Found February 03, 2014 on Redlegs Review:
Despite voicing frustration over not being signed yet, Bronson Arroyo is not lowering his contract demands, as the right-handed free agent still seeks a three-year contract.This is according to a report by Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. On Sunday, Cafardo wrote that the main hangup with Arroyo continues to hinge on the length of the contract. Arroyo seeks a third year or vesting option while Cafardo believes any straight two-year contract would get it done.What’s holding things up, according to a major league source, is the vesting option and/or third year he’s been asking for. It appears a straight two-year deal might be beneficial in getting it done. The Arizona Diamondbacks are the most recent team reportedly interested in signing the 37-year-old. Meanwhile, the Baltimore Orioles, Los Angeles Angels, Seattle Mariners, Minnesota Twins, and Los Angeles Dodgers have been linked to Arroyo as well.
