MLB: Two Reds pitchers clear waivers

By Craig Filazzola, WSOE Sports Director

The Cincinnati Reds now have the ability to trade Aaron Harang and Bronson Arroyo after the players cleared waivers, SI.com reports.

Teams that need a starting pitcher can acquire Harang or Arroyo and probably won’t pay their full salaries. Harang is owed $18.5 million through next year, and Arroyo has $16.5 million left on his contract that also expires after next season. The Yankees have been mentioned as a possible suitor for either starter.

Even though these veteran pitchers could help a contending team make the playoffs, they would need to turn their seasons around. This year Harang is 6-13 with a 4.43 ERA, and Arroyo is 10-11 with a 5.04 ERA.
