LOS ANGELES (AP) Right-hander Dan Haren agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal with the Dodgers on Monday, adding another veteran arm to Los Angeles' deep rotation.
The deal includes $3 million in performance bonuses and a $10 million vesting option for 2015.
Haren returns to his native Southern California after spending last season in Washington, going 10-14 with a 4.67 ERA and a strong finish to the season. The 11-year veteran spent the previous three seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, going 33-27.
"We were looking for somebody that we could lean on to provide us starts and innings, and obviously had a good track record," Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said. "He's also somebody from the area, so he understands the Dodgers and has respect for the organization and everything."
If Haren pitches 180 innings for the Dodgers, he'll have a $10 million player option for 2015. He had pitched at least 180 innings in nine straight seasons before last year in Washington, where he finished with 169 2-3 innings pitched after a stint on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.
Haren will get $250,000 each in performance bonuses if he makes 24, 27 and 30 starts, with a $500,000 bonus for 32 starts. He'll get $250,000 each if he pitches 150, 160 and 170 innings, with a $500,000 bonus for 180 and 190 innings.
The 33-year-old has 129 career victories. The Dodgers will be the sixth major league team for Haren, who also pitched for St. Louis, Oakland and Arizona.
Haren will compete for a spot in Los Angeles' loaded rotation alongside Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu. The Dodgers also have injured veterans Chad Billingsley and Josh Beckett under contract.
"Josh we expect to be ready when camp opens, and Chad at some point during the season," Colletti said. "I'm not going to close the door to any more starters. We certainly like the four we have, and we hope we get Josh back and we hope we get Chad back."
