Arroyo update

Free agent pitcher Bronson Arroyo’s name has circulated today with rumors connecting him to the Pirates. We exchanged messages but Arroyo said he wasn’t aware of anything involving the Pirates.

Arroyo said his agent has been contacted by several clubs but that more interest has come from the Twins, Phillies and Angels right now. No deals are close at the moment though.

The door isn’t all the way shut for Arroyo and the Reds. But GM Walt Jocketty noted that nothing was happening with his club and Arroyo.

“We just haven’t talked about it in a while,” Jocketty said. “I don’t think we have closed it out but it would be pretty tough financially.”

Good to see him hitch on to another team for his waning years. Not too good to see it is one of our nemesis’. He’s been good to Cincy and I wish him all the best (except for the 4 or 5 games we may be seeing him!?*).

Maybe if the Reds trade Bailey and Chapman they could sign Arroyo for a couple of years . It appears Bailey doesn’t raelly like it here and Chapman thinks he’s the manager / general manager/ owner and can dictate what his role is going to be. Just a thought.
