SEATTLE — In what was probably Dan Haren's last game in an Angels uniform, the right-hander gave up five runs — three earned — and seven hits and struck out eight in six innings of a 6-1 loss to Seattle in Safeco Field on Tuesday night.
Haren, slowed by lower-back tightness in the first half, finished with a 12-13 record and 4.33 earned-run average, and the Angels, mindful of his high mileage and decreased velocity, are not expected to pick up his $15.5-million option for 2013.
"One last time?" Haren said as reporters approached him afterward. "Definitely, the thought has crossed my mind. Part of me feels a little guilty because of the way this year went. If I would have had my average year, we'd probably be where we want to be."
Haren said he would consider returning to the Angels on a restructured, cheaper one-year deal.
Pitcher C.J. Wilson revealed late Monday that he will undergo arthroscopic surgery to remove bone spurs from his elbow.
Wilson went 9-5 with a 2.43 ERA in the first half. But he went 4-5 with a 5.54 ERA in the second half and finished with a 13-10 record and 3.83 ERA.
