|Jake Arrieta Ks eight in losing effort |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/20/14) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta turned in another quality start but was pegged with the loss Sunday against the Diamondbacks in Arizona, dropping to 5-2 on the year. The right-hander permitted three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out eight over 6 2/3 innings of a 3-2 defeat.
Over his last nine starts covering 59 2/3 innings, Arrieta has allowed only 11 earned runs. He owns a 2.12 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP over 14 starts (85 innings). He will make his next start Saturday at home against St. Louis.
|Cubs still being cautious with Jake Arrieta |

(7/18/14) The Cubs are still being cautious with pitcher Jake Arrieta, according to MLB.com.
Cubs manager Rick Renteria said the team gave Arrieta the third start following the All-Star break in order to give him some extra rest. Arrieta got a late start to the season due to shoulder woes, and the team is likely just being cautious with him.
Over 78 1/3 innings, Arrieta has posted a 1.95 ERA.

|Jake Arrieta tossed quality start against Braves |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/11/14) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta picked up a quality start Friday against the Braves.
Arrieta gave up three runs on four hits over 7 2/3 innings. Arrieta allowed three walks and struck out six during the outing. Arrieta first ran into trouble in the fourth inning. After putting the first two men on board to open the frame, Arrieta induced two groundouts, which allowed both runs to score.
Arrieta also gave up an additional run in the sixth inning, when Freeman doubled in a run. Arrieta was set to win the game, but Hector Rondon wound up blowing the save. Arrieta’s next start will come some time after the All-Star break.
|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.
|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.
