The Diamondbacks officially put Arroyo (elbow) on the 60-day DL on Saturday.

The move clears up space on their 40-man roster but doesn't really change Arroyo's status - he wasn't due back until some point after the All-Star break.

Arroyo (elbow) will open the season on the DL, Zach Buchanan of the Arizona Republic reports.

He's recovering from Tommy John surgery, and will likely get back in the Arizona rotation at some point after the All-Star break.

Arroyo (elbow) is expected to return before the All-Star break, the Arizona Republic reports.

It will be interesting to see if that timetable holds up as Arroyo continues to move forward in his recovery. He had the procedure on July 11, which would require him to return within 366 days of the operation in order to pitch ahead of the 2015 All-Star break. At the very least, the aggressive timetable being offered up suggests that he's progressed well to this point in rehab.

Bronson Arroyo has decided to undergo Tommy John surgery.

Arroyo didn't have any issues after he played catch last Friday following a few weeks of down time. However, the veteran right-hander has ultimately decided that it's best to go ahead and have his sprained ulnar collateral ligament operated on. He'll be sidelined until around midseason next year.

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 waiting on 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]."
