• Arroyo joins D-backs on two-year contract

    Summary of 9 articles · Updated Feb 10, 2014
    The D-backs agreed to terms with Arroyo late last week on a two-year deal with a club option that guarantees the right-hander $23.5 million. Arroyo, however, would not cost a Draft pick. Free agent pitcher Bronson Arroyo has reached agreement on a two-year contract with an option year, a baseball source told ESPN.com. Chase will actually serve as an upgrade in surroundings. The D-backs did not officially announce the signing of free agent Bronson Arroyo on Saturday because the right-hander still must undergo a physical exam, but his new teammates expressed their approval of the move. Matt Garza was another pitcher the D-backs had interest in, but he was able to get a four-year deal from the Brewers. The D-backs have been seeking a starting pitcher all winter, exploring trade possibilities for the Rays' David Price and the Cubs' Jeff Samardzija, and they were one of the finalists for the services of right-hander Masahiro Tanaka, who signed a $155 million deal with the Yankees. Well, apparently things changed quickly for the veteran right-hander in the days that followed, because not only has he received offers reportedly from up to three teams but he officially agreed to a contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks late Friday afternoon.
