There was a sense throughout the industry that the Orioles' decision to back away from closer Grant Balfour after his failed physical in December could adversely affect the club going forward. That reality apparently played a part in them not landing veteran starter Bronson Arroyo, who signed a two-year deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. Arroyo will get a guaranteed $23.5 million over two years -- $9.5 million each season and an $11 million option in 2016 that includes a $4.5 million buyout.

Before anyone goes off on how the Orioles came up short on another veteran free-agent pitcher, that reported $16 million guarantee that A.J. Burnett got from the Philadelphia Phillies apparently is for just one year. So, don't bother taking the Orioles to task, because that's a ridiculous price for a guy who wasn't even sure he wanted to pitch this year and didn't have a winning record in 2013. Sure, he actually had a good year in spite of that 10-11 record (3.30 ERA, 209 strikeouts)

The Orioles' search for a starting pitcher to upgrade their rotation took a major hit Friday when right-hander Bronson Arroyo -- one of the club's top offseason targets -- chose the Arizona Diamondbacks over the Orioles. The two sides agreed to a two-year deal that will pay the veteran starter a guaranteed $23.5 million and could be worth $30 million if Arizona picks up a club option for 2016. Personally, I believed that Arroyo was the best available fit for the Orioles. Even though he turns 37 years old this month, his track record of durability -- he has pitched at least 199 innings in each of the last nine seasons -- is exactly what the Orioles need, an experienced frontline starter who can go deep into games every fifth day. I was told Friday that the Orioles' final offer was a competitive one and that, ultimately, Arroyo decided he wanted to remain in the National League, where he has pitched the past eight seasons with the Cincinnati Reds and 11 of his 14 seasons overall.

The Orioles are in continuing negotiations with free-agent right-hander Bronson Arroyo, according to an industry source. They are not the only serious suitor, however, as the sweepstakes for Arroyo appears to be nearing a close. The 36-year-old, who was 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA in 32 starts with the Cincinnati Reds last year, is one of several high-profile starters still available on the market. It was believed that Arroyo, who turns 37 later this month, was seeking a three-year deal, but he seems to have softened that stance.

The Orioles were in the race for free-agent starter Bronson Arroyo, one of their top offseason targets, until the very end, but ultimately saw the right-hander agree to a two-year deal worth a guaranteed $23.5 million with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.  Arroyo will make $9.5 million in each of the next two seasons, and Arizona has an $11 million club option for 2016 or can buy him out for $4.5 million, ESPN reported. Arroyo selected the Diamondbacks over the Orioles, according to an industry source who added that the Orioles' final offer was “competitive.” Ultimately, Arroyo wanted to stay in the National League, the source said.

The Orioles' frustrating offseason got a little more frustrating Friday when the front office came up short in its pursuit of veteran pitcher Bronson Arroyo, who seemed to be the best fit of the remaining pitchers available in the free-agent market. Maybe pursuit isn't the right word, since the Orioles still seem to be playing hard to get just a few days before before pitchers and catchers report to spring training. Executive vice president Dan Duquette continues to insist that he wants to solidify the starting rotation, but it's fair to wonder at this point just how much the team really wants to win this year.

New York -- Ken Griffey's 548th homer tied him with Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt for 11th place, and Bronson Arroyo (9-3) pitched a complete game to lead Cincinnati to its eighth straight victory on the road. Brandon Phillips added a two-run double and Arroyo threw a seven-hitter for the Reds, who had lost eight of nine to end their worst 10-game homestand (2-8) since 1950.

PHILADELPHIA — When Roy Halladay came off the field after his historic performance in the opening game of the Reds-Phillies National League Division Series, his teammates closed the clubhouse door behind him, then stood and applauded. But the cheering lasted just a few seconds before Halladay cut it off. "All he said was let's win two more," Phillies reliever Ryan Madson said. That's because as brilliant as Halladay was in becoming just the second pitcher to throw a postseason no-hitter, it won't mean anything if the Phillies don't win two of the possibly next four games with the Reds.

The Orioles are continuing their pursuit of a starting pitcher and have been in recent contact with some of the top names left on the board, including Ervin Santana, Bronson Arroyo and Ubaldo Jimenez. One source referred to the talks as “a continuing dialogue,” but it's unclear whether the club is headed toward any immediate resolution. “We're still talking to a couple of pitchers,” Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Friday night, though he declined to specify which.

The Orioles have money to spend - perhaps as much as $17 million for this upcoming season - and are still looking to do so, according to the club's top executive. Japanese right-hander Masahiro Tanaka signed a seven-year, $155 million deal with the New York Yankees on Wednesday as the free-agent market appeared to open for a second act. The ongoing negotiations with Tanaka - which did not include the Orioles, who never agreed to pay the $20 million posting fee to talk with him - seemingly had held free agency hostage after a flurry of activity in early December.

Some think the Reds just took the biggest risk in franchise history. I think they made the shrewdest acquisition of the offseason. Cuban lefty Aroldis Chapman , signed away from the Blue Jays, Red Sox, Angels and other suitors at a cost of $30 million, is a difference-maker, and there were darn few of those available on the 2010 free agent market. Give general manager Walt Jocketty and the team's owner, Bob Castellini , tremendous credit for investing so heavily in a guy who would have been ranked 1A to Stephen Strasburg if he had stood alongside North American talent in last year's draft.
