|Jake Arrieta able to throw off mound Tuesday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/5/14) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta was able to throw off a mound Tuesday, according to MLB.com.
Arrieta has been dealing with shoulder tightness this spring, and has been brought around slowly. He was able to throw 10 pitches off a mound for the first time this spring. Arrieta said it felt "awesome" to throw again.
Arrieta posted a 4.78 ERA in 75 1/3 innings last season.

(2/21/14) The ailing shoulder of Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta is feeling strong enough for him to declare his readiness to return to the mound as early as next week, the Chicago Tribune has reported. He has yet to throw off the mound in spring training.
Arrieta, however, added that his shoulder must be fine after a throwing session Saturday for him to be comfortable going forward.

(2/16/14) Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta, who has been slowed to start spring training because of tightness in his right shoulder, has been able to play catch and take part in the team's pitcher drills. However, he has yet to throw off a mound, manager Rick Renteria said Sunday.

(2/13/14) Veteran right-hander Jake Arrieta has been deemed a sure starter for the Cubs this season, but he will be starting late in spring training. Shoulder tightness experienced this winter has pushed back his timetable to begin his preparation for the regular season, per ESPN. He is not expected to be ready for opening day.
Arrieta performed well upon his trade to the Cubs on July 30. He won four of six decisions and yielded 21 earned runs and just 34 hits in 51 2/3 innings.
|Jake Arrieta heading for a rotation spot in 2014 |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/25/13) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta is "entrenched" in the team's 2014 starting rotation, ESPN Chicago reports.
"I’ll be the first to tell you there’s competition in every spring training you are a part of, regardless of the organization," Arrieta told ESPN. "Spot or no spot, I intend on attacking the offseason the same way."
Acquired by the Cubs in early July, Arrieta is 3-2 with a 3.94 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 36:22 K:BB ratio in 45 2/3 innings over eight starts with his current team.
|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.
