Bronson Arroyo admits comeback could be over | MLB.com

“I think my arm is probably going to be checkmate,” Arroyo said. “I’ve got some tears in my shoulder that we’ve been masking with cortisone for a while. It held up for the first three months. I got another shot, the second has disappeared after like three weeks.”
...
“The elbow—Tommy John [surgery] is like a chain out on a bicycle. It doesn’t matter how bad the chain is, if the rest of the bike is OK, you change out the chain and you continue to move forward,” Arroyo said. “But a shoulder is more like your favorite shirt you’ve been wearing for the last 15 years and it’s been washed too many times. So it gets brittle, right?

“Right now, it’s not going to work anymore. I don’t know if we have any more options. We’ll see.”
