Bronson+Arroyo+Cincinnati+Reds+v+Pittsburgh+cxRq0SVt2Obl

The Los Angeles Dodgers still have their sights set on signing another starting pitcher and their first choice might be free agent Bronson Arroyo. The Dodgers remain in active talks with the veteran right hander and after losing out in the Masahiro Tanaka sweepstakes, they were immediately linked to the soon-to-be 37-year-old starter.

Arroyo has had trouble receiving legitimate offers this off-season as he’s reportedly seeking a three year deal, but at 36 years old, his price tag seems too high. If the season were to start today, Josh Beckett would be the fifth starter in the rotation, but the addition of Arroyo would give the Dodgers great depth.

Arroyo has been one of the most consistent and durable pitchers in the majors and last year he posted a record of 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA. In 32 starts last year, he had a WHIP of 1.15, but surrendered 32 home runs. The Dodgers already have one of the best rotations in baseball, but signing Arroyo would take some question out of the back end of the rotation.
