Dan Haren SP LAD 23 Days

Haren will start Friday, rather than Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

The Dodgers did not provide a reason for the move, but Haren will have his start pushed back two days. Instead of facing the Nationals, Haren will now pitch the opener of a weekend set with the Diamondbacks after the Dodgers' off day Thursday. Manager Don Mattingly did not officially announce Wednesday's starter, but Carlos Frias is expected to get the nod.

Haren pitched six excellent innings on Friday against the Padres in a no-decision, as he gave up two runs (one earned) on five hits while striking out three hitters in a 95-pitch effort.

Over his last five starts, Haren has gone 3-1 only giving up eight runs over 29.1 innings pitched, while lowering his ERA from 4.57 to 4.33 during the stretch. Haren's woes seem to be behind him as he continues to fill out the Dodgers back end of the rotation.

Haren (11-10) picked up the win as he pitched seven fantastic innings on Friday against the Mets as he allowed only one run on three hits while striking out six hitters and walking none.

Since hitting a rough patch of awful starts, Haren has performed well of late with three wins and three quality starts over his last four games started. Haren was moved up a day in the rotation to allow Zack Greinke some additional rest, and the move showed no ill effects on Haren's production. His ERA currently sits at 4.44.

Haren's next start has been moved up to Friday against the Mets, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

The Dodgers will move Clayton Kershaw and Haren up to Thursday and Friday, respectively, to afford Zack Greinke (elbow) some extra rest. Haren has turned in quality starts in two of his last three outings, after failing to do so in any of his previous five turns.

Haren allowed six runs (three unearned) on five hits and three walks while striking out three in three innings in the Dodgers' 7-2 loss to the Brewers on Sunday.

Haren only had nine of 18 first-pitch strikes and took the loss in the game. The outing was Haren's shortest on the season. After winning his last two starts, Haren regressed Sunday.

Haren (10-9) was victorious Tuesday, tossing six innings of four-hit, two-run ball against the Braves. He also fanned seven and walked one.

An RBI-double and a solo homer by each of the Upton brothers were the only marks against the 33-year-old righty, who grooved nearly two thirds (62-of-97) of his pitches for strikes. After five straight losses from July 5 to August 1, Haren has been locked in over his last two starts (both wins), allowing just three earned runs on nine hits with a single walk and 11 K's in 13.1 innings. He'll look to make it three in a row at home against the Brewers on Sunday.

Haren (9-9) tossed a gem Wednesday to beat the Angels, allowing a run on three hits and striking out four over 7.1 innings.

Three baserunners is Haren's lowest total since a one-hit contest against the Indians June 30. Since that game, the 33-year-old had been awful, coughing up 26 runs in 23.1 innings (10.13 ERA) over five starts. Haren will try to stay on track Monday in Atlanta.

Dan Haren will start Friday's game against the Cubs.

After getting lit up on July 23, Haren was told he would have his next start skipped after struggling in four July starts. As it turns out, the start is just a few days later than originally scheduled. Haren is 8-8 with a 4.49 ERA and 1.31 WHIP through 21 starts on the season.

The Dodgers have told Dan Haren that they will skip his next scheduled start.

Haren has struggled to the tune of a 9.47 ERA in four July starts, so it's no surprise the team is hesitant to keep running him out there. With the skipped start, Haren won't pitch again before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, meaning Wednesday's start -- if the Dodgers acquire another starter at the deadline -- could be his last with the club. The earliest he could pitch again would be August 2.

Dan Haren earned his fourth consecutive loss in Wednesday's start against the Pirates, yielding five runs in five innings.

July has not been kind to Haren, as he's now 0-4 on the month with a 9.47 ERA in 19 innings. The right-hander gave up four hits -- including a home run to Travis Snider -- while walking three and striking out six. Haren has not exactly been the bargain the Dodgers hoped they were getting when they signed him back in November. He carries a 4.49 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 92/26 K/BB ratio. He'll make his final start of the month at home against the Braves next week.
