When free agency began a few months ago, the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants zeroed in on pitcher Bronson Arroyo.

Arroyo’s former team, the Cincinnati Reds declined to make a qualifying offer to the 37-year-old pitcher meaning any team that signed Arroyo wouldn’t need to forfeit a draft pick. That made Arroyo extremely intriguing but his three-year contract demands scared teams away and both the Dodgers and Giants (among others) walked away.

The pitcher still remains a free agent as he continues to search for that hopeful three-year deal and has recently talked to the Los Angeles Angels about a deal. He’s also apparently spoken to the Dodgers yet again, this according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports:

arroyo’s people also had conversation with los angeles dodgers after tanaka went to yanks. uncertain how interested LAD is tho.

The Dodgers have a stacked rotation and Arroyo isn’t exactly needed, though if he can be had for a cheap deal it’s hard to imagine Los Angeles passing on such an opportunity.
