A person familiar with the deal says the Los Angeles Angels have agreed to trade pitcher Dan Haren to the Chicago Cubs for closer Carlos Marmol.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Friday night on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been completed yet.

Haren, a three-time All-Star from 2007-09, is the second starting pitcher traded by the busy Angels in three days. Los Angeles shipped Ervin Santana to the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday for minor league left-hander Brandon Sisk.

The Angels had until midnight EDT on Friday to exercise Haren's $15.5 million option for next season. He had a $3.5 million buyout. The right-hander was 12-13 with a career-worst 4.33 ERA this year and spent time on the disabled list for the first time.

The Cubs declined to comment.
