Yeah, I misunderstood the original reports.
Apparently it's $19 million for two years of salary and $4.3 million buyout.
So for two years of pitching Arroyo gets $23.5 million. That's a bit under $12 million per year all included.
Seems fair, but still would not justify a qualifying offer by the Reds. Reds clearly made the correct decision.
