Signed largely for his career-long durability, 37-year-old Bronson Arroyo has been sidelined with a bulging disk in his back for almost all of Diamondbacks camp and the injury hasn’t shown much improvement. He’s able to play catch, but Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports that Arroyo was sore and stiff after doing so Monday and could…

Bronson Arroyo was diagnosed last week with a bulging disk in his back, which threatened to steer him to his first-ever 15-day disabled list stint.

Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports that Arroyo has a bulging disk in his back and is expected to be out for 7-10 days. He was scratched from Tuesday’s scheduled start and…

The Orioles have arguably had the worst off-season of any Major League team. They had the much-publicized contract snafus with closer Grant Balfour and outfielder Tyler Colvin, backing out of contracts with both at the last minute. They traded closer Jim Johnson and, as some have stated, whiffed on the return. Most importantly, though, the…

Starter Bronson Arroyo inked a two-year, $23.5 million deal with the Diamondbacks on Friday. The signing displaced two pitchers in the D-Backs’ system: 2011 first-rounder Archie Bradley and Randall Delgado, one of the players acquired from the Braves in January 2013′s Justin Upton trade. The rotation can more or less be written in ink with…

If these tweets from Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times are any indication, it looks like the Dodgers and free agent left-hander Paul Maholm have reached agreement on a contract: Locker for "Maholm" in #Dodgers clubhouse.— Dylan Hernandez (@dylanohernandez) February 08, 2014 Paul Maholm went in and out of the #Dodgers clubhouse.

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…
