Christopher Deane Haney (born November 16, 1968) is an American former Major League Baseball left-handed pitcher. He pitched from 1991–2000 and in 2002 for the Montreal Expos, Kansas City Royals, Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, and Boston Red Sox.
Haney is the son of former catcher Larry Haney. He attended Orange County High School in Orange, Virginia. Haney pitched for the Charlotte 49ers and was the All-Sun Belt selection in both 1989 and 1990 and remains the program's leader with 20 complete games. He was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the second round of the 1990 Major League Baseball Draft. A year after signing, Haney made his major league debut for the Expos, and pitched for them for 1.5 years. He was traded to the Kansas City Royals on August 29, 1992 with Bill Sampen for Sean Berry and Archie Corbin.
Hanry pitched for the Royals from 1992 to 1998. He had his in 1996, when he served as a full time starter, finishing the year with a 10-14 record and a 4.67 earned run average. In 1999, when Haney pitched for the Cleveland Indians, he gave up Wade Boggs' 3,000th hit, a home run. That October, Haney was left off the Indians' playoff roster. The decision to exclude him was blamed by some for the team's collapse against the Boston Red Sox in the 1999 American League Division Series.
