Your move, Bronson.
Arroyo had his worst outing of the season last time he took the mound, but will try to match the efforts of his pitching cohorts tonight against the Brewers. Bronson has been mostly GOODrroyo when facing the Brewers over the years, posting a 3.70 ERA vs. Milwaukee. The departure of Prince Fielder creates a very right-handed heavy Brewers' lineup, which is always a good thing for Arroyo. As you can see below, Ryan Braun is the only existing Brewer with any kind of success against Bronson (>10 PA).
Marco Estrada is fresh of the DL and is not very good. That's all there is to say about him...
In other news, Joey Votto is in the midst of a mini-slump, collecting only 1 hit in his last 11 AB. Something tells me he'll be just fine...
