    Arroyo Being Shopped????

    http://www.boston.com/sports/basebal...slumps/?page=4

    Via Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe


    2. Bronson Arroyo, RHP, Reds: One of the hot rumors among the scouting community is that the Reds are dangling one of their veteran pitchers in an effort to get younger and reduce payroll. Arroyo, whose name has come up in the past, is earning $9.5 million this season as part of a two-year, $25 million deal. He will earn $11 million next season and has a $2 million buyout on an $11 million option in 2011. With starting pitching hard to find, the Reds could get a decent return.
    MLBTR suggests it could also be Harang.

    This trade almost has to happen. He is eminently replaceable and a huge hindrance considering the payroll freeze (which is unlikely to thaw in the next several seasons).

    No news there. Anyone looking at the Reds would see that as the most likely place to deal with them.

    With Brad Penny as "the big name pitcher available" the market should be strong for Arroyo from a number of teams. With Dice-K to the DL long term there is no hurry for Penny to be moved either. the

    It's true that we've known that those two (Arroyo/Harang) were the most marketable. I wonder if there was a team we could match up with that needs a starting pitcher but has a decent offensive player they could swap that could help us this season.

    I can't imagine a deal involving Arroyo being anything but a salary dump. I have no problem with that.

    So, any suggestions as to where to send him?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Toronto? The injury bug has hit their rotation.

    It will likely be tough to trade Arroyo if a significant part of the return is legit talent.

    Not if you package him right. My preference wouldn't be trading Arroyo alone, but a multi-player deal involving ours/theirs prospects as well.

    My thought is that possbile suitors would include the Phillies, Rangers and anyone who had spent the time to look at Pedro.

    Not in this market. For once the Reds are actually on the right side of the market with this one. Jarrod Washburn is the only pitcher available at the moment who might be more desirable than Arroyo and even that could be debated.

    The Reds should get a good return on Arroyo, especially if he can string together a few decent outings over the next month and guys like Peavy and Bedard stay on the shelf.
