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.”
