Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Retiring after 2017 season
Arroyo (shoulder) will retire following the 2017 season, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Arroyo pitched 14 games this season before being placed on the disabled list with a shoulder injury at the latter end of June. It had been believed that his professional career would come to an end following the season, and that will indeed be the case. During his 16-year career, Arroyo threw for a 4.28 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over 419 games.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Career likely over
Arroyo (shoulder) is unlikely to ever pitch again as a professional.
He is on the 60-day DL with a shoulder injury, so there likely won't be an official retirement until after the season, but he won't be pitching again. Arroyo was a fantasy-relevant pitcher from 2004 to 2013, even though he was always below average in terms of strikeouts. He's notched 148 wins and has a career 4.28 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 1,571 strikeouts in 2,435.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Transferred to 60-day DL
Arroyo (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday.
Arroyo landed on the disabled list last week with a right shoulder strain, and it now appears the injury will keep him sidelined until at least mid-August. The 40-year-old has struggled to a 7.35 ERA and 1.60 WHIP through 14 starts (71 innings) this season, leading him to contemplate retirement. With Arroyo not occupying a 40-man spot while on the 60-day DL, the Reds will give him ample time to recover before he ultimately makes a decision about his future with the team. Brandon Finnegan (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day DL in a corresponding roster move.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Hits disabled list with shoulder strain
Arroyo was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday with a right shoulder strain.
This move comes on the heels of Arroyo's loss to the Dodgers on Sunday, after which he admitted that his bothersome shoulder had him contemplating retirement. The 40-year-old has struggled so far this season, compiling a 7.35 ERA and 1.60 WHIP through 71 innings. He'll head to the disabled list to allow his shoulder to fully recover before ultimately making a decision about his future with the Reds. Ariel Hernandez was recalled from Double-A Pensacola in a corresponding move to fortify the bullpen, but it's not immediately clear who will replace Arroyo in the rotation for his next scheduled turn Friday against the Nationals....

Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Considering retirement after Sunday's loss
Arroyo said his shoulder was "barking" after his start Sunday against the Dodgers and acknowledged that he's considering retirement, MLB.com reports.
After allowing five runs on seven hits and three walks over a season-low three innings Sunday, Arroyo said he had "some tears" in his shoulder that he'd been addressing through cortisone shots, but given the results he's seen this season, that treatment method clearly isn't having the desired effect. With a 7.35 ERA over 71 innings this season for a team that now sits 10 games under .500, the 40-year-old Arroyo doesn't offer much value to a club in rebuilding mode and probably hasn't pitched well enough to fetch interest on the trade market either. Considering he's pitched in 16 major-league seasons, dating all the way back to 2000, there's no shame in calling it quits here.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Tagged for five runs in loss to Dodgers
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.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Gives up 13 hits, nine runs against Padres
Arroyo allowed nine runs on 13 hits over 4.2 innings in Monday's loss to the Padres. He struck out two and did not issue a walk.
With two more home runs allowed Monday, Arroyo's major-league-leading total now sits at 22 through 63.1 innings. The 40-year-old has a 7.01 ERA and 1.56 WHIP, and he has just three quality starts in 13 turns this year. The Reds have praised Arroyo as a clubhouse leader and by all accounts will continue to let him eat innings, at least until a few other starters get healthy.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Shaky outing Wednesday
Arroyo (3-4) gave up four runs on eight hits and two walks over 5.2 innings while striking out four but escaped with a no-decision in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Cardinals.
The veteran righty was on the hook for a loss until the Reds rallied for five runs in the seventh inning. Arroyo is now stumbling along with a 6.25 ERA and 1.47 WHIP, but he could be in a good spot for a rebound outing in his next start Monday in San Diego.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Receives no-decision Saturday
Arroyo (3-4) allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four across five innings but didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Phillies.
Arroyo gave up three solo homers to account for all of the damage, and after the Reds came up with a run in the sixth inning, he was taken off the hook for a potential loss. With a 6.62 ERA on the year, he's an extremely weak fantasy option. He'll make his next start Friday against the Braves.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Slides back to start Saturday
Arroyo will make his next scheduled start Saturday against the Phillies, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Arroyo was initially tabbed for Friday night, but with Thursday's contest in Cleveland getting rained out, he'll move back a day to keep Tim Adleman on track to start. Arroyo will now take on Jerad Eickhoff in the second game of the series.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Hit hard in loss to Rockies
Arroyo (3-4) gave up six runs over 5.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rockies. He allowed nine hits, including four homers, while walking two, hitting one and striking out four.
Despite Arroyo's ERA climbing to 6.75 with the outing, Reds manager Bryan Price doesn't intend to remove him from the starting rotation soon, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. "Certainly, he's a veteran pitcher. He's a quality human being and he's a big part of the culture here in our clubhouse," Price said. "It's a challenging game. It's unforgiving. It doesn't even respect the best of people or the best of pitchers and players. I just have a lot of optimism with him because he knows how to pitch and he's been a winner." We'll see how the plans are altered once some of the Reds' injured starters (Homer Bailey, Anthony DeSclafani and Brandon Finnegan) begin to return.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Hit hard in loss Tuesday
Arroyo (3-3) allowed five earned runs on eight hits and two walks in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs. He struck out one.
Arroyo was working himself out of trouble from the outset of this contest, allowing four runs in the first two innings, including a 462-foot bomb to Kyle Schwarber. The rocky outing inflated Arroyo's ERA to an ugly 6.31 on the season. Although he threw the ball well in his last two outings prior to this loss, it's hard to recommend him even as a streaming option at this point. He draws a tough matchup on Sunday against the Rockies.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Bronson Arroyo: Solid effort in no-decision against Giants
Arroyo (3-2) held the Giants to two runs over six innings Thursday, giving up six hits (including two solo homers) and a walk, striking out three.
Arroyo left the game with a 2-2 tie, and the Reds rallied later to get the win. Because he's such a low-strikeout pitcher (only once has he topped four strikeouts in an outing), he's very difficult to roster. but he's starting to fulfill the role the Reds envisioned when they signed him. Starting the last two games against the Giants has helped. His next two starts are at Wrigley Field against the Cubs, then home against the Rockies.... See More ... See Less
