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.
