Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Cubs | Dan Haren added

The Chicago Cubs acquired SP Dan Haren from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in exchange for CL Carlos Marmol Friday, Nov. 2, a source confirmed. The Angels had a $15.5 million 2013 option on Haren's contract, and have been shopping him before the midnight ET deadline Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Haren went 12-13 with a 4.33 ERA in 30 starts for the Angels, which was a down season by his standards. He returns to the National League for the first time since 2010 when he was a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks. He is a durable strikeout pitcher who doesn't walk many, so that will serve him well in his new home in Wrigley Field. However, he is susceptible to the home run ball, and that could make for some adventurous afternoons on the north side.
