    Arroyo drilled in pitching wrist

    In today's game Arroyo was smoked in his pitching wrist by a line drive. He has been taken to a local medical facility for X-Rays. After speaking with the trainer Dusty slumped down in the dugout.

    Anyone know who would be next in line assuming Arroyo can't go?

    I imagine that Cingrani/Corcino would be next in line, likely depending more on who has looked better this spring (in all ST, not just in big league camp - though perhaps even big league camp makes the difference since Dusty saw first hand who was doing what at the time).

    I doubt it would happen, but it's not too late to have Chapman replace Arroyo if Arroyo is out for any period of time.

    Ahhh, but it it happened, think of the wonderful polar opposite irony of it... (Yes I know this is now a moot point, but I still wanted to mention it)

    Last year an early spring training injury to the newest Red forced Chapman from the rotation to the bullpen.

    This year, a late spring training injury to the most tenured Red could have forced him from the bullpen to the rotation.

    Maybe throw LeCure in the rotation, allowing Hoover to start the year with the team?

    If Arroyo is really hurt, this is bad.

    LeCure to the rotation would be a bad idea. He can't make it through a second turn of any lineup. Two plus innings and he's fine. After that, he's toast.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Arroyo's x-rays were negative. "They did a flora-scope. It was clean." Expects to make his next spring training start. #reds #cincienquirer

    WHEW!

    I'd probably want to hold him back a start, though.

    My memory is going so help me. In all his years with the Reds has Bronson ever missed a start? Even when he had the mono. Sure doesn't seem like it.

    I may be mistaken but I think Arroyo has NEVER missed a start in his entire professional career. I think his streak even goes back to Little League. I read something to that effect earlier this year.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    I think that was yesterday when Latos got his ankle x-ray back that was negative.
