Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that Dan Haren already passed a physical for another interested team, so it appears that optimism that Haren passes his physical for Washington is much better than it was five hours ago.
There was previously concern over whether or not Haren would pass his physical after the Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo released a report that the Red Sox “did not like what they saw” when looking over the medical reports on Haren’s hip. The report further backed previous concerns that clubs had after a trade between the Angels and Cubs involving Haren fell through due to was rumored to be a medical issue with Haren.
But now, all seems to be at least close to back to normal. With so much inconsistency in this story, more news could break at any minute, so we’ll continue to monitor this story as it progresses.
