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.
