The Phillies placed starter Jake Arrieta on the injured list on Wednesday, and he will undergo tests on Thursday to determine whether or not he will have season-ending surgery on his ailing elbow, according to reports. (Scott Lauber on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Arrieta has been pitching through bone spurs in his elbow for this last several starts, and the issue has apparently gotten progressively worse. While the tests will provide more information and the official word, Arrieta is expecting to have surgery and be shut down for the rest of the season.
