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]."

Diamondbacks placed RHP Bronson Arroyo on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow tendinitis.

It's the first time during his 15-year career that the veteran right-hander has landed on the DL. Arroyo's elbow ailment first cropped up late last month, and it came to a head when he had to depart Sunday's outing. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. The D'Backs haven't named a rotation replacement yet, but Randall Delgado is an option.

Bronson Arroyo was given a cortisone shot in his right elbow after Friday's start against the Reds.

Arroyo has now dealt with a sore elbow in each of his last two outings. It doesn't appear at this point that he's in danger of missing his next start, but we'll just have to wait and see if the shot takes its desired effect. Arroyo holds a 4.39 ERA this season but put up a 2.49 mark in May.

Facing his former team for the first time, Bronson Arroyo gave up five runs in seven innings to take a loss to the Reds on Friday.

It was a grand slam from Devin Mesoraco that did him in during the second. Arroyo spent eight years with the Reds before not being invited back last winter, so this one was probably a little weird for him. He gave up five runs for the fourth time this year, but he had been pitching much better lately, allowing one or no runs in four of his previous five starts. Unfortunately, he has a tougher assignment coming up next week against the Rockies in Coors Field.
