The Reds have signed Bronson Arroyo to a minor league deal, hoping they can make use of whatever the 39-year-old has left in his tank. Arroyo had Tommy John surgery in 2014 as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and hasn’t thrown a major league pitch since. Arroyo has passed his physical, but money and terms of the deal are still unknown. Arroyo was well known for being durable during his time in Cincinnati, pitching over 200 innings in seven of his eight seasons with the organization. Arroyo made it clear that Cincinnati was the only team he was interested in signing with over this offseason, and it seems it is likely this is where he will finish his career.
Arroyo flies to AZ tomorrow, so I wouldn't expect this deal to actually go official until early next week. But there are no hurdles to clear— Zach Buchanan (@ZachENQ) February 2, 2017
Welcome back, Bronson. We missed you.
