      Nationals' Bronson Arroyo: Agrees to deal with Nationals

      Arroyo (elbow) agreed to a contract with the Nationals on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. While it's not entirely clear if it's a major or minor league deal, the right-hander with the trademark leg kick will be reunited with manager Dusty Baker, from whom he played six seasons in Cincinnati from 2008-2013. Arroyo then jumped to Arizona, making 14 starts in 2014 before being forced to undergo Tommy John surgery. He's expected to be ready for spring training, and could bump Tanner Roark from the No. 5 starter role if truly healthy, but Arroyo's leash on a rotation spot would be very short.

      Bronson Arroyo: Expects to be ready come spring

      Arroyo (elbow) said Wednesday that his arm feels great and that he should be ready to go come spring training, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. The right-hander missed all of 2015 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in July of 2014, but Arroyo said he's finally had the resulting scar tissue in his elbow break up. Currently a free agent after the Dodgers declined his team option, Arroyo will turn 39 before the start of the 2016 season. However, there is reportedly mutual interest in a return to the Reds, with whom Arroyo spent eight seasons from 2006-2013.

      Bronson Arroyo: Team option declined

      Arroyo (elbow) had his team option declined Friday, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reports. Arroyo missed the entire season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in July of 2014, but was traded to the Dodgers as a way for Atlanta to dump his salary. He'll be 38 years old by the start of the 2016 season and won't have pitched for nearly two years, but he should get the opportunity to join the end of a starting rotation.

      Dodgers snag strong starters in deal with Marlins, Braves

      The Dodgers have snagged several veterans in a just-completed three-way trade filled with prospects, per Yahoo Sports. They receive starting pitchers Alex Wood and Bronson Arroyo and relievers Luis Avilan and Jim Johnson, as well as minor league utility infielder Jose Peraza from the Braves. They also get first baseman Michael Morse and starting pitcher Mat Latos from the Marlins. The Dodgers sent several prospects to both teams. First baseman Hector Olivera, lefty Paco Rodriguez and starting pitcher Zachary Bird head to Atlanta while pitchers Victor Araujo and Angel Guzman go to Miami. The keys are Wood and Latos, who will likely immediately join the Los Angeles rotation, as well as Johnson, who has been used as the Atlanta closer. The 24-year-old Wood hasn't performed as well this season as he did in 2014, but he is 7-6 with a 3.54 ERA and 90 strikeouts in 119 1/3 innings. Latos is 4-7 with a 4.48 ERA, but has come on strong. He has allowed just six earned runs in his last 26 innings pitched. Johnson has nine saves, but will almost certainly be used behind Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen.

      Diamondbacks, Braves announce three-player deal on Saturday

      The Diamondbacks announced that they have dealt right-hander Bronson Arroyo and Touki Toussaint (their No. 5 prospect) to the Braves in a three-player deal on Saturday. In exchange, the Braves will be sending infielder Phil Gosselin to the Diamondbacks. Arroyo made 14 starts for Arizona in 2014 before undergoing Tommy John surgery. He has yet to pitch this year, and is not expected back until at least August. The Braves will take on the entirety of Arroyo's contract, which includes $9.5 million for this year, and a $4.5 million buyout on a $13 million option for 2016, per Toussaint was a first-round draft pick (16th overall) by the Diamondbacks in 2014. The right-hander has been pitching with Class A Kane County this year, posting a 3.69 ERA through seven starts. Meanwhile, Gosselin underwent surgery to repare a fractured thumb in May. He is currently on the disabled list and holds a .325 batting average in 40 at-bats this year. The Diamondbacks seem satisfied with the current state of their pitching corps, allowing them to deal away Toussaint in the deal. "We are getting some good pitching from our young rotation and that's the direction we are going to go," D-Backs general manager Dave Stewart said.
