CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati Reds and Bronson Arroyo agreed to a three-year deal that replaces his 2011 club option and runs through the 2013 season.

According to the team's website, the total value of the deal is $35 million.

The Reds initially exercised Arroyo's $11 million option for 2011 before working out this new deal.

Arroyo has spent the last five seasons in Cincinnati after stints in Pittsburgh and Boston and helped the Reds win the NL Central last season. In 33 starts in 2010, he went 17-10 with a 3.88 earned run average.

The 33-year-old is 70-60 with a 3.97 ERA in 169 starts for the Reds and 103-93 with a 4.19 ERA in his career over 295 contests -- 259 starts. He was acquired by Cincinnati from Boston in exchange for outfielder Wily Mo Pena, who no longer plays in the major leagues.
