ST. petersburg, Fla. – The Cincinnati Reds placed 40-year-old righthander Bronson Arroyo on the 10-day disabled list because of a strained right shoulder, one day after Arroyo said there is a possibility his career might be over.
Cincinnati also put shortstop Zack Cozart on the 10-day DL Monday because of a strained right quadriceps.
Arroyo gave up five runs and seven hits in just three innings Sunday as the Reds lost 8-7 to the Dodgers.
Arroyo is attempting a comeback this season with his former team after missing two seasons because of arm and shoulder problems, including Tommy John surgery and a procedure on his shoulder. He said after Sunday's outing, "Have I thought, 'This time might be my last time on the field?' Yeah."
Said Reds manager Bryan Price: "Now, it's just a matter of seeing where this goes, to define the source of the pain, and really kind of figure out what's in his best interest. We haven't even really got to the point to really talking about what the future holds for Bronson. We just realized that he does need to go on the DL."
Cozart, hitting .320 with nine homers and 33 RBI in 58 games, aggravated the injury while running to first base Sunday.
