 ERA and nearly a 5-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. If he can come close to duplicating those numbers with the Dodgers, they'll be getting a steal for $10 million.

Haren joins what will be a stacked rotation in L.A. He figures to slot in as the No. 3 or No. 4 starter alongside Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu. That's arguably the best starting rotation in the National League, and once you pair that with what should be an above-average lineup, the Dodgers look to be one of the teams to beat in 2014.
