Bronson Arroyo told John Fay of WCPO Cincinnati that he's interested in returning to the Reds.
Arroyo said he had breakfast with Reds manager Bryan Price on Wednesday morning and the two discussed the possibility of a reunion. "I’d love to come back here," said Arroyo. "I’m so comfortable here." Arroyo turns 39 in February and missed the entire 2015 season while in rehab mode from Tommy John surgery, but he expects to be healthy for spring training. He'll likely have to settle for an incentive-laden deal and could make sense as a veteran arm on a young and inexperienced staff in Cincinnati. Nov 18 - 4:23 PM

Dodgers declined RHP Bronson Arroyo's $11 million option for 2016.

Arroyo will receive a $4.5 million buyout instead, which means he'll have made $14 million this season despite not throwing a pitch following Tommy John surgery. Slated to turn 39 in February, Arroyo might not be able to find a guaranteed deal this winter.
Nov 6 - 5:30 PM

Dodgers acquired RHP Bronson Arroyo from the Braves in the 13-player, three-team Hector Olivera trade.

Atlanta acquired Arroyo from the Diamondbacks on June 20, but he'll leave the organization without throwing a single pitch in a Braves uniform. The veteran right-hander underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last July and probably isn't going to be back near full strength until late August or early September. It's a salary dump for Atlanta: Arroyo is making $9.5 million this season and carries a $4.5 million buyout on his option for 2016.
Jul 30 - 4:30 PM

Braves acquired RHPs Bronson Arroyo and Touki Toussaint from the Diamondbacks for INF Phil Gosselin.

Arroyo underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last July and probably won't be ready to pitch for the Braves until sometime in August. But his part in this trade isn't really about anything on-field. Atlanta basically agreed to eat the remainder of the 38-year-old right-hander's contract to land Toussaint, a top-100 prospect. Arroyo is making $9.5 million this season and carries a $4.5 million buyout for 2016.
Jun 20 - 11:46 PM

Diamondbacks placed RHP Bronson Arroyo on the 60-day disabled list with a right elbow injury.

Arroyo underwent Tommy John surgery last July. The veteran might be able to play again in August, though his rehab is still in relative infancy. Arroyo's now 37 years old and has a long road ahead of him.

Bronson Arroyo (elbow) is playing catch at 75 feet.

Arroyo underwent Tommy John elbow surgery last July and probably won't be an option for the Diamondbacks until sometime in August. The veteran right-hander is due $9.5 million this season and carries an $11 million club option (or $4.5 million buyout) for 2016.
Feb 19 - 1:43 PM

Diamondbacks activated RHP Bronson Arroyo from the 60-day disabled list.

Arroyo, of course, missed the last few months of the season following Tommy John surgery. He's shooting to be ready for Opening Day, but most likely it will be later than that when he rejoins the Arizona rotation.

Bronson Arroyo underwent successful Tommy John surgery on Tuesday.

The operation was performed by Drs. Michael Lee and Don Sheridan. Arroyo, who is in the first year of a two-year, $19 million contract, will be sidelined until the second half of the 2015 campaign.

Bronson Arroyo has decided to undergo Tommy John surgery.

Arroyo had been hoping to rehab the sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, but he had an MRI last month which showed the UCL had come completely off the bone. A date for surgery hasn't been set, but having the operation soon should give him a chance to return in the second half of 2015. Arroyo, 37, said Monday that he's determined to pitch for a couple more seasons.

Bronson Arroyo (elbow) played catch without difficulty on Friday.

It's the first step in the recovery process for the veteran right-hander who is attempting to pitch through a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow rather than opting for Tommy John surgery. While he felt good Friday, it's still a longshot that he returns to be a contributor in mixed leagues at any point this season.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Saturday that Bronson Arroyo (elbow) is close to resuming activity.

Arroyo couldn't straighten his arm out fully in the middle of last week, but he's evidently made progress over the last few days. "The thought is he's getting closer," Gibson said. "It's getting to time where he's gonna think about doing some stuff." Arroyo will try to pitch through a sprained ulnar collateral ligament, but Tommy John surgery remains a distinct possibility.

Bronson Arroyo has been diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Arroyo will be shut down for 10 days to see how the elbow responds. Obviously the hope is that rest and rehab work, but Tommy John surgery is always a possibility when the UCL is involved. Arroyo pitched through elbow pain for a few weeks before finally landing on the disabled list for the first time in his career on Monday.

The Diamondbacks are awaiting the results of an MRI performed on Bronson Arroyo's right elbow.

The D'Backs think Arroyo is just dealing with tendinitis, but they sent him for the MRI just to be safe. The hope is that Arroyo, who has dealt with the elbow issue for a few weeks, will be fine after a couple weeks of rest. "I think the last three times he's went out there, he's been at about 50 percent," general manager Kevin Towers said. "It's pretty amazing that he's posted the type of numbers [he has]."

Diamondbacks placed RHP Bronson Arroyo on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow tendinitis.

It's the first time during his 15-year career that the veteran right-hander has landed on the DL. Arroyo's elbow ailment first cropped up late last month, and it came to a head when he had to depart Sunday's outing. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. The D'Backs haven't named a rotation replacement yet, but Randall Delgado is an option.

Bronson Arroyo allowed one run on five hits over five innings in a win over the Dodgers on Sunday.

It was a typical Arroyo start -- some hits allowed, but just one walk and one strikeout, and most importantly, just one run given up. The right-hander has now won three straight to run his record to 7-4. Arroyo will take a 4.08 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into his start against the Giants on Friday.
