Arroyo (shhoulder) will retire following the 2017 season, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Arroyo pitched 14 games this season before being placed on the disabled list with a shoulder injury at the latter end of June. It had been believed that his professional career would come to an end following the season, and that will indeed be the case. During his 16-year career, Arroyo threw for a 4.28 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over 419 games.

Arroyo (shoulder) is unlikely to ever pitch again as a professional.

EDGE Analysis

He is on the 60-day DL with a shoulder injury, so there likely won't be an official retirement until after the season, but he won't be pitching again. Arroyo was a fantasy-relevant pitcher from 2004 to 2013, even though he was always below-average in terms of strikeouts. He notched 148 wins and has a career 4.28 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 1,571 strikeouts in 2,435.2 innings.

Arroyo (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Arroyo landed on the disabled list last week with a right shoulder strain, and it now appears the injury will keep him sidelined until at least mid-August. The 40-year-old has struggled to a 7.35 ERA and 1.60 WHIP through 14 starts (71 innings) this season, leading him to contemplate retirement. With Arroyo not occupying a 40-man spot while on the 60-day DL, the Reds will give him ample time to recover before he ultimately makes a decision about his future with the team. Brandon Finnegan (shoulder) was returned from the 60-day DL in a corresponding roster move.

Arroyo was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday with a right shoulder strain.

EDGE Analysis

This move comes on the heels of Arroyo's loss to the Dodgers on Sunday, after which he admitted his bothersome shoulder had him contemplating retirement. The 40-year-old has struggled so far this season, compiling a 7.35 ERA and 1.60 WHIP through 71 innings. He'll head to the disabled list to allow his shoulder to fully recover before ultimately making a decision about his future with the Reds. Ariel Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move, while his replacement in the rotation has yet to be named.

Arroyo's shoulder is "barking" and the aging starter is considering retirement, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Arroyo said he has "some tears in my shoulder that we've been masking with cortisone for a while" and said his arm is "probably going to be checkmate." He allowed five runs over three innings in Sunday's loss and saw his ERA balloon to 7.35. Considering Arroyo has pitched in 16 major league seasons, dating all the way back to 2000, there's no shame in calling it quits here.

Arroyo (3-6) allowed five runs on seven hits and no walks across three innings in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

Arroyo ran into trouble in a three-run second inning, in which opposing pitcher Kenta Maeda tagged him for a two-run double, and he allowed another pair on a two-run home run from Logan Forsythe in the third. He threw 76 percent of his pitches for strikes as he labored through three frames, but he missed over the plate with regularity and was made to pay the price. Now 40 years of age, Arroyo simply hasn't been ably to string solid outings together this season and has seen his ERA balloon to 7.35 through 71 innings. He is currently scheduled to start Saturday against the Nationals, but another poor outing could cost him his spot in the rotation.

Arroyo allowed nine runs on 13 hits over 4.2 innings in Monday's loss to the Padres. He struck out two and did not issue a walk.

EDGE Analysis

With two more home runs allowed Monday, Arroyo's major-league leading total now sits at an even 20 through 63.1 innings. The 40-year-old has a 7.01 ERA and 1.56 WHIP, and he has just three quality starts in 13 turns this year. The Reds have praised Arroyo as a clubhouse leader and by all accounts will continue to let him eat innings, at least until a few other starters get healthy.

Arroyo (3-4) gave up four runs on eight hits and two walks over 5.2 innings while striking out four but escaped with a no-decision in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty was on the hook for a loss until the Reds rallied for five runs in the seventh inning. Arroyo is now stumbling along with a 6.25 ERA and 1.47 WHIP, but he could be in a good spot for a rebound outing in his next start Monday in San Diego.

Arroyo (3-4) allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four across five innings, but didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Arroyo gave up three solo homers to account for all of the damage, and after the Reds came up with a run in the sixth inning, he was taken off the hook for a potential loss. With a 6.62 ERA on the year, he's an extremely weak fantasy option. He'll make his next start Friday against the Braves.

Arroyo will make his next scheduled start Saturday against the Phillies, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Arroyo was initially tabbed for Friday night, but with Thursday's contest in Cleveland getting rained out, he'll move back a day to keep Tim Adleman on track to start. Arroyo will now take on Jerad Eickhoff in the second game of the series.
