Diamondbacks land Bronson Arroyo on two-year deal

The Arizona Diamondbacks have landed free agent pitcher Bronson Arroyo on a two-year deal.

Arroyo, 36, will be paid $19 million according to ESPN’s Buster Olney. Things get interesting after that as the Diamondbacks hold an $11 million option for 2016 or can elect to pay a $4.5 million buyout. Basically the Diamondbacks will be determining if Arroyo is worth $6.5 million at his age 39 season.


The arrival of Arroyo in Arizona should have little effect on his numbers persay since he pitched at a similiar park in Great American with the Cincinnati Reds the last few seasons and performed well.

Arroyo brings durability and a good middle of the rotation arm to the Diamondbacks.
