This isn’t completely surprising to me, as I figured Boston would be in on Haren. They need a quality veteran pitcher who can help mentor the young up-and-comers, and the Sox have money to burn. If Haren has a successful season, he could bring back some nice assets at the trade deadline or in a draft pick after the year.

Fangraphs has a great breakdown of Haren’s season, which can give you an idea of what to expect from the righty moving forward.
