The Boston Globe is reporting today that the Cincinnati Reds may be looking to clear some payroll, and the first piece to move may be starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo.
Arroyo who is earning $9.5 million this year as part of a two-year $25 million deal, could be a valuable chip for the Reds.
With injuries to Peavy, Bedard, Hallday, and now Matsuzaka (which creates the likely hood that Brad Penny won't be dealt), the starting pitcher market is very thin.
Arroyo would probably shoot right near the top of the list for teams looking to acquire a starting pitcher.
This year Arroyo is 8-5 with a 5.16 ERA in 14 appearances.
Expect several teams to be interested including the, Yankees, Phillies, Mets, Dodgers and Angels.
