Haren had threatened to retire if the Dodgers traded him out of Los Angeles but they sent him to the Marlins anyway.
“He’ll make his decision,” Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said via the Sun Sentinel. “We haven’t put any timelines on it.”
Perhaps the Marlins find a trade partner for Haren in Southern California. The Dodgers are going to pay Haren’s $10 million salary either way.
Haren, 34, made 32 starts last season finishing with 4.02 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.
If he chooses to pitch for the Marlins he would join a rotation that also has Henderson Alvarez, Mat Latos and Jarred Cosart. The Marlins will hope to have Jose Fernandez back by midseason and will try to fill another spot with either Tom Koehler, Brad Hand or David Phelps.
