|Late homer only blemish as Jake Arrieta ends winless streak |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/22/14) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta dominated his former team Friday, in a 4-1 win over the Orioles.
Arrieta allowed just one run in seven innings of work, on a seventh inning solo home run by Nelson Cruz. That late blemish aside, the Orioles could hardly touch Arrieta, who allowed just four hits and a walk over his seven innings, while striking out five batters on 99 pitches in the win.
Arrieta brought a three-start winless streak to an end Friday, despite having allowed just two runs in his previous two outings. He has a 7-4 record and 2.53 ERA in 124 1/3 innings this season, heading into his start against the Reds Thursday.
|Cubs have no plans to shut down Jake Arrieta |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/18/14) Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta has logged 117 1/3 innings through 19 starts, which puts him two innings shy of matching his career-high at the major-league level. Though, Arrieta has surpassed 150 innings in the minors and combined to pass 170 innings in the majors and minors in 2010.
When asked if Arrieta was faced with an innings limit Monday, Cubs coach Rick Renteria was adamant about the team's ace finishing out the season.
"There’s no plan of shutting Jake down," Renteria said, per The Chicago Tribune. "We monitor everybody. I’ll be honest. I don’t know how that was construed as shutting him down.
"We’re not shutting down. We’re not looking to shut him down. We haven’t talked about shutting him down. I monitor everyone’s pitch counts. That’s just part of it."
|Jake Arrieta has no win to show for seven scoreless innings |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/17/14) Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta tossed two-hit baseball over seven scoreless innings Sunday against the Mets and pitched well enough for the victory. But the bullpen could not hold a one-run lead after Arrieta left, costing him a win.
Arrieta allowed a single to Lucas Duda leading off the second inning and a single to Ruben Tejada leading off the third. He also walked two batters and struck out nine, while lowering his ERA to 2.61.
Arrieta is winless in his last three starts (0-2), but he's allowed a total of two earned runs in his last two starts. He's slated to be back on the hill Friday against the Orioles.
|Cubs push back pitchers a day |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/14/14) The Cubs will call up Dan Straily for Saturday's start, pushing back their pitchers a day.
That means Jake Arrieta will move to Sunday, and Kyle Hendricks will throw Monday. It's just a spot start for Straily, so the team's rotation should return to normal following Saturday's game.
|Jake Arrieta takes loss in quality start vs. Brewers Monday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/11/14) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta was saddled with a loss Monday, giving up just two earned runs on five hits and one walk in 7 1/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Brewers.
Arrieta (6-4) was hammered to the tune of nine runs in his last start, but he got back on track Monday despite the loss. He allowed a second-inning solo home run before giving up the decisive run on a seventh-inning double. Arrieta has delivered quality starts in 11 of his last 12 turns, and he owns a 2.77 ERA and 113:29 K:BB ratio in 110 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mets Saturday.
|Dealt last July to the Cubs, a team whose best prospects aren't ready to contribute yet and whose best mainstays are seemingly on their way out the door, Jake Arrieta gets the second chance of a lifetime. The former top prospect has always had intriguing potential, but he had run out of chances in Baltimore, his ERA rising in each of the last three seasons as he was continually shuffled between the majors and minors. Given a steady rotation spot down the stretch for the Cubs, he was solid, compiling a 3.66 ERA and 1.12 WHIP with only one genuinely ugly start during that stretch. Of course, his strikeout-to-walk ratio wasn't nearly as good as it's been in the past, and ultimately, it's just nine starts. Arrieta had a 4.03 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in his first nine starts in 2011, and it was all downhill from there. At age 28, he may very well be a lost cause, but because the Cubs are willing to give him a chance and because it's gone well so far, he still deserves your attention in Fantasy, if only in NL-only leagues.
