Dbacks add Arroyo

Posted: Updated:

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks and Bronson Arroyo have agreed on a two-year contract with a club option for a third.

The right-hander, who turns 37 in two weeks, has a 138-127 record with a 4.91 ERA. He pitched the last eight seasons with the Cincinnati Reds before becoming a free agent.

Last year, Arroyo was 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA.

The Diamondbacks had been searching for another veteran starter for their rotation and had been in contact over the past few days.

Team President Derrick Hall confirmed the contract agreement Friday afternoon.
