The Dodgers made a notable move today when they signed free agent starting pitcher Dan Haren to a one-year, $10 million deal.

Haren slots into fourth in the starting rotation at the moment as he returns home to Southern California. The right-hander returns after one season with the Washington Nationals, going 10-14 with a 4.67 ERA in 30 starts. He spent the 2010-2012 with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

The 33-year-old also returns to the National League West after spending two and a half seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2008-2010. Haren became the first pitcher signed by the Dodgers this off-season as they already filled one hole with the signing of Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero earlier this winter.

The team has been rumored to be interested in Japanese right-hander Masahiro Tanaka, once a posting system agreement in in place.
