Rotowire: Nov 18 / 2:19p ET
News: Arroyo (elbow) said Wednesday that his arm feels great and that he should be ready to go come spring training, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: The right-hander missed all of 2015 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in July of 2014, but Arroyo said he's finally had the resulting scar tissue in his elbow break up. Currently a free agent after the Dodgers declined his team option, Arroyo will turn 39 before the start of the 2016 season. However, there is reportedly mutual interest in a return to the Reds, with whom Arroyo spent eight seasons from 2006-2013.
Rotowire: Nov 6 / 2:39p ET
News: Arroyo (elbow) had his team option declined Friday, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reports.
Impact: Arroyo missed the entire season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in July of 2014, but was traded to the Dodgers as a way for Atlanta to dump his salary. He'll be 38 years old by the start of the 2016 season and won't have pitched for nearly two years, but he should get the opportunity to join the end of a starting rotation.
