Jake Arrieta and Cubs close to agreeing on a one-year deal

Veteran starting pitcher Jake Arrieta is close to agreeing to a one-year deal with his former team the Chicago Cubs. From 2018-2020, Arrieta started for the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

Since his time with the Cubs, Jake Arrieta experienced a downward trend in production. In his last season with the Cubs (2017), Arrieta finished with a 3.53 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, a 23.1% K%, and 7.8% BB% in 168.1 innings. Since then his ERA spiked to 3.96 in 2018, 4.64 in 2019, and 5.08 in 2020. Unless he adjusts his pitch mix to lower the sinker usage, it's hard to rely on him as anything more than a deep league streamer.

Jake Arrieta (hamstring) plays catch on Sunday

Jake Arrieta, who was placed on the IL on September 16th with a Grade 1 hamstring strain, played catch in the outfield on Sunday. He appeared to be pushing off his right leg to test his hamstring, per beat writer Meghan Montemurro.

Fantasy Impact

Arrieta will be eligible to come off the IL this coming weekend but manager Joe Giardi already stated that he would miss the rest of the regular season. It appears the right-hander is just working his way back in hopes of being ready if the Phillies make the playoffs. As of now Philadelphia it holding on to the seventh seed in the NL.

Jake Arrieta was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain.

Fantasy Impact

Arrieta sustained the injury during Tuesday's win over the Mets but it was initially thought to be more of a day-to-day situation. It was serious enough to stash him on the 10-day IL but the hope is that he can make it back before the end of the regular season.
