The 33-year-old right-hander was nailed in the left calf with a Colby Rasmus comebacker in the top of the second inning.  He pitched through the pain, but acknowledged the injury in a post-game chat with reporters:

“It’s not real good, man. I’ve been hit a lot harder, but in other
places they haven’t hurt as much,” Arroyo said. “It got me right in the
belly of the calf, so it’s got my foot locked up, it doesn’t want to
move.”

He will be reevaluated Friday and the Reds probably won’t make a decision about his next scheduled start until after the weekend.  Arroyo has a 2.01 ERA since July 2009, best in the majors.
