Pitcher Bronson Arroyo has decided to undergo Tommy John surgery. While Arroyo had been hoping to pitch again this season he will now be out for a full year.
The 37-year-old Arroyo plans to pitch again in 2015 and for multiple seasons. In 14 starts this season Arroyo was 7-4 with a 4.08 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.
Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson also revealed that outfielder Mark Trumbo is expected to be activated after the All-Star break.
Trumbo is headed to Triple-A Reno for his rehab assignment.
Prior to his stress fracture in his left foot, Trumbo was batting .210/.264/.506 with seven homers and 19 RBI over 21 games.
While the 2014 season is a lost one for the Diamondbacks getting anything out of Trumbo at this point is a positive.
