Disappointment has been a word of choice when it comes to describing Bronson Arroyo's 3-10 season. Even the announcer at the Cincinnati Reds' 3-2 road loss Thursday vs. the Mets used it.
According to Hal McCoy, staff writer for the Dayton Daily News, here's how the announcer introduced Arroyo:
"Pitching for the Reds, one of the most disappointing pitchers in the National League this year, Bronson Arroyo."
The 30-year-old has watched his ERA climb to 4.78, which ranked him 30th in the National League before Tuesday's outing against Atlanta. In 118.2 innings, he has struck out 78, but has given up 135 hits, sixth highest among National League pitchers.
