Bronson Arroyo confirms that he has a “significantly torn” rotator cuff


Washington Nationals pitcher Bronson Arroyo was reported yesterday to have a torn labrum. Today he confirmed a shoulder injury but says it is a “significantly torn” right rotator cuff. The difference of which I’m sure is important to Arroyo and his doctors but for our purposes both may as well be career-ending.

He says he’s not ready to call it a career just yet, but it’s hard to see a 39-year old dude who hasn’t pitched since 2014 coming back off yet another major surgery. A shoulder surgery no less.
