Bronson Arroyo surrendered six earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Rockies.
Another ugly outing for the veteran right-hander, who holds a 6.75 ERA in nine starts covering 46 2/3 innings. He walked two and gave up nine hits Sunday, including a whopping four home runs. It might be time for the Reds to end this experiment. May 21 - 4:28 PM

Bronson Arroyo was tagged for five runs in five innings by the Cubs in a loss Tuesday.

It'd be great if Arroyo could be anything close to a decent starter for the Reds this year, but he has a 6.31 ERA right now and he's given up 11 homers in 41 1/3 innings. The Reds have to be getting close to replacing him.
May 17 - 12:00 AM

Bronson Arroyo turned in a quality start while taking a no-decision in Thursday's win over the Giants, surrendering two runs on six hits over six innings.

Arroyo yielded solo home runs to Brandon Belt and Denard Span, but otherwise kept the Giants off the scoreboard. He struck out three and walked one on the evening. The veteran right-hander has pitched well in his last two outings, surrendering four runs over his last 11 1/3 innings. He will try to keep things moving in the right direction when he carries a still-rough 5.94 ERA and 1.32 WHIP into a road start against the Cubs in his next scheduled outing.
May 12 - 12:56 AM

Bronson Arroyo delivered a solid outing in Friday's victory over the Giants, allowing two runs on five hits over 5 1/3 frames.

The veteran right-hander punched out four and walked one on the evening. He surrendered a solo homer to Christian Arroyo in the second inning and the Giants scratched out a second run in the fifth, but Arroyo was in command otherwise. Now 3-2 on the season, he'll look to further improve upon his disastrous 6.53 ERA when he does battle against these same Giants in San Francisco on Thursday.
May 5 - 11:54 PM

Bronson Arroyo allowed four earned runs over four-plus innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Cardinals.

Arroyo gave up the first run on a wild pitch in the bottom of the first. In the fifth, he loaded the bases with no outs and Matt Carpenter smacked a three-run double. Arroyo now holds a 7.20 ERA on the season and might not be long for the Reds' starting rotation, though it's not like they have a ton of better options.
Apr 30 - 5:49 PM

Bronson Arroyo held the Cubs to two earned runs over six innings Sunday in a Reds victory.

Arroyo served up a two-run homer to Anthony Rizzo in the top of the fourth inning but was otherwise sharp, striking out seven batters without issuing a walk and yielding just three total hits. The 40-year-old right-hander still has a 6.88 overall ERA on the season and can't be trusted in standard fantasy leagues.
Apr 23 - 3:43 PM

Bronson Arroyo picked up his first win since June of 2014 on Tuesday, holding the Orioles to three runs over five frames in a 9-3 victory.

Arroyo walked a couple batters and served up a two-run homer to Adam Jones, but he managed to strike out four batters and did enough for the victory. It was a big improvement over his first two starts, but the 40-year-old essentially remains on a start-to-start trial basis even with the Reds starved for starting pitching. Arroyo faces the Cubs on Sunday.
Apr 18 - 10:37 PM

Bronson Arroyo admitted after Thursday's loss versus the Brewers that he needs to show progress over the next two starts "or we might be at dead end."

For what it's worth, Reds manager Bryan Price indicated that he might be willing to have a longer leash than that with Arroyo. Either way, there's little disputing that the veteran righty allowing 11 runs over 10 innings of work in his first two starts isn't going to cut it. That the 40-year-old was able to make it back to the majors at all after his arm trouble the last couple years is a feat in and of itself, but we're almost surely nearing the end of the road here.
Apr 14 - 9:02 AM

Bronson Arroyo was knocked around by the Brewers on Thursday, allowing five runs on seven hits over six innings in a loss.

This wasn't as bad as his debut against the Cardinals, when he allowed six runs in four innings of work, but it had some of the same markings. Like in that start, the 40-year-old allowed two homers Thursday, and through two starts he's struck out just five batters. He's now got a 9.90 ERA. With the Reds not looking to contend this year -- despite their hot start to the season -- he'll likely have a little longer leash than other flailing starters. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Orioles.
Apr 14 - 8:08 AM

Bronson Arroyo lasted just four innings in his first big league start since 2014, allowing six hits, six runs and three walks Saturday in the Reds' loss to the Cardinals.

The 40-year-old labored through a tough first inning, yielding a solo home run to Aledmys Diaz, a walk to Matt Adams and an RBI double by Yadier Molina. He ran into trouble again in the fourth, this time allowing three hits (including Diaz's second home run of the game) and another walk. Arroyo finished with three strikeouts while mostly throwing in the low 80s. The right-hander's return to the mound after years of injuries is an inspiring comeback story, but it's not going to amount to much fantasy significance.
Apr 8 - 8:20 PM

Reds purchased the contract of RHP Bronson Arroyo from Triple-A Louisville.

Arroyo started the season in the minor leagues to give the Reds an extra bullpen arm until a fifth starter was needed. The 40-year-old hurler hasn't pitched in a big league game since the 2014 season and isn't a recommended fantasy option for Saturday's start against the Cardinals.
Apr 8 - 11:10 AM

Bronson Arroyo is on track to start Saturday in St. Louis after a successful 90-pitch simulated game on Sunday.

"Reports on everything he did were very, very positive," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "I'm really happy with how that worked out." Price wouldn't officially write Arroyo's name in in ink for Saturday yet but added that the righty "hasn't done anything to deter us from thinking he could make that start." It's cool that Arroyo has made it back to the majors at 40 and after missing 2 1/2 years following elbow and shoulder surgeries, but it's hard to imagine him having much success. He would seem to pretty much be on a start-to-start trial basis even with the Reds' lack of rotation depth.
Apr 3 - 5:04 PM

Reds re-assigned RHP Bronson Arroyo to minor league camp.

Arroyo is still projected to be part of the Reds' rotation as long as he comes out of a minor league start on Sunday with no issues. Cody Reed could fill in for one outing until Arroyo is ready.
Apr 2 - 11:04 AM

Bronson Arroyo is expected to be part of the Reds' rotation.

He won't officially be on the Opening Day roster, though, as Arroyo will make a minor league start on Sunday. That means Cody Reed will likely get an early-season start, although he'll be available out of the bullpen initially. Arroyo could make his season debut on April 8 in St. Louis. The 40-year-old will be making his first start in the majors since June of 2014.
Mar 28 - 11:04 PM

Bronson Arroyo allowed two runs on four hits over four innings in a loss to the White Sox on Thursday.

One of the hits was a two-run homer by Nick Delmonico. Arroyo walked one and struck out two while making his third start of the spring. He carries a 4.70 ERA with six strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings of action. Injuries to Homer Bailey and Anthony DeSclafani have granted Arroyo a strong chance of nabbing a rotation slot to begin the season. The 40-year-old missed the last two campaigns due to Tommy John surgery.
