Bronson Arroyo SP CIN 13 Days
According to Jim Bowden, the Angels are interested in free agent Bronson Arroyo.
Bowden also notes that they are in on Bartolo Colon as well, but are not close to a deal with either free agent hurler. The 36-year-old has been an extremely reliable option, logging at least 199 innings in each of the last nine seasons, and would fit nicely in the Angels rotation behind Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press hears that while the Twins have yet to offer Bronson Arroyo a three-year deal, they've "given indications they are willing to do so."
They're surely going to have to go to three years in order to get something done. Arroyo will turn 37 in February, but he's arguably the game's most durable pitcher and has a pretty consistent, albeit unspectacular, track record. In addition to the Twins, the Giants, Phillies, Dodgers, Angels and Orioles have also expressed interest in the veteran right-hander.

Giants assistant GM Bobby Evans said Tuesday that signing Bronson Arroyo remains a possibility.
San Francisco agreed Monday to a two-year, $23 million free agent contract with veteran right-hander Tim Hudson, but the club wants one more reliable starting pitcher to pair with Hudson, Madison Bumgarner, Matt Cain and Tim Lincecum. Arroyo, 36, posted a 3.79 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 202 innings this past season for the Reds. He's one of the most durable pitchers in baseball.

Bronson Arroyo said during an appearance on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Monday that the Phillies, Dodgers, Angels, Twins and Orioles have all expressed interest in him.
However, he has yet to receive an offer. While Arroyo and his agent have floated the Mets as a possibility, it doesn't appear that the interest is mutual as of yet. Reports have linked the Giants to Arroyo, but they could be out of the mix after reportedly agreeing to a deal with Tim Hudson.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, free agent Bronson Arroyo is engaged in ongoing talks with the Giants.
Arroyo has also been drawing serious interest from the Phillies and Twins. He's one of the more durable starting pitchers in baseball and has been able to register solid ERAs in hitter-friendly home parks despite a lack of overly dominant raw stuff. The 36-year-old righty is not tied to draft pick compensation and seems certain to find a multi-year contract this winter.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that talks between the Twins and Bronson Arroyo are "heating up."
Berardino adds that the Twins "have been examining Arroyo's medical records and are discussing guarantee language with his reps." The veteran right-hander would provide some much-needed stability for the Twins' rotation, as he's arguably the most durable pitcher in the game and has posted a sub-4.00 ERA four of the last five seasons.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Phillies and Twins have expressed interest in Bronson Arroyo.
Cafardo also lists the Giants, which was reported on Friday by ESPN's Buster Olney. Arroyo's upside isn't high, but he's arguably the most durable pitcher in the game and should receive interest from a number of clubs this offseason.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Giants are "well-positioned in the bidding" for Bronson Arroyo.
Olney adds the caveat that it depends on "how the offers develop from other teams," but it seems that the Giants are certainly making the veteran right-hander a priority. Arroyo reportedly prefers to pitch on the East Coast, but if the Giants throw enough money his way, he could surely be swayed. While not one of the sexier names on the market, Arroyo is durable and would probably fare reasonably well at spacious AT&T Park.

Free agent starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo is "an East Coast guy" who "would definitely consider the Mets," according to his agent, Terry Bross.
"I definitely think the Mets are a team that I would look at," Arroyo said in September. Arroyo has stated that he's looking for a two-year deal worth around $30 million. Arroyo, who will turn 37 in February, has logged at least 199 innings in every season since 2005. The Mets saved almost $20 million off the 2014 payroll on Monday when they declined Johan Santana's contract option. Expect that money to go to another starter, as the Mets must find a rotation replacement for Matt Harvey.

Bronson Arroyo won't get a qualifying offer from the Reds.
It would have been a one-year, $14.1 million offer. Arroyo told the Boston Globe last month that he wants a three-year deal this winter in free agency and he has a better shot of getting it now that he's not tied to draft pick compensation. The 36-year-old right-hander registered a 3.79 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 202 innings this summer.
