D-Backs Lock Up Haren Through 2012

Dan Haren and the Diamondbacks have agreed on a four-year, $44.75 million extension that will keep him in Arizona through 2012.  The new deal voids the final two years on Haren's old deal and also includes a club option for the 2013 season.  Acquired in the offseason from Oakland, Haren has adjusted nicely to the National League and is among the league leaders in several major statistical categories.  He was also named to his second consecutive All-Star Game this season.
