Re: Bronson Arroyo agrees to two-year contract extension
Per John Fay. Cyclone's numbers are pretty much right.
Two days after signing their No. 1 starter through at least 2010, the Reds made the same move with No. 1A. Right-hander Bronson Arroyo agreed to a two-year extension Thursday with an option for 2011.
That means Arroyo and Aaron Harang will be in the rotation for at least the next four years.
The new deal pushes Arroyo's deal to $33.07 million, including the buyout. It pledged $25 million in new money. The deal is an extension of the three-year deal Arroyo signed with Boston Jan. 19 of last year. It was to pay him $3.8 million this season.
Hard to argue with $33Million over 4 years.
