Bronson Arroyo Obtains Ten And Five Rights

Bronson Arroyo didn’t play in yesterday’s game against the Giants, but it was a significant contest for the right-hander nonetheless. Arroyo now has ten and five rights and cannot be traded without his permission.  

Arroyo began the year with nine years and 150 days of MLB service and yesterday marked the 22nd day of the Reds’ season. Nine years and 172 days equates to ten years of service for the 35-year-old, and his last six-plus seasons have been spent in Cincinnati.

Players who have accumulated ten years of Major League service time can't be traded without their permission if they have spent the last five years with their current club. If the Reds trade Arroyo, deferred payments on his current contract are voided and paid up-front by his new team, so it’s especially hard to imagine a trade in his case.

    Like that contract was going to be moved anyways…

  3. Why are you both bashing Arroyo? He’s one of the most consistant Starters in the bigs. Oh well he had one bad year. Every player does. Arroyo wins a lot of games, puts up a lot of innings and has been a horse again this year. And he has only given up 2 home runs in 4 starts so far with an ERA in the 2’s. Bronson is one of the three big staples in the rotation with Johnny Cueto and Mat Latos.

      Don’t expect the ERA in the 2s to continue, but I agree he’s better then these guys say. Always has been a very consistent filler in the rotation.

      Because he is barely over .500 with the Reds, and has an excuse for every bad outing…CT, Mono, this yr he will develop a broken hair follicle…while he is definitely looking good this yr…we are about due for a blow up start…any way you cut it it is a BAD contract!

        Arroyo would be fine if the Reds had not sold the future to win this year , having said that only San Diego or the Dodgers have a ball park that would allow him a comfort zone.I don’t think either wants to venture there.

    This is another poor callulation by the gm Jocketty ,as far as trade it would have to a player of like problems for him and he still wouldn’t go, thanks be to the ownership who has allowed the Reds to be fleeced.

    His deal really isn’t bad, I don’t know what the fuss is about.  He’s being compensated an equivalent of $28.9M / 3 years for playing from 2011-13.

      Apparently you feel wasting money on starting pitchers who don’t perform up to league average is a given rite of the Reds—-I belive with that money we could add guys like Johnny Gomes,kEPPINGER and even Matt Maloney who may be better going forth with the use of Chapman as a starter.

  6. Does anyone have a list of all the current 10-and-5 guys?

    Everyone rags on Arroyo cause of last year.  Boo Hoo get over it he had a bad year.  So far in 4 starts here are his stats overall.

    Averaging 6 1/3 a start not awesome but not bad either.
    15 Strikeouts
    2 walks only!!!
    Avg. against is not bad at .265
    Whip is 1.09 that pretty darn good
    ERA 2.70

    Ok looking at these stats compared to the rest of the Reds starting staff excluding Cueto, Right now Arroyo is pitching like our #2 pitcher.   Is he a stud no way. but overall he is a pretty decent pitcher.  I have been saying all winter he would come back to his normals career stats or slightly better. 

    I’ll be happy if Arroyo can keep his ERA under 3.50 to me that would be a successful comeback for him.  That and a return to a winning record and around 12 wins or more.

    the guy does give innings–however look at the clubs his starts have been against they may have hitters in slumps
