Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Dodgers are “very interested” in signing the veteran right-hander and that the only hang-up is Arroyo’s desire for a three-year deal. The Diamondbacks are similarly interested; they also won’t go three years.
One of the most durable pitchers in baseball, Arroyo registered a steady 3.79 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 32 starts last year for the Reds. He has totaled more than 199 innings in each of the last nine seasons.
Los Angeles would appear to have a full rotation with Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Dan Haren and Josh Beckett all locked in for 2014, but Haren has battled chronic back issues and Beckett is coming off surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome — the same condition that ended Chris Carpenter’s career.
