I’m told the
#MNTwins will meet with Arroyo’s agent this afternoon.
Arroyo, despite his age, 37, is one of the more stable pitchers in the game and considering he wasn’t given a one-year qualifying offer by the Cincinnati Reds, he won’t require teams to forfeit a draft pick like so many other ‘top’ available starters.
The Twins are far from the only team interested or even scheduled to meet with Arroyo and/or his representatives, though they seem determined to re-tool their rotation and have spent considerable amounts to do so.
Arroyo would give the Twins a relatively deep (though not exactly overpowering) top three, assuming he was to sign.
