Arroyo called on the carpet

Bronson overshared a bit yesterday, and baseball now wants to “chat” with him a bit:

Major League Baseball plans to schedule a meeting with Cincinnati Reds right-hander Bronson Arroyo, vice president Rich Levin said Thursday,
to discuss his comments to USA TODAY about taking supplements not
approved by MLB.

“We just want to chat with him,” Levin said, “just to make him aware of the (MLB-licensed) supplements out there.”

I’d also guess that the “chat” will involve something about this comment: “[supplements] might be dangerous, but so is drinking and driving. And
how many of us do it at least once a year? Pretty much everybody.”

Which, personally, I found much more troubling than anything he said about PEDs.

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that the Angels have hired former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus as a special assistant to GM Billy Eppler.

Ausmus, 48, managed the Tigers for four seasons, accruing a 314-332 (.486) record. The Tigers fired him after the 2017 season and hired former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire in his place.

Ausmus will assist with scouting and evaluations of players in the Angels’ system, amateurs, and players in other organizations.
