Latest News
Jake Arrieta sharp in no-decision
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/6/14) Cubs starter Jake Arrieta allowed one run over six innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Nationals. Arrieta struck out five, walked three and scattered four hits. He's allowed five earned runs over his last seven starts.

Now boasting a 1.78 ERA, Arrieta will face the Braves at home Friday.

Jake Arrieta loses no-hit bid in eighth inning vs. Red Sox
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/30/14) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta picked up a win Monday, losing a no-hit bid with two outs in the eighth inning of his team's 2-0 victory over the Red Sox.

Arrieta (5-1) took a perfect game into the seventh inning of his last start, and he came closer to history Monday, giving up a single in the eighth before being removed with 120 pitches on his arm. He finished with one hit and one walk in 7 2/3 scoreless innings as well as 10 strikeouts. Arrieta owns a 1.81 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 74:16 K:BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings. He'll face the Nationals Sunday.

Jake Arrieta chases perfect game in win vs. Reds
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/25/14) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta took a perfect game into the seventh inning before giving up a hit in his team's 7-3 victory over the Reds.

Arrieta (4-1) wound up surrendering two earned runs in the top of the seventh inning after giving up a leadoff single to Billy Hamilton to spoil his bid at perfection. He struck out nine and walked none while tossing 94 pitches. Arrieta has surrendered just one earned run in 27 innings over his last four starts while striking out 36 batters and walking only two. His blazing-hot streak gives him a 2.05 ERA and 64:15 K:BB ratio in 57 innings. Arrieta will try to keep it going Monday in Boston.

Jake Arrieta too promising not to add
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/14) We've been down this road before with Jake Arrieta. As I pointed out on Thursday's Fantasy Baseball Today, 2012 in particular stands out as a year when every good start had us thinking breakout. He finished that year with a 6.20 ERA.

I remember the way the discussion went back then. One day, you'd be hyping him to no end, and the next, you'd be recanting it all. It was exhausting and dare I say unnecessary. Since then, I've been careful to avoid the all-in/all-out mentality. Fantasy Baseball wasn't meant to be played that way.

So this time around, I'll make my take as transparent as I possibly can: I don't know that I can trust Arrieta for as many times as he's burned me already, but I don't think it matters. His stuff is plainly evident. His pedigree points to greatness. His last three starts -- in which he's allowed one earned run on 10 hits with 27 strikeouts to two walks in 20 innings -- reveal how good he could be. I'm not passing up my chance at that just so I can say "I told you so" later.

Maybe Justin Masterson or Wily Peralta or Mark Buehrle or whatever pitcher I'd have to drop for Arrieta ends up performing better than him in the long run. But would they be so good that I'd regret giving them up for the chance at something great? Probably not in mixed leagues.

Jake Arrieta making case to be added off Fantasy waivers
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/19/14) Like many Fantasy owners, I was initially hesitant to buy into Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta. I wasn't sure if this was the signs of a breakout run or just a hot streak, but as I wrote earlier this week in the Waiver Wire column, there might be something brewing here.

The difference for Arrieta this season has been the success of his secondary pitchers. Right-handed batters are hitting just .188 against Arrieta's slider and .118 against his curveball, while lefties are batting just .160 against his slider and .125 against his changeup, per BrooksBaseball.net. Up through 2013, righties were batting .216 against the slider and .234 against the curve, and lefties were hitting .232 against the slider and .288 against the changeup.

Arrieta's improvement with his secondary pitches has led to more swings and misses. He has a career-high strikeout rate (9.9 K/9) and also has a career-best swinging strike rate (9.3 percent, per FanGraphs.com). 

As my good friend Al Melchoir pointed out on the podcast Thursday morning, Arrieta was a pretty good prospect in the minors, so maybe we shouldn't be so shocked by his success. He's been pretty good since joining Chicago last summer, going 7-3 with a 2.83 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 18 starts. Like many players before him, he might have just needed a change of scenery to kickstart his career.
