Free-agent starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo says he’d consider signing with the Mets, but so far they have not contacted him…
4:20 pm: Arroyo said he’s interested in anyone that is interested in him, but so far the Mets have not reached out to him (WFAN).
Ideally, he’d like to go to a place that has a chance to get to the post season, and guaranteed years are more important to him than the money.
“I’m open to everybody, and I think New York is great,” Arroyo said. “I’ve been an East Coast guy my whole life.”
Nov. 18: The Mets are not among the six teams (Phillies, Dodgers, Angels, Giants, Twins and Orioles) that have contacted Arroyo (MLB Network Radio).
Nov. 1: Arroyo said he would definitely consider signing with the Mets (Martin).
Oct. 8: Arroyo is seeking at least a two-year deal (Sheldon).
Arroyo, 36, went 13-12 with a 3.79 ERA in 32 starts with 32 walks and 124 strikeouts while allowing a league-high 32 home runs in 202 innings with the Reds in 2013.
