Haren briefly considered coming out of retirement this week with the news that LAD's Brett Anderson would miss a good chunk of the season with a back injury, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Haren ultimately changed his mind, but he's still just 35 and could reconsider at some point.

Haren officially retired Thursday, Sports Illustrated reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was previously reported Haren would retire once the Cubs completed their postseason run, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. In his 13-year-career, Haren pitched for seven different clubs (A's, Diamondbacks, Angels, Nationals, Dodgers, Cubs and Marlins) and made the All-Star team three straight times from 2007-2009. He finished his career with a 3.75 ERA and 1.18 WHIP to go along with a career 2013:500 K:BB and is one of a handful of players to record a win against all 30 MLB teams.

Haren said that he'll retire from baseball after the Cubs complete their postseason run, ESPN Chicago's Jesse Rogers reports.

EDGE Analysis

Haren made the announcement in Sunday's regular-season finale, after he held the Brewers to one run on three hits over six innings en route to claiming his 11th victory of the season. The Cubs haven't officially set their roster for their NLDS matchup against St. Louis, but with manager Joe Maddon likely to deploy a four-man rotation, Haren figures to be the odd man out, and thus, left off the roster.

Haren (10-9) blanked the Reds over 7.1 innings in a 4-1 victory Tuesday, surrendering only three hits and striking out six.

EDGE Analysis

Haren turned in his second quality start of September, two appearances in which he has blanked opposing batters over at least seven innings. He also has now stayed away from his Achilles heel, the long ball, in three out of his last four trips to the mound. Haren has closed out the 2015 season with his best month to date, and it remains to be seen what role he will play in the Cubs' postseason plans.

Haren allowed three runs (one earned) on three hits, he did not walk a batter, and struck out two over 4.1 innings against the Cardinals on Friday afternoon.

EDGE Analysis

The surging Cubs would come on to win the game 8-3, but Haren was gone too early to qualify for a win. Now just six games behind the Cardinals, and more importantly, only two back of the Pirates for a wild card spot, the Cubs are pulling out all the stops as they scramble to qualify for that final spot so quick hooks and playing individual match-ups could very possibly part of the plan over the last few days of the regular season.

Haren's next start has been pushed back to Sunday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

With rain in the forecast in Philadelphia on Saturday, the Cubs have decided to push Haren back to ensure he doesn't have an abbreviated outing. Travis Wood will get the nod Saturday in what is expected to amount to a bullpen game for Chicago.

Haren (9-9) earned the win Monday at St. Louis, allowing no runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over seven innings.

EDGE Analysis

Haren was spotted an 8-0 lead after three innings in a game he needed very little run support, as he shut down the Cardinals. This was the first time he's completed seven innings since July 9, and it's the first time he's held an opponent scoreless since May 2. With this performance, he ended a rough patch in which he'd allowed 11 earned runs in 15.2 innings over his last three starts. He'll make his next start Saturday at Philadelphia.

Haren allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings, but received no decision Tuesday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Haren pitched well enough to earn the win, but the Cubs' bats were quiet early on, and wasted his solid effort. In his six starts since the Cubs acquired him, this was the first appearance in which he allowed fewer than three runs. His next start will be Monday at St. Louis

The Miami Marlins agreed to trade pitcher Dan Haren to the Chicago Cubs on Friday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Haren has a 3.42 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP in 129 innings this season and will add depth to the team's rotation as they attempt to secure a playoff berth.

Haren (7-5) picked up the win Sunday, going six innings allowing one run on five hits and three walks while striking out three batters in an 8-1 victory over the Reds.

After a wild first inning which saw Haren give up a double, hit a batter, and then allow an RBI single to Todd Frazier, the 34-year-old bounced back, giving up just three more hits the rest of the way. He has now thrown back-to-back one run games, striking out eight batters in the process and has worked his ERA down to 3.24 with a WHIP of 1.07.
