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.
All players will be back with the Cubs next year with a pay raise. One player of note is Jake Arrieta, who posted the best season of his career in 2014 and will be arbitration eligible for the first time in his career.Analyst: David Kerr
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
An absolutely phenomenal start for Arrieta on Tuesday night. He was on point the entire game and allowed just one hit and one walk. The Reds had zero chance against Arrieta, who struck out the side in the first inning and never looked back. His next start will come against the Dodgers on Sunday.Analyst: David Kerr
This was a good start by Arrieta. He faced a potent Blue Jays offense and held his own, but was unable to pick up the victory. He will make his next start on Monday against the Reds.Analyst: David Kerr
