Bronson Arroyo has decided to retire from baseball.
It was pretty much a foregone conclusion at this point and was made unofficially official with a pre- and post-game celebration Saturday. "It feels now like my senior year in high school and I’m ready to get out," Arroyo said. "I’m honestly ready to go." Arroyo, 40, won 148 games and posted a 4.28 ERA over 16 seasons for the Pirates, Red Sox, Reds and Diamondbacks. He made one All-Star team. Sun, Sep 24, 2017 09:44:00 AM

Reds transferred RHP Bronson Arroyo from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster. The 40-year-old Arroyo went down with a strained right shoulder earlier this month and could be headed for retirement.

Reds placed RHP Bronson Arroyo on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right shoulder.

Arroyo told reporters after Sunday's loss to the Dodgers that his shoulder has been "barking" for the last couple of weeks, and in the same conversation the 40-year-old right-hander mentioned possibly retiring. He's posted a 7.35 ERA in 14 starts this season for the Reds.

Bronson Arroyo hinted after Sunday's loss to the Dodgers that he is contemplating retirement.

The 40-year-old right-hander has been disastrous over 14 starts for the Reds in his comeback season, compiling a 7.35 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 71 innings. Arroyo admitted Sunday that his shoulder has been "barking" for a while now. "I think my arm is probably going to be checkmate," he said after another rough outing Sunday. It sounds like this could be the end of a 16-year MLB career.

Bronson Arroyo allowed five earned runs over three innings Sunday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Arroyo struck out the side in the top of the first inning, but the Dodgers pounced for three runs in the top of the second and three more runs in the top of the third. The veteran right-hander now has a 7.35 ERA in 14 starts this season for Cincinnati. It might be time to pull the plug.

Bronson Arroyo was tagged for nine runs and 13 hits in 4 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Padres.

Arroyo's finesse just isn't enough with his velocity lower than ever and balls flying out of parks at record pace. He's now given up 22 homers in 68 innings. The Reds will have to stop running him out there at some point.

Bronson Arroyo gave up four runs in 5 2/3 innings against the Cardinals on Wednesday.

As usual, he gave up a home run, this time he was fortunate it was just a solo shot by Matt Carpenter. He has given up 20 longballs in his 12 starts and is on pace to break the league record for homers allowed in a season (50 by Bert Blyleven in 1986). Arroyo allowed eight base hits, issued two walks and fanned four batters. His record holds at 3-4 while his ERA ticks up to 6.25 for the season. The 40-year-old has 40 strikeouts and 19 walks in 63 1/3 innings. His rotation slot could be in jeopardy when Homer Bailey, Anthony DeSclafani and Brandon Finnegan return from injury.

Bronson Arroyo yielded two runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Braves on Friday.

Arroyo gave up seven hits, including a solo homer to Dansby Swanson. He has now allowed an alarming 19 home runs in just 57 2/3 innings this season. His ERA sits at 6.24 through 11 starts. While this was a decent start for him, the 40-year-old is nearing the end of the road.

Bronson Arroyo allowed three solo home runs in five innings of work against the Phillies on Saturday.

All told he gave up three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four in the ballgame. He has given up 18 home runs in 10 starts and is on pace to break the all-time record of 50 homers allowed in a season (Bert Blyleven in 1986). Arroyo allowed 46 homers in 2011. The last seven runs he has allowed have all come on solo home runs. The 40-year-old has a 6.62 ERA in 51 2/3 innings. The Reds will keep running him out there because they need him to eat innings so badly due to multiple injuries in their starting rotation.

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.
Sun, May 21, 2017 04:28:00 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
