MLB Rumors: Dodgers may have offered Bronson Arroyo contract


The Los Angeles Dodgers have spent the past few days speaking to Bronson Arroyo‘s representatives.

Arroyo, who recently expressed confusion as to why he didn’t have a deal yet was courted by the Dodgers earlier this offseason, though Los Angeles decided to go a different way.

Now with Arroyo still without a team and the Dodgers somewhat in need of a fifth starter, it appears the two sides are getting closer to an agreement as Buster Olney believes Arroyo could sign with the Dodgers, assuming he’s open to a two-year contract.

If Bronson Arroyo wants to pitch for the Dodgers, I’d bet there’s a two-year deal there waiting for him.

Arroyo has reportedly demanded a three-year contract all offseason, which normally wouldn’t be that excessive but considering he’s 37-years-old, teams have been hesitant to lay down that type of guarantee.

Still, with pitchers and catchers set to report in just days, Arroyo may have to settle for a two-year deal if he wants to pitch this season and there are few better opportunities than with the Dodgers.
