What D-backs want in return for Dan Haren

D-backs team president and CEO Derrick Hall acknowledged that the club is listening to offers for ace pitcher Dan Haren, but he made it clear that they did not feel an urgency to move the ace right-hander.

“It would need to be in our opinion an A-plus deal,” Hall said. “I think ideally what we would ask for is Major League ready pitching be it starters and or bullpen and prospects. Volume doesn’t matter, it doesn’t need to be four, five or six guys, it’s really about the quality.”

Hall said that even if the team does trade Haren, it does not mean that it is giving up on contending in 2011.

“I think it depends on what we get in return,” Hall said when asked about possible fan reaction to a deal. “If it appears to be a cash dump, it’s not a good message, which is not what we’re looking to do. As I’ve said before if a deal can’t get done for Haren and he’s on our team next year I’m fine with that. If we can get three or four pieces that can bring value now and are also controllable for a number of years than we’d have to consider it. If we bring in the right pieces and explain ourselves fans will understand that it was a move to improve our team now.”

Haren has two years and an option year left on his current deal. He has a partial no-trade clause that would allow him to reject a trade to 12 teams.

Hey Derrick, how about we give you Jesus Montero and Joba for Haren? You were nice enough to take Big Unit and then Ian kennedy off our hands. Joba could be a quality starter in the NL. He just can’t cut it in the AL East. Let me know, Thanks
