LOS ANGELES -- Dan Haren has agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Dodgers announced the deal Monday. It includes $3 million in performance bonuses.

Haren returns to his native Southern California after spending last season in Washington, going 10-14 with a 4.67 ERA and a strong finish to the season. The 11-year veteran spent the previous three seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, going 33-27.

The 33-year-old righthander has 129 career victories.

The Dodgers will be the sixth major league team for Haren, who also pitched for St. Louis, Oakland and Arizona.

Haren will compete for a spot in Los Angeles' loaded rotation alongside Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu. The Dodgers also have Chad Billingsley and Josh Beckett under contract.
