Diamondbacks, Braves announce three-player deal on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/20/15) The Diamondbacks announced that they have dealt right-hander Bronson Arroyo and Touki Toussaint (their No. 5 prospect) to the Braves in a three-player deal on Saturday. In exchange, the Braves will be sending infielder Phil Gosselin to the Diamondbacks.
Arroyo made 14 starts for Arizona in 2014 before undergoing Tommy John surgery. He has yet to pitch this year, and is not expected back until at least August. The Braves will take on the entirety of Arroyo's contract, which includes $9.5 million for this year, and a $4.5 million buyout on a $13 million option for 2016, per FoxSports.com.
Toussaint was a first-round draft pick (16th overall) by the Diamondbacks in 2014. The right-hander has been pitching with Class A Kane County this year, posting a 3.69 ERA through seven starts.
Meanwhile, Gosselin underwent surgery to repare a fractured thumb in May. He is currently on the disabled list and holds a .325 batting average in 40 at-bats this year.
The Diamondbacks seem satisfied with the current state of their pitching corps, allowing them to deal away Toussaint in the deal.
"We are getting some good pitching from our young rotation and that's the direction we are going to go," D-Backs general manager Dave Stewart said.
Diamondbacks' Bronson Arroyo completes 'pen session Tuesday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(6/2/15) Diamondbacks pitcher Bronson Arroyo threw his second bullpen session in the past five days prior to Tuesday's game against the Braves at Chase Field, per MLB.com. His next step in his rehab will depend on how his surgically-repaired elbow feels a day after his mound work.
"It's can you throw and come back the next day and feel like you haven't thrown, not be sore, not be tender?" Arroyo said. "It's just going to be a gradual progress of trying to build that endurance up in the elbow."
Diamondbacks pitcher Bronson Arroyo still dealing with pain in elbow
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Diamondbacks pitcher Bronson Arroyo is still feeling a noticeable pain in his right elbow on the road to recovery from Tommy John surgery, according to MLB.com.
Arroyo underwent the procedure last July and is hopeful to return during the second half of the season at some point. Arizona has a $4.5 million buyout on Arroyo's contract at the end of the season, which is motivating his speedy recovery from the surgery.
"That's why I'd like to get back and maybe make 10 starts the second half of the season to show what I can do," Arroyo said. "That way they have some basis for making a decision."
Diamondbacks clear their 60-day disabled list
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(10/30/14) The Diamondbacks have moved four players off the 60-day disabled list, according to the Arizona Republic.
Bronson Arroyo, Patrick Corbin, David Hernandez and Matt Reynolds were activated Thursday. Players are not allowed to be on the 60-day disabled list during the offseason. They can be put back on the 60-day DL once the season begins again.
|2014 summary: A back injury hindered Bronson Arroyo's preparation in spring training, and it showed up in the form of a 9.50 ERA through his first four starts. Arroyo was in vintage form from that point forward, going 6-2 with a 2.65 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP over his next 10 starts. The uber-durable Arroyo is one of the last pitchers one would expect to need Tommy John surgery, but his first campaign with the Diamondbacks was cut short when he underwent the procedure in July.|
Playing time status: Arroyo could be back after the All-Star break, but that would be the earliest he could likely return from surgery.
2015 outlook: Because he will miss most of the season, Arroyo can be passed over in virtually all drafts, but he will be worth picking up off waivers in deeper leagues once his return is imminent.
