Dan Haren SP LAD 2 Months

Haren threw a bullpen session at Wrigley Field on Friday, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

Haren is now in a routine that would set him up to pitch a big game Monday against the Giants. Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) was previously tossed around as a potential candidate to make that Monday start, but Don Mattingly called that notion "a stretch" on Thursday. With Ryu likely out of the mix, Haren is now set to take the hill in what could be a deciding game in the final NL West standings. Although Haren was touched up for five earned runs his last time out in Colorado, he had allowed just two earned runs over his previous four starts combined.

Haren is currently slated to pitch Sunday against the Cubs, but he could be held back for Monday's opener against the Giants, the Dodgers' official site reports.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is another option for Monday, but he's iffy at best to be ready for that start it appears. Stay tuned.

Haren (13-11) took the loss on Tuesday night against the Rockies, as he gave up five runs on four hits in five innings pitched.

It was only a matter of time before Haren would get himself into trouble, considering the nice run of starts he had. Although Haren only gave up four hits in the game, they were costly. The Dodgers' hurler allowed a two-run homer to Corey Dickerson in the fourth inning and also let a wild pitch get by him for another run. Haren (4.14 ERA) will try to get back on track for the Dodgers as he faces Travis Wood and the Cubs on Sunday.

Haren grabbed his 12th win of the season on Friday against the Diamondbacks as he pitched six strong innings, while only allowing one earned run on four hits with six strikeouts.

Before Haren's excellent run of starts, he was really struggling to stay afloat in the Dodgers rotation. As of August 1, Haren has lowered his ERA from 4.76 to 4.17 while allowing no more than three runs in any game since. Look for Haren to next take the mound on Wednesday against the Padres.

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.
