The ESPN scribe noted on Twitter this afternoon that Arroyo will either sign with the Los Angeles Dodgers or Arizona Diamondbacks.
Arroyo had been in the market for a three-year deal throughout the entire free agent process but recently had to back off such a demand as no team would shell out that type of contract for a 37-year-old arm.
It was reported earlier in the week that the Arizona Diamondbacks held a slight advantage in signing Arroyo, though it’s unknown if such an advantage still exists.
The former Cincinnati Reds pitcher would likely fill in as either a fourth or fifth starter for both the Dodgers and Diamondbacks.
The Toronto Blue Jays were also said to have interest in Arroyo, but apparently they’ve decided against such or the interest was not mutual.
