Dan Haren to make Angels debut Monday

July 26, 2010 | 10:56 am

The Angels just announced that Dan Haren would start Monday night, one day after the team acquired the three-time all-star from the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Angels thus would use Haren -- on regular rest -- Monday against the Boston Red Sox and would line him up to pitch Saturday against the first-place Texas Rangers. The Angels also want Jered Weaver to face Texas, so they will keep Weaver as Tuesday's starter against Boston and bump Joel Pineiro from Monday to Wednesday.

Scheduled starters for the Red Sox series:

Monday night: Haren versus Clay Buchholz

Tuesday: Weaver versus John Lackey, in Lackey's first start in Anaheim since signing with the Red Sox

Wednesday: Pineiro versus Josh Beckett
