Newly acquired Marlins pitcher Dan Haren told the team's management that he wants to talk to his family before deciding if he wants to play for the team
The Marlins acquired Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon, Haren and infielder Miguel Rojas in a deal. Miami would get cash or a player to be named later depending on if Haren decides to retire.
Haren had a 13-11 record with a 4.02 ERA and 145 strikeouts in 32 starts with the Dodgers last season.
When his name was brought up in trade rumors, Haren said he "had no interest in playing in a city away from my family." Haren is originally from Southern California.
Haren, 34, exercised his $10 million player option for the 2015 season and had arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder to clean out bursitis and the AC joint after the season.
Haren has a career 142-122 record with a 3.77 ERA in 11 MLB seasons.
