Arroyo (3-6) allowed five runs on seven hits and no walks across three innings in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers. He struck out three.

Arroyo ran into trouble in a three-run second inning, in which opposing pitcher Kenta Maeda tagged him for a two-run double, and he allowed another pair on a two-run home run from Logan Forsythe in the third. He threw 76 percent of his pitches for strikes as he labored through three frames, but he missed over the plate with regularity and was made to pay the price. Now 40 years of age, Arroyo simply hasn't been ably to string solid outings together this season and has seen his ERA balloon to 7.35 through 71 innings. He is currently scheduled to start Saturday against the Nationals, but another poor outing could cost him his spot in the rotation.
