Saturday’s contest between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies featured a struggling Dan Haren, who gave up a season-high eight runs in 5.1 innings pitched.
With the outstanding pitching the Dodgers have displayed this season, Haren discussed the difficulty he’s encountered attempting to keep pace with his fellow starting pitchers, namely Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw. Haren described himself as the type of pitcher who will throw to keep his team in the game, suggesting he is unable to put together dominating performances.
Haren is 33-years-old and is in the midst of a recent slump on the mound, going 4-4 with a 4.98 ERA in his last 11 starts. Due to his struggles, the Dodgers may need to look at free agent market or trade possibilities to bolster their starting rotation.
