Yankees Spoke With Bronson Arroyo Last Week

The New York Yankees are "casting a wide net" on the remaining free agents in the league and that net reached out to free agent pitcher Bronson Arroyo last week. This was obviously before the Masahiro Tanaka decision was handed down so definitely Arroyo is being classified as a Plan B or C, I hope anyway. The Yankees were also interested earlier in the offseason for the right handed innings eater from the Cincinnati Reds and Boston Red Sox.

Arroyo is 36 years old and while his numbers look good, 3.79 ERA in 202 innings, I think his stuff would not translate well back into the AL East. He did pitch in one of the better hitters parks in the league in the Great American Ball Park but he also faced the pitcher two or three times a night too, which helps. Arroyo's value is in his durability as he has pitched at least 199 innings in the last nine seasons consecutively.

Again he is definitely not a Plan A and should not be a Plan B either but he would definitely fill a need, a need of 200 innings to take the toll off the bullpen.
