|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) The Cubs and starter Jake Arrieta have avoided arbitration with a one-year, $3.63 million contract, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman on Friday. He made $500,000 last season.
Arrieta went 10-5 with a career-best 2.53 ERA through 25 starts in 2014. He registered a 0.989 WHIP and 167:41 K:BB ratio over 156 2/3 innings of work. He has a career 4.48 ERA through five seasons in the majors.
Jake Arrieta turns in fantastic start Wednesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/24/14) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta turned in a fantastic start Wednesday against the Cardinals.
Arrieta allowed one unearned run on two hits over seven innings. He struck out 10 and walked one during the outing. Arrieta’s only run came on an error. With runners at first and third, the Cardinals attempted to steal second. Welington Castillo made a throwing error on the play, allowing Yadier Molina to score from third. Arrieta would get the next two batters out, so the run would not have scored if not for the error.
With the win, Arrieta improved to 10-5.

Pumping the brakes on the 2015 Cubs lovefest
The Cubs are getting a lot of preseason love. Some are even predicting a World Series championship in 2015. Let's settle down a bit, at least for this season.
2015 Draft Prep: Breakouts 1.0
Sleepers or breakouts? Semantics aside, Nolan Arenado and Evan Gattis are among those who fit Scott White's breakouts definition for 2015.
|2014 summary: Jake Arrieta's season started a month late as he recovered from a shoulder injury, which inconvenienced the small circle of NL-only owners who drafted him. Mixed league owners had little idea how much demand they would generate for Arrieta's services, but by midseason he would be owned in more than 90 percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com. Arrieta's addition of a slider/cutter enabled him to dramatically increase his strikeout and ground ball rates, and he completed his breakout season with a 10-5 record, 2.53 ERA and 0.99 WHIP.|
Playing time status: Arrieta will occupy a spot at or near the top of the Cubs' rotation and, barring injury, should provide at least 190 innings.
2015 outlook: For the last four months of the 2014 season, Arrieta was among the most dominant starters in Fantasy, and he allowed two runs or fewer in 15 of his final 19 starts. He may not maintain quite that level of consistency, but Arrieta won't need to in order to be a top 20 starting pitcher in 2015. He now possesses the ability to get strikeouts, pitch with control and induce grounders to place him among that exclusive group.
