Doctor misread the MRI of Washington's Bronson Arroyo
Washington Nationals pitcher Bronson Arroyo does not have a torn rotator cuff as the doctor misread his MRI, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.
The veteran right-hander's rotator cuff is believed to be fine, and he's merely dealing with inflammation in his bursa sac. Rather than sidelining him for the entire season, he'll be sidelined for the next seven to 10 days before being re-evaluated. He isn't out of the woods yet, but this is certainly very encouraging news as it appeared Arroyo was headed for retirement.
Arroyo owns a career 4.37 xFIP. Over a full season, he has posted a sub-4.00 xFIP just once in his career (2013). Eating innings and limiting walks is just about all Arroyo offers.
