Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago Cubs bolstered their starting rotation by acquiring Dan Haren from the Los Angeles Angels Friday in exchange for reliever Carlos Marmol, according to multiple reports.
The deal came prior to a deadline Friday night for the Angels to exercise a $15.5 million contract option on Haren for next season, which the team did prior to making the trade.
Haren, a 32-year-old right-hander, fashioned a 12-13 record with a 4.33 ERA in 30 starts last season, his final campaign of a three-year contract. A three- time All-Star, Haren has compiled a 119-97 record with a 3.66 ERA in 296 games (286 starts) with St. Louis, Oakland, Arizona and the Angels.
Marmol, who is entering the final season of a three-year contract with the Cubs, is set to make $9.8 million in 2013. He went 0-3 with a 3.42 ERA and 20 saves in 61 appearances last season, his seventh at the major league level. The right-hander had spent his entire big league career with the Cubs.
