Trades have already begun to happen as the MLB offseason gets underway. The Los Angeles of Anaheim traded stater Ervin Santana to the Royals for minor league pitcher Brandon Sisk. Now that Santana is gone, the next pitcher on the Angels' trading block is right-handed starter Dan Haren.
Haren, who is coming off his worst season in his major league career, has a club option for $15.5 million that the Angels have until Friday night to decide on. If they decline, there is a $3.5 million buyout they must pay. That being said, they will look to deal the veteran.
There are plenty of teams that Haren would help, one of them being the Baltimore Orioles. Here are three reasons why the Orioles should trade for Dan Haren.
