Has an ideal pitchers' frame. Is a good strike-thrower who can pitch to contact effectively. Also boasts strikeout ability. Can both start and relieve.
Flaws: : Can be a little too hittable at times. Needs to work on his stamina to be able to go deeper in ball games. Generally, he lacks consistency in the big leagues.
Arrieta has ended his solid 2014 season with two dominant starts. Over his last two starts covering 16 innings, he has allowed only three hits, two walks, and has struck out 23 batters. Target Arrieta in your drafts next season, and a potential trade could be looming next summer for Arrieta.Analyst: Colby Conway

Arrieta gave up six runs in his last outing against the Reds, but quickly moved back in the right direction Tuesday, dominating the struggling Brewers for six strong innings.
