Miami Marlins' SP Dan Haren hasn't made a decision as to whether he will retire or play for the Marlins in 2015. There is no timetable for his decision. (Source: Sun-Sentinel)

Fantasy Impact: If Haren decided to continue playing, but only on the West Coast, then the Marlins could listen to his request and decide to deal him to a West Coast team. Who's to say whether Haren will play or not this season, but he likely won't stay in Miami. It's clear Haren doesn't want to be away from his family in California.

Ken Rosenthal reports that, while they hope he will pitch for them, the Miami Marlins may trade Dan Haren if he plans to retire rather than join the team. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Haren's days of all-category fantasy relevance are long gone, but he could be a useful source of wins if he pitches for a good offensive team in a pitcher's home park.

Miami Marlins' P Dan Haren told Marlins' brass that he wants to talk to his family before deciding if he wants to play for Miami. The Dodgers have promised financial compensation for the Marlins if Haren retires without playing for Miami. (Source: Sports Illustrated)

Fantasy Impact: When brought up in trade rumors, Haren stated that he "had no interest in playing in a city away from [his] family." Haren is from southern California. If Haren does play, remember that he is coming off of arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder.

Dan Haren was packaged in a deal that sent Dee Gordon to the Miami Marlins for Andrew Heaney. Haren has expressed his desire to remain in Southern California so there is the possiblity that he may retire. Clark Spencer, the Marlins beat writer for the Miami Herald, believes that the Dodgers will pay Haren's $10 million salary "whether or not he retires." (Source: Clark Spencer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Haren is a mediocre fantasy commodity at this stage of his career. Last year he went 13-11 and posted a 4.02 ERA with a 1.177 WHIP. He pitched 186 innings with 146 strikeouts and 36 walks.
