It’s been a tough offseason for Bronson Arroyo. Pitchers and catchers report in a week and he still doesn’t have a job. This despite the fact that he was not given a qualifying offer by the Reds and thus does not have draft-pick compensation tied around his neck. People just don’t want to give long-term contracts to pitchers in their late 30s, no matter how durable they’ve been over the years.
So he’s going to meet the market. Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Arroyo is no longer demanding a three-year deal. Rather, you can have him for two years and $22 million.
That seems like a more than fair price for a guy who will more than likely give you 400 innings of league average pitching over that timespan. Expect him to have a team in short order.
