SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks have made the signing of right-hander Bronson Arroyo official, five days after the two-year, $23.5 million deal was widely reported.
Arroyo had to travel to Arizona and pass a physical before the signing could be announced by the club.
The physical was basically a formality for arguably the most durable pitcher in the majors. He has never been on the disabled list in his 14 big league seasons.
Arroyo, who turns 37 in 12 days, was 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA last season, the final of his eight years with the Cincinnati Reds.
His new contract pays him $9.5 million each of the next two seasons. The deal has a club option for 2016 with a $4.5 million buyout.
Arroyo's arrival coincided with the Diamondbacks' first full-squad workout of the spring.
