Nationals Bronson Arroyo to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks
Washington Nationals starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo has been diagnosed with a partial tear in his rotator cuff tendons and will be sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks.
It's still better news than a complete tear which would require surgery and could end the veteran right-hander's career. Arroyo wasn't expected to crack the club's Opening Day rotation anyways, so he'll take his time coming back and could still serve as rotational depth upon his return.
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.
