Jake Arrieta pitched six innings of three-run ball Thursday in a loss to the Rockies.
It was Arrieta's longest start in his last four outings, but it wasn't enough today to keep him from finishing the season with a losing record. Arrieta was 9-6 with a fine 3.32 ERA at the end of July, but he ends the year 10-11 with a 3.96 ERA. He'll get a full spring next year, instead of being a late signing, but with his strikeout rate dwindling, it seems like he's done as a top-notch starter. Sep 27 - 6:45 PM

Jake Arrieta had the shortest start of his big league career on Saturday, allowing four runs on four hits in only two innings of work in a loss to the Braves.

With the loss, the Phillies were officially eliminated from playoff contention in the National League. Arrieta got off to a rough start, walking each of the first two hitters on four pitches each, both of which came around to score. He'll carry a 3.94 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into his final start of the season on Thursday against the Rockies in Colorado.
Sep 22 - 3:52 PM

Jake Arrieta surrendered four earned runs over five innings Monday in a no-decision against the Mets.

New York wound up winning the game 9-4 as the Phillies continued their late-season tailspin. Arrieta has been a big part of that fade, as he now holds a 4.67 ERA in 61 2/3 innings (11 starts) since the All-Star break. He posted a 3.23 ERA across 103 innings (18 starts) in the first half. The veteran right-hander faces a tough road matchup against the Braves next time out.
Sep 17 - 10:27 PM

Jake Arrieta fanned seven but gave up three runs over five innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Nationals.

Youngster Juan Soto got to Arrieta, plating one run with an RBI double and also launching a two-run home run. He yielded just one hit otherwise, although he did walk a pair and hit a batter, getting pulled after throwing 88 pitches across his five frames. The Phillies stormed back with five runs in the bottom of the fifth to get Arrieta off the hook but they wound up losing in extra innings. Just one of Arrieta’s last six starts have been of the "quality" variety. He’ll get the Mets the next time out.
Sep 11 - 11:58 PM

Monday's game between the Nationals and Phillies has been postponed due to poor field conditions.

They'll try to play a doubleheader Tuesday instead, although it's supposed to rain most of the day in Philadelphia. Jake Arrieta and Erick Fedde will be pushed back a day.
Sep 10 - 7:22 PM

Jake Arrieta allowed four runs over 7 1/3 innings and struck out 11 against the Marlins on Tuesday.

Arrieta was given a big early lead in this one, which seemed to cause him to pound the strike zone and try to go deep. He ended up throwing a season-high 77 strikes among his 108 pitches. The 11 strikeouts were also a season high. The win was his first since July 31.
Sep 4 - 11:03 PM

Jake Arrieta was pulled after allowing four runs in just three innings against the Nationals on Wednesday.

He served up two-run homers to both Trea Turner and Juan Soto in the third inning and was relieved after laboring through 75 pitches in three frames. He struck out three, walked three and allowed four hits total. He delivered a two-run single in his only at-bat. His team eventually won the game so he was able to avoid the loss despite not pitching well in this one. He is 9-9 with a 3.54 ERA in 26 starts.
Aug 30 - 12:40 AM

Jake Arrieta posted a quality start in Friday's loss to the Blue Jays, surrendering four runs (three earned) on six hits over six innings of work.

The right-hander punched out five on the evening while issuing three free passes. Most of his troubles stemmed from his inability to keep the ball in the yard, as Kendrys Morales tagged him for a solo homer in the second inning and Billy McKinney swatted a two-run shot in the third. Now 9-9 on the season, Arrieta will carry a 3.37 ERA and 1.22 WHIP into Wednesday's matchup against the Nationals.
Aug 24 - 9:54 PM

Jake Arrieta gave up only one run in six innings of work but that was enough to take a loss against the Mets on Saturday.

A bloop single by Wilmer Flores drove in Jeff McNeil in the fourth inning to spell Arrieta's demise in the tight ballgame. The veteran right-hander struck out six batters without issuing a walk and surrendered just four knocks in the quality start. The tough-luck loss drops his record to 9-8 despite a fine 3.25 ERA after 24 starts. His 101:42 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 138 1/3 innings is not very inspiring however, although he's done a good job of keeping the ball in the yard (12 homers allowed on the season). He lines up for an interleague matchup with the Blue Jays on Friday.
Aug 18 - 7:38 PM

Jake Arrieta was hit hard in Sunday's loss to the Padres, surrendering five runs on eight hits across his five innings of work.

The right-hander walked two and struck out four on the afternoon. Most of the damage against him was inflicted by one swing, as Freddy Galvis clubbed a grand slam in the third inning. He'll try to get back in the win column when he carries a 3.33 ERA and 1.23 WHIP into Friday's start against the Mets.
Aug 12 - 7:17 PM

Jake Arrieta fired eight scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

It was a sweltering 111 degrees outside Chase Field at first pitch, but that extreme heat seems mild in comparison to the blistering performance of Arrieta in this one. The 32-year-old righty only struck out four batters, but he scattered three hits and a pair of walks over eight shutout frames. He departed in line for the win, but had to settle for a no-decision after the Phillies bullpen failed to slam the door in the ninth. After a rocky start to his Philadelphia tenure, he has now allowed three runs or less in eight of his last nine starts dating back to June 20. He’s 9-6 with a 3.11 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 91/40 K/BB ratio in 22 starts. He’s slated to face the Padres in San Diego on Sunday.
Aug 7 - 2:57 AM

Jake Arrieta permitted just one run while fanning seven over seven innings in the Phillies' 3-1 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

The Phillies fell Monday in spite of Aaron Nola's gem, but they got back in the win column in this one on the strength of Arrieta's fine effort. The veteran right-hander gave up six hits and didn't issue a walk to go along with his seven punchouts. It's just the second time in 21 starts this season that Arrieta didn't walk a batter. He's currently lined up to face the Marlins, Padres and Mets over his next three outings. Yes, please.
Jul 31 - 11:24 PM

Jake Arrieta pitched six innings of three-run ball for a win Wednesday against the Dodgers.

The first of the three runs was unearned. Arrieta has now given up a whopping 17 unearned runs this year, more than a quarter of his total runs allowed (60). The Phillies' defense definitely deserves a high percentage of the blame, but with his strikeout rate way down, Arrieta hasn't been very good at bailing out the guys behind him.
Jul 25 - 4:05 PM

Jake Arrieta allowed five runs -- four earned -- in 3 1/3 innings in a no decision against the Padres on Friday.

Arrieta was fortunate to pick up the no decision, but fortunately for Arrieta, Clayton Richard was worse. He once again was hurt by his defense, but the veteran right-hander allowed six hits and walked three in the shaky outing. Arrieta has now registered a 3.47 ERA, and he’s struck out 74 hitters over 106-plus innings in 16 starts. His next scheduled start comes against the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Jul 20 - 10:28 PM

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.
