Jake Arrieta was excellent Friday against the Marlins, allowing just three hits over seven scoreless frames as part of a 2-0 victory.
It was his first scoreless start since May 29. Arrieta walked three and fanned three while inducing 11 grounders. He’s now gone seven innings in back-to-back outings, earning victories in both of them. Arrieta has only fanned 72 batters in 103 innings this season, but he’ll still carry a 3.23 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over 18 starts going into the All-Star break. The Phillies and fantasy owners can’t complain about that. Jul 13 - 10:08 PM

Jake Arrieta allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

A nice, crisp start for Arrieta, who struck out eight and walked one over his seven innings of work. Colin Moran opened the scoring against him with an RBI single in the first inning and Starling Marte knocked him for a solo home run in the third inning, but otherwise he kept the scoreboard clean on the afternoon. Arrieta will carry a 3.47 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 69/30 K/BB ratio (96 innings) into a road date with the Marlins when he next toes the rubber. He's no longer striking out batters at a particularly impressive rate, but remains a serviceable starter even despite his diminished fantasy value.
Jul 7 - 7:06 PM

Jake Arrieta allowed three runs - two earned - over five innings in a no decision against the Nationals on Sunday.

Arrieta walked two and struck out two. He was once again let down by his defense, as another unearned run came across to score against him. It’s a rather pedestrian start from the veteran right-hander; one that didn’t see him miss many bats, but he didn’t get much help from the defense (again) on Sunday. His season ERA now sits at 3.54, and he’s struck out just 61 hitters in 89 innings. Arrieta starts again on Saturday in a contest with the Pirates.
Jul 1 - 6:14 PM

Jake Arrieta completed an awful June with a clunker versus the Yankees on Tuesday, getting charged with six runs – three earned – over five frames.

A Cesar Hernandez throwing error in the third inning led to three Yankees runs. Arrieta can’t blame this all on his defense, though, as he was battered for nine hits – including a pair of home runs – and a walk while needing 81 pitches to cover his five innings. The veteran right-hander finishes June with a 6.66 ERA over five starts and he has just 59 strikeouts across 84 frames this season. He’s given up a league-high 14 unearned runs already. Arrieta will try to bounce back Sunday against a struggling Nationals offense.
Jun 26 - 10:41 PM

Jake Arrieta allowed three earned runs over six innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Cardinals.

Philly wound up winning this one 4-3 courtesy of a go-ahead home run by Odubel Herrera in the bottom of the seventh inning. Arrieta fared well against every Cardinals hitter other than Yadier Molina, who hit a solo homer in the top of the second and a two-run shot in the top of the sixth. The 32-year-old right-hander has a 3.42 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 54/26 K/BB ratio in 79 innings this season, though he's been a little shakier lately. He'll face the Yankees next in what figures to be a tough test.
Jun 20 - 4:19 PM

Jake Arrieta lasted just 3 1/3 innings while allowing eight runs (four earned) in a loss against the Brewers on Friday.

Arrieta wasn’t at his best, but neither was the Phillies’ defense, as they committed three errors behind him and four errors overall on the night. Scott Kingery made two of them, including a critical one in a five-run second inning. All told, Arrieta allowed seven hits (including a two-run homer to Christian Yelich) while walking two batters and striking out one. He’s yielded 13 runs over his last three starts, boosting his ERA from 2.16 to 3.33 in the process. He’ll try to reverse that trend in a start against the Cardinals next week.
Jun 16 - 12:35 AM

Jake Arrieta wasn't at his best in Saturday's loss to the Brewers, allowing four runs on four hits over his 5 1/3 innings.

Arrieta also issued three walks on the day while striking out four. He served up a two-run homer to Jesus Aguilar in the first inning, then left a pair of runners on base when he departed in the sixth, both of which came around to score. Now 5-4 on the season, he'll carry a 2.97 ERA and 1.18 WHIP into a rematch against these same Brewers in Milwaukee on Friday.
Jun 9 - 4:38 PM

Jake Arrieta allowed five earned runs, eight hits and no walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a loss Sunday in San Francisco.

Arrieta was humming along until getting dinged for five runs in the decisive sixth inning. He had actually staked himself to a 1-0 lead with a solo home run in the third inning, but he gave up five of the eight hits he allowed to turn a great afternoon into a loss. He'll look to rebound at home Saturday against Brent Suter and the Brewers.
Jun 3 - 8:23 PM

Jake Arrieta scattered six hits with two walks and five strikeouts across seven scoreless innings in a victory Tuesday on the road against the Dodgers.

Arrieta threw 62 of his 103 pitches in the outing, yielding just six singles while uncorking one wild pitch. He has been ace-like in the month of May, posting a 2-1 record with a 0.90 ERA and 20 strikeouts over 30 innings in five outings. He'll look to keep up the good work into June, working next Sunday in San Francisco opposite Andrew Suarez.
May 30 - 4:11 AM

Jake Arrieta scattered seven hits over 6 2/3 scoreless innings while allowing one walk with seven strikeouts in a win Wednesday against the visiting Braves.

Arrieta looked ace-like against the Braves, as the Phillies scratched back within a half-game of first place Atlanta in the National League East. It was his first victory since April 25, but it isn't due to a stretch of poor pitching. Wednesday's outing marked his third consecutive quality start. He has now allowed just two homers over his 51 1/3 innings this season. He'll try to carry over the momentum into next Tuesday's road outing against the Dodgers to kick off a two-start week.
May 23 - 11:16 PM

Jake Arrieta yielded four runs -- two earned -- in three innings Friday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Arrieta has been very good in five of his eight starts this year and still has a 2.82 ERA, but where did the strikeouts go? He's totaled just 13 in his last five starts. He did fan 10 against the Pirates on April 19, but that's the only time all year that he's struck out more than five. He's going to have to do a little better than that to keep his ERA down.
May 19 - 1:35 AM

Jake Arrieta was handed another no-decision despite throwing 7 1/3 scoreless innings against the Mets on Friday.

He was in position for the win before Hector Neris blew the save in the ninth. Arrieta was in control against the scuffling Mets, scattering five hits while walking a pair and striking out five. He’s still not striking out batters at the same rate we’ve seen in the past, but it was an improvement after he struck out two batters in three straight starts coming in. Arrieta now has a 2.59 ERA and 1.06 WHIP through his first seven starts with Philadelphia. He gets the Cardinals on the road next.
May 11 - 10:10 PM

Jake Arrieta pitched six innings of one-run baseball in a no decision against the Nationals on Sunday.

Arrieta allowed just two hits, and he walked two while striking out two. It's a nice bounce back from his awful start on Monday against the Marlins where he couldn't get out of the fourth inning. If there's a concern here, it's that the former Cubs ace isn't missing many bats, as he's had just six strikeouts in his last three starts. The ERA sits at a very respectable 3.15, however, and he'll try to miss more bats while having similar results against the Mets on Friday.
May 6 - 5:28 PM

Jake Arrieta surrendered six earned runs over 3 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Marlins.

Arrieta issued two walks and gave up eight hits in the ugly 79-pitch outing at Marlins Park in Miami. His season ERA jumped from 1.82 to 3.49. The veteran right-hander will try to get back on track Sunday against the Nationals.
Apr 30 - 10:59 PM

Jake Arrietta allowed three runs -- one earned -- in seven innings and collected a win against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

The Phillies made three errors behind him but Arrieta stayed poised and held it together like a veteran should. He scattered four hits and two walks while notching just two strikeouts. He walked in one run and allowed two more on a pair of sacrifice flies. He moves to 3-0 with a stellar 1.82 ERA in his first season with his new club.
