Previously Haren had told the club that he would retire if he was moved out of the Los Angeles area. MLB’s Joe Frisaro reports Haren has still be weighing his options since the Dec. 10 trade and has informed the Marlins of his desire to pitch on the west coast.
Haren also would like to pitch for a team who has their winter facility in Arizona.
The Dodgers agreed to pay the $10 million Haren is signed for in 2015. The Marlins will still receive that cash consideration even if they are able to trade him.
Haren started 32 games a year ago for the Dodgers going 13-11 with a 4.02 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.
