Nats join Reds in reportedly considering Arroyo

Free-agent right-hander Bronson Arroyo is reportedly drawing interest from both the Nationals and Reds. The 38-year-old is seeking a new club after missing all of last season recovering from Tommy John surgery.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported via Twitter on Sunday that the Nationals are considering adding Arroyo, a move that would reunite him with his former Reds manager Dusty Baker. MLB.com's Mark Sheldon previously reported the Reds' interest in bringing back Arroyo, who pitched for Cincinnati from 2006-13.

Arroyo last pitched in 2014 for the D-backs, going 7-4 with a 4.08 ERA in 14 starts before his torn ulnar collateral ligament ended his season early. Arroyo, an All-Star in 2006, has a 145-131 career record and an ERA of 4.19 through 405 big league games.
