Latest Update Arrieta struggles as Cubs lose to Reds Thu Aug, 28, 10:03 PM
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.
Hey, everyone has an occasional poor start and Arrieta's time came today. He's been very good this season, but struggled on Thursday against Cincinnati. He will make his next start at home against the Brewers on Tuesday.Analyst: David Kerr
After giving up five runs on thirteen hits on August 6th, Arrieta has pitched brilliantly in his last three starts, allowing just three runs over his last 21.1 innings. Fantasy owners can continue to expect more of the same from Arrieta in his breakout season, as his 2.82 xFIP suggests that he will continue to pitch well. Arrieta isn't going to be racking up the wins like some other starters, but he'll provide good K's to go along with a great ERA and WHIP. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Arrieta has never thrown more than 120 innings in a season, but if he maintains his current throwing schedule, he'll likely only pitch 160-170 innings this year which is a perfectly acceptable increase in innings. Continue to roll with him during this breakout season and make sure you start him this week when he faces his old team, the Orioles.Analyst: Howard Bender
Arrieta had another strong performance and has now allowed just two runs in the 14.1 innings since that nightmarish start against the Rockies in Colorado. That aberration should be a distant memory already for you as it simply wasn't representative of his talent and the way he's pitched all year long. In fact, he's got 12 quality starts in his last 13 outings and has posted an outstanding 2.61 ERA with a 122:31 K:BB over 117.1 innings this season. Continue to view him as a high-quality starter and keep him active for his next start which comes against his former team, the Orioles.Analyst: Howard Bender
