Jake Arrieta wild in loss to Dodgers


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2013) After struggling his last time out, Cubs starter Jake Arrieta was out to prove he has finally turned a corner on his career. He set out to do just that Monday night in his start at the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Unfortunately, it was another shaky outing for the 27-year-old. Arrieta walked five batters and threw 111 pitches over just five innings as he took the loss to fall to 1-1 for the Cubs and 2-3 overall on the year. Arrieta allowed four runs on six hits with three strikeouts. His ERA with Chicago rose to 4.50 from 3.71 on the outing.

Arrieta has given up 10 earned runs over his last two starts spanning nine innings. After walking five batters in his first two gems for Chicago, Arrieta, like he'd done many times with Baltimore, has become even more wild walking nine in his last two.

The Cubs are hoping they found a gem in getting Arrieta and Pedro Strop from the Orioles for Scott Feldman. He's been his same Jekyll-and-Hyde self thus far. The starter makes his next appearance Sunday against Philadelphia.

Jake Arietta struggles in no-decision

Arrieta has a 3.71 ERA in 17 innings over three starts since joining the Cubs. He will make his next start Monday against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. 


Has Jake Arrieta found the cure?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/19/2013) With a fastball that hits 96 and a slider that hits 90, Jake Arrieta has always had good stuff. It's how he was able to strike out nearly a batter per inning last year and why the Orioles were willing to give him so many chances over the last four.

So far, his chances with the Cubs have gone better. The last one -- a two-hit, no-run, seven-strikeout effort against the mighty Cardinals Friday -- was especially notable.

"That's what I'm capable of," Arrieta said afterward. "It's just a matter commanding the ball and limiting my walks. That's really what's gotten me in the past was too many free passes, letting guys get away when I'm in favorable counts and pretty much keeping my foot on the gas and staying on the attack. I've made a conscious effort to get better at certain things and it's starting to show."

Poor command will ruin good stuff time and time again, so I buy what Arrieta is saying enough to move him into my top 100 at starting pitcher, but considering he issued 10 walks over 14 2/3 innings in his final three starts at Triple-A, I'm not sure he's entirely "fixed." Let's wait and see a bit more before rushing out to claim him in Fantasy.
