Bronson Arroyo had an impressive 2010 debut on Thursday, holding the Cardinals to just one run and four hits over eight innings of work. He did sustain an injury along the way, though, according to CNATI.com’s C. Trent Rosecrans.

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.
