Red Sox in hunt for Dan Haren

The big issue with Haren is the condition of his back, which was problematic for him last season, but improved late in the year.

Despite his back issues, Haren, 32, made 30 starts for the Angels last season and went 12-13 with a 4.33 ERA. Since 2005, when he became a full time starter for Oakland, Haren has never had fewer than 30 starts and has pitched 200-plus innings seven times.
