Nationals | Dan Haren feeling healthy

Updating a previous report Washington Nationals SP Dan Haren (back, hip), who dealt with back and hip issues last season that led to diminished velocity, said he doesn't expect any problems this year, and he enters spring training fully healthy. "I feel great," Haren said at. "I threw a bullpen actually (on Jan. 25) before I flew out. I felt good, I feel strong. Just trying to put it in neutral a little bit. I've thrown three or four bullpens. I don't want to get ready too early, especially this year with spring starting a little earlier, games starting a little earlier." Haren has dealt with his lingering hip issues by losing weight, improving his flexibility and strengthening his core muscles.
