Seven teams have reached out with interest in signing right-hander Bronson Arroyo, a source has confirmed to MLB Daily Dish.
The teams include the Baltimore Orioles, San Francisco Giants, Minnesota Twins, Philadelphia Phillies, and three unknown clubs.
Arroyo has received at least one multi-year offer, but it is unclear from which team. His market seemed to pick up on Monday afternoon, as three new teams expressed interest in advance of the GM meetings in Orlando.
Three teams are being aggressive in their pursuit, but the source said that Arroyo will not rush to a decision and is looking to let the market develop.
According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, the Yankees are expected to pursue Arroyo as one of their many free-agent targets this winter. To this point, the team has not reached out to the right-hander with interest.
Arroyo, who turns 37 in February, is not expected to return to Cincinnati after spending the last eight seasons with the Reds. He has been one of the most consistent workhorses in the league throughout his career, making at least 32 starts in every season since 2005. He pitched to a 14-12 record with a 3.79 ERA in 32 starts for the Reds in 2013, and has posted a career 138-127 record in fourteen major league seasons with the Pirates (2000-2002), Red Sox (2003-2005), and Reds (2006-2013).
