News: Arroyo (3-4) gave up six runs over 5.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rockies. He allowed nine hits, including four homers, while walking two, hitting one and striking out four.
Impact: Despite Arroyo's ERA climbing to 6.75 with the outing, Reds manager Bryan Price doesn't intend to remove him from the starting rotation soon, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. "Certainly, he's a veteran pitcher. He's a quality human being and he's a big part of the culture here in our clubhouse," Price said. "It's a challenging game. It's unforgiving. It doesn't even respect the best of people or the best of pitchers and players. I just have a lot of optimism with him because he knows how to pitch and he's been a winner." We'll see how the plans are altered once some of the Reds' injured starters (Homer Bailey, Anthony DeSclafani and Brandon Finnegan) begin to return.
