Right-handed pitcher Dan Haren has exercised his option to play for the Dodgers in 2015.

Haren had a 4.02 ERA and 4.09 FIP with the Dodgers in 2014, striking out 145 batters in 186 innings while allowing 222 baserunners. In his final 10 starts of the 2014 season, Haren had a 2.43 ERA with 50 strikeouts in 59 1/3 innings. He turned 34 in September.

His best start came June 30 against Cleveland, when he allowed two baserunners in seven shutout innings on the night the Dodgers moved into first place in the National League West after a 9 1/2-game deficit.

    I’m so thrilled. Haren should change his name to, Mr Schizophrenia, considering the way he pitched in 2014. Our best hope is that someone, “anyone” beats him out of a starting spot

  2. Is that good news or bad news for the ball club?

    I think Haren had a good enough season for the team to be happy that he exercised this option.

  4. This worked out well for the Dodgers. As recall one of the options last year was to resign Nolasco, who ended up signing a $60 million five-year contract with the Twins and produced far less that Haren.
