Free agent right-hander Bronson Arroyo was a guest on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM this afternoon and told host Jim Bowden that the Phillies, Dodgers, Angels, Twins and Orioles have expressed interest in signing him. You can listen to part of the interview here.

Arroyo added that he hasn’t received an offer yet, so nothing appears to be imminent. However, things could pick up now that the Giants reportedly have a two-year, $23 million deal with right-hander Tim Hudson. The difference with Arroyo is that he’s looking for a three-year deal.

Arroyo, who turns 37 in February, compiled a 3.79 ERA and 124/34 K/BB ratio over 32 starts with the Reds this season. He doesn’t strike out many batters and gives up a ton of homers annually, but he has logged at least 199 innings in each of the last nine seasons.

    Please don’t do it, Ruben.

    God, keep him off the Orioles. It just seems like a bad idea.

      He should probably stay out of the AL, period. Probably just a matter of time til Ruben signs him for 3/51…

    He should get a contract just for being able to do that high leg kick at his age.

    My hamstrings scream just watching him do that.

    homer friendly guy. Padres Seattle. Contending teams Giants, Dodgers, Pirates. He’s still pretty good to take a shot

    A veritable who’s who of teams who won’t make him pitch beyond the regular season and MAYBE the DS.

    Keep those guitar strings tight, cornrows.

    He won’t go to the West Coast unless he has to. Congrats Baltimore.
