The Cincinnati Reds placed starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right shoulder Monday. The move could mean the end of the 40-year-old veteran’s 16-year career.
Arroyo allowed five earned runs in three innings Sunday in an 8-7 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. After the game, he admitted he may not pitch again.
“That could have been my last time on the field,” Arroyo said. “That’s just the way it is.”
The Reds also put shortstop Zack Cozart, who leads National League shortstops in voting for the All-Star Game, on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right quad muscle retroactive to Sunday.
The Reds recalled two players from Louisville: outfielder Jesse Winker, who made his big-league debut in April and appeared in two games; and pitcher Ariel Hernandez, who also debuted in April and appeared in one game.
